Nintendo has confirmed that they will localize the third entry in the Fossil Fighter series as Fossil Fighters: Frontier. The 3DS game is known as Fossil Fighters: Infinite Gear in Japan. The biggest change in this version is that players can now utilize vehicles and drive around to excavate fossils, which then transform into dinosaurs. Check out additional features below. This latest Fossil Fighters series will be out for 3DS sometime next year.

A Bone to Pick
The latest game in the Fossil Fighters series delivers a first: Players can now hop into their vehicles and drive around exotic locations to excavate fossils, which transform into real-life dinosaurs known as Vivosaurs. Players battle their Vivosaur with wild Vivosaurs they encounter on digging adventures.



• While driving, set off radar blasts to help discover dinosaur fossils. Different buggies possess different features. A racing buggy, for example, goes fast and allows players to reach faraway places,
while a carrier buggy is great for transporting more items.
• Unearth ancient dinosaur fossils that come to life and transform into Vivosaurs. Clean fossils using tools like hammers and drills on the Nintendo 3DS* touch screen, but don’t be hasty: Carefully cleaning fossils makes the transformed Vivosaur more effective when it comes time to battle.
• Using local online play, players can explore and excavate the dig sites as a three-player team.
• Bring the Vivosaur you are training to join six-player local and online Vivosaur battles**, fighting three-on-three in a stadium.
