Nintendo of Europe has announced pricing details for IronFall: Invasion’s single and multiplayer modes before its arrival on the 3DS eShop this Friday. Developed by VD-Dev, the third-person shooter is part of a three-year project by a group of talented indie developers and brings glorious 60 FPS to the handheld with intense action in two separate modes. Though we heard the game was launching on the eShop on February 13, Nintendo had yet to detail the title’s price.
IronFall: Invasion will feature a single player campaign and a multiplayer mode, both of which can either be purchased separately for £8.88 / €9.99, or as part of a bundle for £17.98 / €19.98. Given the slight differences in price, 3DS users purchasing both modes separately will receive an HR pistol for multiplayer, yet players who buy them at the bundled price will receive both the HR pistol and a Jukebox feature that allows access to the game’s soundtrack.
But if you’d rather test out the third-person shooter, you can do so with a special demo available from the eShop at the game’s launch. Players can demo the first level from the single player mode and one multiplayer arena, with a limited choice of characters and weapons. Make sure you check out the game’s launch trailer above.

At a time when Earth has been invaded by an alien horde, IRONFALL Invasion pits you in the military boots of a courageous resistance movement fighting to reclaim the planet from the clutches of the Dyxides. The action will take players across the globe, with intense battles raging across urban landscapes, underground laboratories, vast canyons, and even inside a volcano, with the constant need to find cover in the environments and keep an eye on your heart rate – if the latter exceeds 200, your fight is over.
For Nintendo 3DS system owners, the touch screen is your key battle instrument, with the ability to aim at enemies using the stylus, while also enabling you to perform other actions like reloading weapons or dropping into cover. Meanwhile, for players with New Nintendo 3DS or New Nintendo 3DS XL hardware, the system’s C Stick allows for quick and precise aiming when targeting enemies in the heat of a stand-off.
IRONFALL Invasion: Campaign features 11 action-packed single-player levels, as well as 78 additional challenges that are unlocked as you progress through your overall mission to liberate Earth.
IRONFALL Invasion: Multiplayer allows for up to six players to face-off in local and online multiplayer scenarios, with 6 different arenas, classic modes from “3 vs. 3” to “free-for-all”, and even the ability to bet in-game credits, which are tied to a player’s XP and rank, on your chances of winning a match. On top of this, a Survivor mode gives you the chance to train solo and hone your skills against CPU-controlled opponents within a variety of time-based scenarios.
