The anguished cries ring out all over Europe. "When will we get VVVVVV?". Nicalis' Tyrone Rodriguez says "soon".

Speaking at the IDEAM event in Spain — the same event where he announced 1001 Spikes for 3DS and Wii U — Rodriguez said European 3DS owners should get VVVVVV in "early May". North American gamers, you may remember, got the game on 29th December last year.

What of Nicalis' other upcoming platformer, NightSky? The studio's aiming for a release in June or July. Fingers crossed.
