by on March 24, 2011

In brightest day, in blackest night. The 3DS is out tonight. For those who join Nintendo’s fight, behold this news, and the coming green light!

For those of you unaware, there’s a Green Lantern film coming out on the 17th June 2011. As with just about every major motion picture of recent times there’s going to be a game that will tie into it. What we didn’t know, in regards to Green Lantern, is that there’s going to be a Nintendo 3DS version too. Warner Brothers’ first title on the sparkly new system no less.

The Nintendo 3DS version of the game is designed specifically to take advantage of the system’s stereoscopic 3D capabilities and deliver multi-plane graphics that delve players further into the Green Lantern universe.

Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters is inspired by Warner Bros Pictures’ upcoming Green Lantern film, which brings the enduringly popular DC Comics Super Hero to the big screen for the first time and stars Ryan Reynolds in the title role as Hal Jordan, the newest member of the Green Lantern Corps. In the videogame, gamers can use an arsenal of amazing constructs and take flight across the deepest parts of the universe to restore intergalactic order by wielding the ultimate weapon: the Green Lantern Power Ring. Gamers playing the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 versions will also have the option to join forces with a friend to play as Hal Jordan or Sinestro to battle the Manhunters.

The upcoming game title will also be available in standard 2D only for the Wii system and Nintendo DS handheld system, delivering an immersive experience across all platforms for Green Lantern fans that the entire family will enjoy.

Players on Xbox 360 and PS3 will be given the option to play in anaglyphic 3D with technology that is compatible with all standard and high definition TV sets and visible to players wearing the 3D glasses that will be available for the video game. Fans can also enjoy the game in stereoscopic 3D when playing on any 3D HDTV while wearing active shutter glasses that are compatible with the television.
