If you've been following the 3DS Diaries, then you'll know that I'm currently suffering from a severe lack of games on my 3DS. Thankfully there are more on the way - it's just a matter of when. Pilotwings Resort arrives on April 14, and we've just gotten word that Steel Diver will hit shelves May 12.
Steel Diver is a weird one - even Iwata himself claims that the game is "somewhat plain", describing it as a game "where you control a submarine that doesn't go very fast."
But Shigeru Miyamoto has spent a fair amount of time on the project, and we're actually keen to see the results. Steel Diver was first shown at E3 2004 as a reference game for the DS, and has been toyed with in development ever since. Miyamoto has been clear that he wanted Steel Diver to be a simulation of controlling a 'machine', so in that respect it might turn out to be an interesting diversion.
