Nicalis To Publish Terry Cavanagh’s VVVVVV on 3DS eShop

October 6th, 2011 – Nicalis, Inc., developer and publisher of independently awesome video games is VVVVVVery excited to announce a publishing agreement with Terry Cavanagh for VVVVVV on the Nintendo 3DS eShop. VVVVVV features the same amazingly retro gameplay, aesthetic and chiptune music (by Swedish musician, Magnus Pålsson), but now in 3D and on the go with your 3DS. Attendees of Indiecade in Culver City, California can play a near-complete preview VVVVVVersion for the first time on 3DS! Just find Terry Cavanagh or Tyrone Rodriguez and ask them to play!

Released in late 2010 for PC, VVVVVV is a 2D action-platformer deeply rooted in the days of 8-bit gaming with incredibly challenging gameplay and secrets. In VVVVVV, you play as Captain Viridian, who must not only save a dimension on the brink of collapse, but also find your ship’s crew–all of whose names begin with the letter V.

Now 3DS owners can experience the critically acclaimed game in 3D, anywhere. When asked for an obligatory quote, Terry Cavanagh said, “I’m VVVVVVery excited about it! This is the first time anything I’ve made has been on a console.”

VVVVVV 3DS Features:
Open-world environment with six unique levels
20 Trinkets to locate and collect
Full 3D awesomeness integrated into the retro-looking art style

  • Dual screen functionality with a real-time map!
  • Music by Magnus Pålsson
  • New Featured Levels
  • Future content updates

VVVVVV continues Nicalis’ partnerships with highly talented and super-awesome independent developers. Previously Nicalis has teamed up with Studio Pixel (Cave Story, Ikachan), Nicklas Nygren (NightSky) and NIGORO (La-Mulana). Now Terry Cavanagh’s incredible VVVVVV, too, will make the jump–er, flip–to console.

This is fantastic news. Of course knowing Nicalis there's going to be a billion delays before it actually comes out.

I had a feeling it would come to portables, now I feel bad for buying it on the Mac App Store. Then again, I would f***ing love more than anything to play this with a real D-Pad, so I'm in.

@cheetahman91 - I think Nicalis has learned with Cave Story and La-Mulana on WiiWare not to announce a game when you've still got months years to go before a release. I think DSiWare Cave Story came out only 2-3 months after Nicalis announced it.

If this is $5 or less, I am buying this. This game deserves to do well and this is the support on the E-Shop that Nintendo needs.

@Birdman13: Isn't Europe still waiting for CS DSiWare? I don't think they've learned anything at all tbh, not with the way we're still waiting for La Mulana and NightSky, lol. VVVVVV will be a day-one purchase for me to be sure, but i will not be holding my breath for it :3
