Dillon's Dead-Heat Breakers
About this game
Content Rating: Everyone
As a team, defend a post-apocalyptic wild west from an invasion of transforming rock monsters alongside your Mii™ character, Dillon the armadillo, and his squirrel engineer, Russ. Recruit hired gunners to back you up in battle, and then roll into fights and high-speed chases and take down waves of enemies as Dillon—the "Red Flash" himself! Eighty years ago, a cataclysmic event devastated the world. Holed up in "The City" and outlying frontier towns, no survivor is safe now that a mysterious ship has unleashed an army of supercharged monsters. So, prepare for battle: gather resources by helping local businesses and winning races. Then stock up, man the towers, and strengthen barricades to protect each village's livestock! Discover new strategies to take out over 30 different types of enemies: some swim, some dig, some are electrified, poisonous, armored—even flying. Monsters transform into wheeled forms, racing into action-packed, high-speed chases!

Dillon’s Dead-Heat Breakers has turned into a nice eShop surprise. Why Nintendo isn’t releasing this full priced game as a physical copy (in North America anyway) is a mystery. In fact, I’d like to see the entire trilogy compiled for a 3DS physical release or reworked for the Switch. Either way, Dillon’s Dead-Heat Breakers is a game I can put in a good word for.
The muck you must wade through before you get to the action is unavoidable, but when you do finally get through, it’s compelling. Speeding around the levels as Dillon, slamming into enemies and pulling off last-second saves as animal versions of my friends and family cheer me on is exhilarating.
The only shame is that Dead-Heat Breakers is launching on the 3DS at a time when the system is old hat. If you have the desire to put down your Switch and play some 3DS, Dillon’s Dead-Heat Breakers is very much recommended. Here’s hoping the silent armadillo makes it to the greener pastures of the Switch in the future.
