It’s always fun finding a new game I missed on 3DS, especially as it nears the end of it’s lifespan. Apparently, 6180 the Moon was previously released on XBox One, Wii U, iOS and Steam, but now it has been optimized for Nintendo 3DS. Developed by Korean based Turtle Cream, it looks to be a puzzle platformer which makes good use of dual screens.
6180 the Moon has already launched the 3DS version in both Europe and Australia, though it is slated to release in North America later on. While it doesn’t look super complex graphically speaking, it is only for the New Nintendo 3DS. Given the high praise the Wii U version of the game has received, I myself am looking forward to picking it up once it comes my way. For more details about 6180 the Moon, check out the full PR below.
Seoul, South Korea, Mar. 21th. 2017 – ‘6180 the moon’ Nintendo 3DS™ version released for Europe and Australia via Nintendo eShop. Price is just 3.99$ (USD) or similar for each country.
‘6180 the moon’ is very unique platformer. The top and bottom of the screen are connected so you can jump over the screen and come out of the bottom, and vice versa. Plus it has astonishing ambient style soundtrack, which every gamer will adore.
Originally, ‘6180 the moon’ (Windows PC) released on Steam in 2014. After that, Turtle Cream changed development tool, then launched improved version on Xbox One, iOS and Wii U™.
Turtle Cream worked very hard to port the original game to Nintendo 3DS, after they released Wii U version. Nintendo 3DS version also uses both of Dual screen as Wii U version. So player can jump from lower screen to upper screen, and vice versa. All levels are retouched based on Wii U version, to be right for Nintendo 3DS dual screens. Even if you enjoyed it before for PC or Xbox One or even Wii U, gaming experience will be very different. Try to see how it’s different!

The Moon sets off on a journey to find the Sun. Along the journey will be hazardous courses and deep realizations.
