Bowling, Tower Defense and the Wild West Converge in The Rolling Western

The headline describes The Rolling Western about as best as it can be described with little other information to go on at the moment. From the early trailer footage, this upcoming Nintendo 3DS eShop downloadable stars what I’m guessing is an armadillo hero named Jiro, who balls up and spin-rolls into things kinda like Sonic, but also has upgradeable towers at his disposable to defend his Wild West town against waves of monsters. Very strange combination – I like it!

Watch the trailer and see what you can make of this oddball title.
