Nicalis pondering physical release for Cave Story on 3DS

Nicalis is considering a physical release for Cave Story, it seems. The studio posed a question to fans yesterday, inquiring as to whether a corporeal copy of the Nintendo 3DS eShop version is something folks would be in...

Have you played NightSky yet? We've got Steam codes for all of our members right now, courtesy of our friends at Nicalis.

Destructoid's Jonathan Holmes gave it an 8/10, calling NightSky a "physics-focused puzzle platformer that alternates between soothing the fuck out of the player and stressing them out with deceptively simple-looking obstacle courses."

To claim your code simply access your HUGE Perks page to grab your code and claim it on Steam. If there is a surplus of codes after members get dibs, we'll of course make the rest public.

Destructoid HUGE is a new way of supporting what we do: it offers you ad-free browsing, a better mobile and tablet experience, a 1080p and work-safe sneaky "Googtoid" page design, 25% off Destructoid Shot Glasses and Shirts, automatic entries to all of our contests, and funds cool new podcasts like The Core, and two unannounced shows we will be launching in the coming weeks (get hype!).  Check it out and thanks for reading us!

Aban Hawkins and the 1,001 Spikes adds dead tempura

Nintendo fans, remember how much you wanted to love Subspace Emissary? It's a crying shame. The slightly busted co-op, the sluggish, fudge-y platforming and generally uninteresting level design did a lot to mar Super Sma...

Nicalis on VVVVVV PS Vita, platform preference, and more

Hidden away among all the other PAX announcements was word that the PC and 3DS classicVVVVVV is headed to the PS Vita. No price point or talk of potential new content has been put out yet, but from m...

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
by Jordan Devore

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 familiar masochistic way, and based on how this video went, I'm utterly convinced co-op will be the way to go.

There's fun to be had, even in death. Nicalis' Tyrone Rodriguez was there to tell us about the new characters -- there are going to be more than a dozen in the final version, with varying abilities -- and offer a bit of moral support. Eventually, they brought Tyrone (and PlayStation's Shane Bettenhausen) on to show us all how 1001 Spikes is done. Dibs on Nyx of NyxQuest fame, is all I can say. Or maybe President Thompson -- I adore Tempura of the Dead.

The game's coming to Wii U, 3DS, PlayStation Vita, and PS4, so no excuses. We need to play this.

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...

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)
by Tony Ponce

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 efforts is Ikachan, released more than four years prior to the original 2004 version of Cave Story, in fact.

With lovely sprite work, soothing music, and charming characters, Ikachan laid down the framework for Cave Story. Through it, you get to see first-hand the genesis of Pixel's trademark style of open-world platforming, making Ikachan a very important digital milestone.

But if you go into Ikachan expecting anywhere near the same scope and depth as Cave Story, you will be sorely disappointed.

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...
