Pangea Announces Nanosaur 2 Ship Date, 3D Glasses Support
11:15 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story
Pangea Software today announced that its upcoming game, Nanosaur II: Hatchling, will be shipping on March 10th. In addition, the company announced plans for support for 3D glasses in Nanosaur 2. In addition to being able to play the game in a normal video mode, Nanosaur 2 can also be played with 3D glasses. The missiles, laser beams, and explosions all come popping out of the screen at you in true stereographic 3D.
Here's more from the official press release:
Both “red-blue” anaglyph glasses and LCD shutter glasses are supported by the game, and Pangea says that they will be including two pairs of custom-made anaglyph glasses in each box. “We’ve had custom 3D glasses made which are specifically calibrated for Apple LCD displays,” says Brian Greenstone, President of Pangea Software, “These custom glasses work incredibly well and give a seriously impressive 3D effect! This is going to blow people away when they see it! I especially like playing the 2-player battle modes with the glasses on since there’s so much weaponry flying around in those levels.” Lots of additional information and Nanosaur 2 screenshots can be found on the Nanosaur 2 website, linked below. Be sure to stay tuned to IMG as we'll be posting a special preview of the game, including movie clips from the game on IMG soon.
Pangea has set March 10th as the release date for Nanosaur 2. That is when the download version (both demo and full) will be available for $24.95, and pre-orders will be taken for the boxed CD version for $34.95 which includes the two pairs of 3D glasses. The boxed version is expected to ship sometime around March 22nd. Users who buy the download version of Nanosaur 2 will still be able to get the custom-made 3D glasses, since the company that makes them will be selling them on their web site - 2 pairs for $5.00.
A special web page has been posted on the Pangea Software site which details additional information about the anaglyph and LCD shutter glasses, and information on where to buy them. The page also includes some 3D screenshots from the game which you will need red-blue or red-cyan anaglyph glasses to view: www.pangeasoft.net/nano2/3dglasses.html
