Explore, dig and battle your way through a pre-historic world either as a solo explorer or alongside friends! In Fossil Fighters Frontier, play as a young Fossil Warden protecting precious Fossil Parks across the world from a cruel villain, Dr. Baron von Blackraven, who is intent on ruling the world using the power of Vivosaurs - extra powerful and extra colourful dinosaurs!
Explore a huge 3D world with hidden riches to discover while travelling around in your customisable Bone Buggy vehicle. Track down precious fossils, excavate them, before watching them revive into Vivosaurs. You can then send these Vivosaurs - of which there are over 80 to discover in-game - into turn-based battles to take on your enemies.
To get a powerful line-up of Vivosaurs, excavate precious fossils in the wild using the touch screen of your Nintendo 3DS family system to carefully clean them. However, finding fossils and collecting revived Vivosaurs is only part of the fun, as you control these prehistoric creatures in epic battles! All Vivosaurs fall into one of five elemental categories - Water, Fire, Air, Earth and Neutral - and possess different attack moves and a special ability that will assist them in battle.
There are many different types of battles in the game, including story-based battles that take place in the main campaign, daily tournaments accessed from the Fossil Stadium, or even StreetPass battles that let players train against other Vivosaurs they pick up while using the StreetPass feature.
- 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.
