Nicalis on Raven's jump to Vita, new color man and more

In a hidden red room just outside of the main PAX show floor, many wonderous new videogames could be found. Nicalis was showing Aban Hawkins and the 1,001 Spikes, VVVVVV, and Legend of Raven (formerly known as Yatagarasu) on...

Here's the new cast of Aban Hawkins & the 1001 Spikes

Jonathan and Tony were able to play some Aban Hawkins & the 1001 Spikes at PAX Prime 2013, including testing out guest characters in the new cooperative mode. The original release on Xbox 360 was tremendously fun in that...

VVVVVV is coming to the PlayStation VVVVVVita

One of my favorite games of this decade so far (funnily enough it arrived just at the start of the decade in 2010), VVVVVV, is coming to the PlayStation Vita, publisher Nicalis has announced. It doesn't sound like a...

Nicalis publishing Kemco RPG Grinsia on 3DS

[Update: Added new 3DS specific trailer!] Working for a magazine is different from writing for a blog in a lot of ways. Probably the biggest difference is reading the exclusive news from your publication at the same time the...

Play Aban Hawkins & the 1001 Spikes with friends

Well now, isn't that something? A handful of us here at Destructoid are pumped for Aban Hawkins & the 1001 Spikes, a Nicalis-published revamp of the brutal Xbox Live Indie Games platformer. It's a blast to watch as tensio...

Nightsky 3DS is finally coming to Europe

Remember Nightsky? That pretty awesome game by Nicalis that hit the 3DS eShop last year? Well it looks like Europeans are finally getting the chance to experience this whimsical puzzler on February 21st, for €9.99. I can...

Aban Hawkins and the 1,001 Spikes' level editor in action

We haven't heard anything from Nicalis about their forthcoming 3DS/Wii U/and-maybe-other-consoles title Aban Hawkins and the 1,001 Spikes in a while. That's probably because they've been busy with stuff like Ikachan, Guxt, Ra...

Review: Ikachan (3DS eShop)

Wading through the flood of Cave Story ports and remakes, with new ones seemingly being announced every hour on the hour, it's easy to forget that creator Daisuke "Pixel" Amaya has indeed made other games. One of his earliest...

Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is being made for PC, PS3, Vita

Yesterday was a good day for fans of The Binding of Isaac, as we learned that the remake of the game for consoles will be getting a new 16-bit look and local co-op support. There were a number of unanswered questions, however...

Guxt eShop remake rains with brain melting color

Please turn your internet viewer 90 degrees counter clockwise to properly display of the image above. That should give you an idea of how Guxt will look after you buy it on the 3DS eShop. As someone who loves the origina...

Cave Story creator's Guxt coming to 3DS eShop

It was only a few weeks ago that we had Tyrone Rodrigues, President of Nicalis, publisher of eShop versions of Cave Story, VVVVVV, and NightSky on Sup Holmes. We commanded Tyrone to tell us about everything he was ...

Review: NightSky (3DS eShop)

Some people prefer their games to be big, bloated, fleshy bags of excess, packed to the gills with everything that they can cram down their gullets. Others prefer their games to be a little more skeletal, pointed in their exe...

Review: Cave Story (3DS eShop)

For those of you who have lost count, this is the third time that I've reviewed Cave Story, and the second time I've reviewed it on the 3DS platform. That may sound like a lot, but I've actually been slacking. This eShop-spec...

Aban Hawkins and the 1,001 Spikes aims for the big time

Aban Hawkins and 1,000 Spikes (by 8BitsFanatics) didn't get a fair shake. The game is better than 99% of the stuff on the Xbox Live Arcade marketplace, but sadly, that's not where it even ended up. Instead, it launched on XB...
