It wouldn’t be a surprise if this game slipped off peoples’ radar, but in 2008 Nintendo released a DS title called Fossil Fighters, which stars a young boy who moves to an island called “Vivosaur Island”. The aim of the game is to excavate fossils on the DS’ touch screen, then have them revived into dinosaurs to battle other “Fossil Fighters”.
The franchise eventually made the transition to the Nintendo 3DS earlier this February with Fossil Fighters: Infinite Gear and today, Nintendo announced via a trailer on their YouTube channel that the game is coming to the west in 2015, under the new name Fossil Fighters Frontier. I was starting to think that E3 lacked dinosaurs, so Nintendo have arrived to deliver again!
Here is the official trailer:
