Nintendo will dip its toe into the waters of free-to-play gaming for the first time with a fresh version of its submarine sim Steel Diver, a new report suggests.
First party 3DS launch title Steel Diver was originally planned as a DSiWare download, Nintendo has revealed.
Zumba Fitness has toppled Portal 2 to regain the UK all format chart's coveted top spot.
Steel Diver, Nintendo's 3DS submarine combat simulator, launches in the UK on 6th May, the publisher has confirmed.
The 3DS remake of Zelda: Ocarina of Time will be out "when it's ready" and, in any case, there are more than enough launch games to satisfy the needs of core gamers picking up Nintendo's new handheld on day one, according to the platform holder.

And so they'll be ready, they'll be ready soon. Just not in that initial time period of late March to early June."
Reggie added that the launch line-up is robust enough to satisfy the needs of serious gamers without the presence of Link and co.
