One of my favorite things about the Nintendo eShop is that it allows developers to offer more varied experiences with less risk. Planet Crashers, coming in just a few days, looks to be on the higher end of the eShop scale. Planet Crashers is a new story-driven RPG with a colorful cartoony look from developer Renegade Kid. You play as a bright young cadet, a recent graduate from the Planet Crashers Academy, in an adventure to literally save the sun from an evil force.
The game features a fully customizable character, tons of dungeons to explore, online multiplayer, and interesting turn-based combat, which looks similar to the upcoming Paper Mario. Planet Crashers is launching to 3DS eShop July 26 for $9.99.
