Some more Raid Over The River info and screens!

Raid Over The RiverEarlier today, Nibris revealed a bunch of character art and story details of Raid Over The River, their new vertical shooter game for the Nintendo DS. To go along with that, we have now received more information about the game itself.

Raid Over The River will offer six detailed campaigns which take place in 6 different time dimensions – from ancient Greece, through Europe of WWII, Soviet Russia of the Cold War, present United States, to Germany of 2018 and Japan of the unspecified future. In each of the campaigns, players will get a vehicle that is accurate to the historical period – so there’ll probably be a big variety, ranging from WWII planes to highly futuristic machines. In contrast to other shoot ’em ups, Raider Over The River’s story is a complex multi-thread scenario spanning several dimensions. Cutscenes in a cartoon style advance the story between missions.
Many weapons and items will be available to the player, core ammunition, sonic blasters and plasma cannons to name some. As with every shoot ’em up, special weaponry will also be provided, starting with simple gravity bombs, seeker missiles, and going up to calling in squadrons of wingmen or laser attacks from satellites.

Nibris hopes that one feature will set Raid Over The River apart from it’s other games in the genre – a special dodging system, making the player’s vehicle much more maneuverable. Even with a 2D top-down perspective, 3D moves are available: Rotation, nose-diving, and barrel-rolls. They’ll be executed with the help of the touchscreen and microphone and are sometimes crucial in completing a mission. Each of the vehicles is going to have a special move of its own.

The full set of campaigns are going to take about 10 hours to complete, but re-playability isn’t lost then. Apart from the story mode, there are Arcade, Dogfight and Survival modes to be enjoyed in single-player. Hidden missions, vehicles and weapons can be unlocked, and finally, a bunch of multiplayer modes (Cooperative, The Raid, Raid over the Galaxy, Special mode) will be provided.
The developers know their game sounds very ambitious – and to give you a better idea how it’s actually going to look, here are three more screenshots:
