Terry Cavanagh's latest indie game will make its first 3D appearance.

Nicalis has announced that they will be publishing Terry's Cavanagh's VVVVVV as a 3DS eShop title.

The title is a platformer designed to resemble the classic games of yesteryear, complete with a 8-bit graphical style and chip tune music courtesy of Magnus Palsson. VVVVVV was released late in 2010 for the PC. The main character of the game is Captain Viridian, who must rescue his ship crew, whose names humorously start with the letter "V".

While Nicalis promises that gameplay will remain the same, some new features will be added to this edition of VVVVVV, such as 3D graphics, dual-screen functionality and new levels.

No date has been confirmed for VVVVVV.

Soon as i saw "VVVVVV coming to...." (and the rest was obscured) i knew Jonny would be all up in his buttered camel in here.

I saw a very informative review for this game.

Very cool. VVVVVV was superb on PC. The question is, in what form is it coming to 3DS? It's only 3 or 4 hours from beginning to end - it's good that they're promising new levels, but even then, it may seem a bit light for a full retail release. As a download, it'd be perfect.

I've watched some videos of this game, and TBH it hurts my brain...a lot. Also kinda makes my eyes go funny. Not the sort of thing for me but I know for a fact that the gameplay is excellent.

I love VVVVVV.  If the price is right, I might just buy it again to be able to take it everywhere with me.

That'll teach me not to just read a headline and be done with it. In that case, I don't think you can go wrong with VVVVVV, assuming the transition to a new platform goes well for this little indie treasure.

VVVVVV was already a download-only release on PC... it would make no sense to put it on expensive physical media unless you're going to totally remake it like Cave Story 3D. I feel quite confident that Nicalis will do the right thing and put this on eShop.
