escapeVektor Hacks Into 3DS eShop on 20th December
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
The wait is over
escapeVektor: Chapter 1 is one of WiiWare's finest games, though its arrival in late September 2011 didn't spark the multiple follow-ups that were expected. Developer Nnooo decided, after the first part was released, that it'd be better served releasing all four planned parts as one title — though Chapter 1 was an excellent standalone game.
At that point escapeVektor was confirmed for the 3DS eShop, as well as the PS Vita, so those who loved the WiiWare title and wanted more had an end goal in sight. The final result is now ready, and the worldwide release date has been set to 20th December; the confirmed prices are US$9.99/€9.99/AUD$13/NZD$17.
This one, as it incorporates four chapter's worth of content, promises plenty of bang for your buck; details from the press release are below.
There are 150 levels in escapeVektor, spread across 27 different worlds," said Nic Watt, Creative Director at Nnooo. We've also included additional enemies and obstacles, 3 types of online leaderboard and a new Wildcard system. We're really happy with how this "complete edition" version of the game has turned out."
Players will be able to check their scores for each level of the game against scores of their friends, other players in their area and all players in the world using escapeVektor's 3-tier leaderboard system. In addition, when a player completes a level for the first time, or beats a previous high-score on a level, they will be awarded a Wildcard. Wildcards can be played before starting a level and will double a player's score if they successfully complete that level. However, the Wildcard will be lost if the player fails to complete the level.
That's a lot of levels, and the leaderboards and wildcards should add some incentive for high-score obsessives. Are you looking forward to taking on the complete adventure? Check out the new trailer and let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
