Deer Drive Legends is a three-dimensional hunting video game, developed by Raylight s.r.l.[1] This 3D hunting game was published by Maximum Games and released on the Nintendo 3DS in May 2012 for both retail and download via Nintendo eShop.[2] It was later ported as a Wii and Windows PC game, and released in November 2012. The PC version was retitled as Deer Hunt Legends. Unexpectedly, the Wii version of the game was eventually re-released as a WiiWare title on November 19, 2013,[3] the first WiiWare title ever since Retro City Rampage launched on the platform in February 2013. Only the Nintendo 3DS and WiiWare versions of the game were released in Europe in August and November 2013 respectively, wherein the Nintendo 3DS version is exclusively an eShop downloadable with a reduced price.[4][5]

Deer Drive Legends is rated T for Teens by the ESRB.[6] Deer Drive Legends has little relation to the 2007 Deer Drive and 2009 Deer Drive games, other than having similar titles and deer hunting concepts.


Deer Drive Legends takes place in numerous locations throughout the world, including the African Savannah, Rocky Mountains, and Great Lakes. Players will explore famed hunting regions across four continents in search of the biggest trophy.[7]


Players will take down a number of elusive animals such as bears, antelope, elk, deer, moose, and mountain lions. The game also features prehistoric species such as the Smilodon, T-Rex, and Gastornis.[8]
