Following in the footsteps of other great Flash-based games like Alien Hominid, comes N+ for the Nintendo DS and PSP, a platformer-action title starring a stick figure ninja. 

The original Flash game (which can be downloaded here) featured 500 levels and homicidal robots. Seriously, what else do you need?

“N+ takes all the great elements of the flash game, from the amazing acrobatics to the simple-but-fast gameplay, and adds an impressive set of new features,” said Stephen Baer, senior global product manager, Atari, Inc. “With full support for wireless multiplayer, cartridge sharing ability, downloadable content and community leader boards, gamers will be able to settle, once and for all, who is the greatest ninja.”

Oh … well, I guess that’s what the game needed.

No word on whether or not the stylus will be used for controls in the Nintendo DS version of N+, but the game does feature a level editor in which players can use the touch screen to design levels. PSP users, on the other hand, can use the extra UMD loading time to think about level design, giving them a distinct advantage in that department.

N+ will be available this November.

Cult Hit “N” Being Updated for Nintendo DSTM and PSP® System

NEW YORK, June 4: Atari, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATAR) one of the world’s most recognized brands and a third-party video game publisher, today announced the development of N+, the successor to the award-winning and beloved flash ninja game N. Created by Metanet and developed by SilverBirch Studios, N+ will leap onto the Nintendo DSTM and the PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system in November 2007.

Adding to the successful formula that made N a hit online, N+ will offer equal parts platformer and action gameplay with incredibly fluid animation, fast action, amazing acrobatics and instant playability. N+ embodies the same brisk pick-up-and-play style that has endeared gamers worldwide and improves on the adored flash game with downloadable content, multiplayer components and a built-in level editor.

“N+ takes all the great elements of the flash game, from the amazing acrobatics to the simple-but-fast gameplay, and adds an impressive set of new features,” said Stephen Baer, senior global product manager, Atari, Inc. “With full support for wireless multiplayer, cartridge sharing ability, downloadable content and community leader boards, gamers will be able to settle, once and for all, who is the greatest ninja.”

New features like cooperative and competitive multiplayer modes and level sharing over the ad-hoc PSP system and wireless Nintendo DS connections will expand upon the gameplay possibilities that have made original flash game a sensation. Complimenting the game’s ‘old-school’ feel, the control layout uses directional buttons and one of the face buttons to jump and move. With the built-in level editor, players can use the stylus to design maps and share them with friends or the world and downloadable content will continue to add exciting elements long after the game’s initial release.
