1001 Spikes

A release teaser has been released ahead of 1001 Spikes coming to the eShop in North America today.

It’s coming today in North America but for those of you who can’t wait, here’s some fresh footage of 1001 Spikes. Will you be picking it up?

The 3DS version of 1001 Spikes won’t include multiplayer elements, according to Nicalis. However, Nintendo fans can count on multiplayer for the game’s Wii U version.

Nicalis wrote on Twitter yesterday:


1001 Spikes has been confirmed for release on June 3 for Wii U and 3DS, Nicalis has announced. Pricing is set at $14.99.

Those who have purchased the company’s previous games will be entitled to a $5 discount for the 3DS version. That means if you own VVVVVV, NightSky, Cave Story, Ikachan or Grinsia, then 1001 Spikes will only cost $9.99.

Nicalis did come across “a few issues” in 1001 Spikes, but decided to go ahead and release the title now rather than push it back further “because our fans want to play the game and we don’t plan to leave our Nintendo fans behind on a game they’ve been patiently waiting for.” Nicalis does intend to put out an update “within a couple of days of release to knock out those bugs.”

The official Nintendo mini-site for 1001 Spikes was recently updated, dating the game ‘s Wii U release for June 3. Publisher and developer Nicalis Inc. are yet to release an official announcement regarding the date, but this means we could potentially have the game very soon.
