The Xbox Live Indie Game remake is hoping to be out for the Wii U's launch this year.

1001 Spikes, a retro-inspired platformer, is coming to 3DS and Wii U's downloadable platforms this year courtesy of Nicalis, according to Nicalis' Tyrone Rodriguez at the Idéame conference last week.

The title is a remake of the Xbox Live Indie Game Aban Hawkins & the 1000 Spikes, which is available on service for $1 if you're interested in checking out. It stars an Indiana Jones-esque character who is trying to save the woman he loves. Along the way, he has to dodge a bunch of spikes (perhaps 1000 of them) and absurdly difficult platforming challenges. The new version will include redesigned art and sound, as well as four-player local multiplayer.

The 3DS version will likely hit the eShop before the Wii U version comes out. Nicalis is hoping to have the Wii U version out for the system's launch, though.

In before "What about Europe for VVVVVV?" (EDIT: apparently they did answer that. It's coming in early May) and "Where the hell is La Mulana?"

But seriously, those are questions that need answering before you announce more games, Nicalis...

Yeah, where is La Mulana?

And am I the only one starting to become ever so slightly concerned about the rising tide of retro, indie, incredibly difficult platformers?  This is starting to become the Zombies/WW2/Modern War of indie games.

I, for one, will take as many indie retro platformers as they're willing to throw at me. Between those and Nintendo's recent entries, the platformer genre, my favorite, is at a level not seen since the heyday of the early '90s.

I don't want to hear a thing about Xbox live until I see Super Meat Boy on the 3ds! I've already payed 15 dollars for the Steam version and I can't play it! My computer's from 2000..

Eh...you're not missing much.  You're out $15, but I'm out 3 hours of my life that I'm never going to get back.
