Steel Diver: Sub Wars is the first Nintendo free-to-play title to be released on the 3DS eShop.

During yesterday’s  Nintendo Direct livestream, the company also announced  Rusty’s Real Deal Baseball, a mini-game collection that will let players  haggle  over the price of DLC expansions.

Could this mark Ninetendo’s first cautionary steps toward mobile gaming?

Despite CEO Satoru Iwata  stating otherwise, analysts claim that these kinds of online experiments have far more in common with the booming smartphone gaming market than Nintendo’s traditional competitors.

Check out a trailer for Steel Diver: Sub Wars below.
