Nicalis bringing VVVVVV to 3DS eshop


Cave Story WiiWare/3D/+ developer Nicalis still has NightSky on the way for eShop, and now it’s announced another indie port: Terry Cavanagh’s flippety platformer VVVVVV. Nicalis is acting as publisher for the port of the 8-bit-looking platformer, about “Captain Viridian” searching an open world for his lost crew, and using the ability to flip gravity to navigate that world.

The look is the same as the original PC title, but according to Nicalis, “full 3D awesomeness” has been added to the art. Other changes include “future content updates” and “new featured levels,” as well as, of course, a map screen. It’s also supposed to release before the end of the year.

The resolution on the top screen seems to match that on the bottom screen, even though the 3DS screens are different sizes. Maybe this has vertical black bars like 3D Classics Twinbee? Investigate for yourself after the break.
