Nintendo finally officially unveiled the Nintendo 3DS handheld system today at E3, and some of its third-party partners provided a show of support that hasn’t been seen since the heyday of Electronic Arts a console generation ago. One such partner was Ubisoft, which today announced six — yes, six — unique titles will be available at the launch of the Nintendo 3DS.
The games span multiple genres and franchises, and they represent new IP and established ones. Here’s the list: Hollywood 61; Battle of Giants: Dinosaur Strike; Driver Renegade; Assassin’s Creed Lost Legacy; Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Chaos Theory; and Tom Clancys Ghost Recon.
Hollywood 61 (code name) is the industry’s first interactive 3D movie. The game lets players live the thrill of becoming the obsession of a criminal mastermind, in the process solving the deadly mystery with 150 classic and 3D puzzles.
In Battle of Giants: Dinosaur Strike, players experience life 150 million years ago, when nature’s fury was unleashed and forced dinosaurs to fight for survival. Gamers will dive into battle and deal powerful blows to their worst dino enemies as they try to rule the cataclysmic Jurassic world.
Driver: Renegade will be the first action-driving game on Nintendo 3DS and a system-exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS as well. Driver: Renegade lets players experience the intensity of urban car chases as former cop John Tanner, who works outside the law to fight crime in the gritty streets of New York and defeat the five crime lords who own the city.
Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Chaos Theory marks the handheld return of Sam Fisher, but in a redesigned version of the console game of the same name. Gamers will experience one of the most acclaimed games in the Splinter Cell franchise, but in 3D.
In Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon, players will lead the elite “Ghosts” special forces across multiple tactical missions to prevent a war from breaking out. And in Assassin’s Creed Lost Legacy, Ezio Auditore will travel east in search of the lost castle at Masyaf, the ancient seat of the Assassins, in his personal mission to understand the origins of his Order.
