Antipole, which emerged in 2011 on DSiWare, was a run 'n gun platformer with a gravity-inverting twist that fueled its fighting and puzzle elements. You also got to play as a red-clad, robot-destroying mercenary named Johnny Hurricane, which is way '90s cool.
Developer Saturnine Games has announced that a remake of Antipole will be making a return to both the Wii U and 3DS eShops this coming future. Dubbed Antipole DX, the remake is said to feature a number of upgrades. In addition to fully remade graphics and sound, the original levels will be retooled and all-new ones added. The game will also take advantage of online capabilities with Miiverse support and and a leaderboard built around speedrunning.
Saturnine is currently hoping for a simultaneous release on both platforms this summer. In the meantime, you can compare a few new screenshots to the original title to see how things are shaping up. We enjoyed Antipole's platforming and/or hate robot invaders, giving the DSiWare title a favourable review. The deluxe version might end up being one to not let escape your gravity.
