Nicalis, the folks who helped make the most recent versions of Cave Story and VVVVVV a possibility, are collaborating with Circle Edge to put a fighting game out on the 3DS eShop in North America and Europe.

Originally released in Japan last year, Yatagarasu was developed by a very small team: artist Styleos handled the art direction and character design; ex-SNK designer Umezono headed up balance and game design; and Shiza was responsible for the game engine.

Yatagarasu uses a four-button layout with a parry system and has both single- and two-player Versus, in addition to training and replay modes. Look for a playable build of the game next week at PAX Prime in the Indie Megabooth (specifically, booth #883).

Mega Man 5 hits Wii U, Mega Man StreetPass puzzle hits 3DS

Rehashing is not new for Capcom. Still, does it feel like, just maybe, the excitement over Keiji Inafune's two not-Mega Men has spurred Capcom to release a bunch of Mega Man stuff this month? Maybe. Mega Man 5 ...more
