For the Japanese release of Tank! Tank! Tank!, Namco Bandai opted for a free-to-play approach, releasing a segment of the game free on the eShop and selling the rest of it as microtransactions. Following the European retail launch, Namco has announced plans to re-release the game as F2P in that region as well.

The base download will include Monster Battle, Free-For-All, and Team Versus modes, playable up to three times. The first add-on includes the entertaining My Kong mode, temporarily discounted 80% to €1.99 /£1.59 through February 28.

While the piecemeal sale may not be ideal, a free demo is. We strongly suggest trying before you buy.
