Wobbly Tooth has shared first screenshots and details for its new 3DS eShop game “Battleminer”.

The developer describes Battleminer as “an open-world block game exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS. In a world where giant, mutant Ants have taken over, your mission is to rescue Survivors that are hostage to the Ants.” Survivors who are rescued will reward you with items or teach you the ability to craft new items yourself.

Players will be able to mine for various resources in Battleminer. These include wood, copper, zinc, and other materials. You’ll then be able to craft items such as weapons and ammunition to help you survive.

Different types of Ants will be encountered while you progress, and each has its own behaviors. New ant types will also present new challenges for the player.

Wobbly Tooth has also confirmed stereoscopic 3D support, a dynamic day-night cycle, and a peaceful Creative Mode where you can build your own structures and share screenshots of them via the Miiverse.

Battleminer is the first game on 3DS to feature a procedural voxel world with an infinite map size. And it’s all running at 60 frames-per-second.

We should be seeing Battleminer in North America in late October. The European/Australian release will follow “a month or two after that.” Expect a price point of $9.99 / £5.99 / €7.49.
