Nintendo director Takaya Imamura has revealed that the Version 2.0 update for Steel Diver: Sub Wars will be released later this month. The upcoming patch will add several tweaks to the first-person action game, including enhancements made to Internet Battle mode, and it will also introduce a new multiplayer stage. Steel Diver is available as a free download on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS.
“In Version 2.0, in Internet Battle mode, you will now also earn bonuses for consecutive victories in Matched Skills Battles,” Imamura said on Miiverse. “Additionally, owners of the Premium Version will have access to a larger arsenal of subs as they level up, and more subs will be made available for purchase in the Online Shop within the game.
“We also received a lot of feedback via Miiverse about players attacking their allies. In Version 2.0, players who torpedo their allies will receive a warning message on their screen, and points will be deducted for every hit. We’re also planning to add a new multiplayer stage, and to continue to fine-tune the submarine stats, among other things.”
