Few games have given me the same sadistic pleasure as VVVVVV. Whenever I'm confused as to why people are so into games like Dark Souls, I remember how much pain I've put myself through playing and beating games like VVVVVV, Super Meat Boy and Bit.Trip Runner.

Within that context, it all makes sense.

If you never played VVVVVV on a Mac or PC, Nicalis is about to give you a new option: 3DS.

VVVVVV, which has players shifting gravity back and forth while navigating a world of very mean spikes, is coming to 3DS via the eShop, complete with new levels and the promise of "future updates."

VVVVVV is currently slated for a 3DS debut in "late 2011."

I can't wait to hate myself all over again.

VVVVVV are for spikes.

This is awesome!

Can't see myself getting this on 3DS, but VVVVVV's a great game :D

VVVVVV is my favourite under-$20 game to come out in 2010. For a game with literally one gameplay mechanic, there are a bunch of clever variations on how you have to use it. I thought the idea to give each room a unique name was pretty cool, and the soundtrack is phenomenal.

This is a brilliant, brilliant idea. Great way to support the fledgling download store for 3DS (unless it's on a cart, which is kind of a dumb idea).

Posted by Arker101

Hell yeah!

Posted by Surkov

I won't buy this because I don't have 3ds, but this game is excellent and more people need to play it.

Posted by chilibean_3

VVVVVV is pretty awesome. That is all.

I loved VVVVVV for the pc, and now I will love it on the 3DS.

Posted by Toms115

Well done Terry

He never said that. Nothing he said even comes close to that. He could have said "THOSE PEOPLE WHO PLAY DARK SOULS SURE ARE UPTIGHT, TAKE EVERYTHING PERSONALLY, AND HAVE KNEEJERK REACTIONS THAT MAKE THEM LOOK LIKE A BUNCH OF BABIES" though.

Posted by RE_Player1

I have this on the Mac and it's a incredible game. Also Brad said this game would never be on a platform other than PC on the Tested podcast. Does that mean he has to eat his words?

Posted by fisk0

Wow, the first actual reason to get an 3DS (even though I already own two copies of it on PC)

Posted by Mijati

I never understood all the love for this game, and that's coming from someone who loves this "genre". I beat it but wasn't too impressed, never really struggled with any parts of it.

That game is worth buying just for the soundtrack. Everyone should play it!

Brad just said yesterday on Tested's podcast that this would never happen. Get those eggs ready Will and Norm.

Posted by AlisterCat

This seems like a great fit, and will have inoffensive 3D I hope.

Edited by Grrbrr

But not for the DSi or DSi XL? They both have the dsiware shop, hardware capability and are more popular to my knowledge? Why would they limit it to the 3DS?

Posted by FoxMulder

Loved that game up until I got to an seemingly impossible part that needed to be completed in order to continue. I tried about a thousand times with no success. Not a bad game, just a very tough and demanding one.

@Grrbrr: Piracy? Yeah, probably all the piracy.

Posted by soupbones

Ug - I just beat it on Mac. If it has enough new content, I'll bite.

Music alone makes it worth a purchase.

Posted by Bobafeet

Such good music in that game.

Posted by Contro

Cool, but I'd rather have La Mulana on 3DS.

Posted by Nights

I'll have to check this out, Nifflas is a genius. Knytt Stories is amazing.

Posted by SleepyDoughnut

please don't be overly expensive

Posted by Rapid

Brad or Will either one of them, I don't remember will have to eat their words (on eggs) for saying VVVVVV

could not be on anything but the PC on the tested podcast lol

Posted by Romination

Sold.

Posted by tourgen

GREAT! This, this right here is what the eshop needs. Get all those great indie platformers, get them on the eshop, with minor mods to make use of the bottom screen. maybe the touch sensor. Awesome move for everyone involved.

Posted by BrontoThunder

The same people who are porting this to the 3DS are also in talks with Edmund McMillen to bring Binding of Isaac to 3DS too, pretty great.

Also I find it funny that this was announced the day Brad says there's no way VVVVVV will ever be on another console on This is Only a Test

Posted by Tophat666

I love that Brad just said on just yesterday on the Tested podcast that VVVVVV would never come to consoles.

Edited by Silver-Streak

@Tophat666: You realize he's still correct, right? 3DS is a handheld. (Edit: While you could say it's a "handheld console", people do not generally associate handheld systems as part of the term "console")

Posted by VincentVendetta

You know, normally I should be like "AWESOME!" but VVVVVV is one of the onlly recent PC game I can run properly.

Still, maybe that means I can recommand the game to people who own a 3DS.

Posted by craigbo180

Have it on pc but will buy it for 3DS as well. If VVVVVV is coming out in the E-shop maybe there is hope for good original downloadable games on a Nintendo handheld afterall. This really us terrific news.

Posted by Tophat666

@Eujin: Oh you know what I mean, I just found it funny.

Posted by Abendlaender

It's an awesome game but I never actually thought it was THAT hard.

Veni Vidi Vici is pretty though but the rest was not that hard and Veni Vidi Vici was optional

Posted by FreakAche

So when are they going to start announcing 3DS games that I don't already own?

Posted by Mercanis

This game is so much. It has a very simple gimmick, but it's used to great effect. I highly recommend it.

Edited by Crushed

NERDY LANGUAGE NITPICK: You would gain "masochistic" pleasure from VVVVVV, not "sadistic." Sadism is pleasure at the pain of others, masochism is pleasure at your own pain.

Posted by TheKbob

DSiware too? I'm down. 3DS? A giant "Nothankyou.jpeg".

Posted by norfair187

Fantastic news! Maybe I'll finally be able to overcome the nightmare which is Veni Vidi Vici. :P

I was banned for "portbegging" on stupid neogaf because I said the fact that this is coming out on 3DS, instead of the xb360 or PS3 is stupid. Seriously fuck the 3DS, this is a horrible platform for this game because 3D wouldn't make it any better, and the screen is too damn small. I wasn't port begging, I'm saying the 3DS fucking sucks.

The screen isn't that small considering you're holding the game like arms-length from your face, and this coming out on a portable platform is pretty cool. I might buy it, depending on the price. I'm not trying to say that you should have been banned from neogaf, but complaining a game is coming out on one platform rather than another seems kind of pointless.
Posted by Cybexx

Pfft, the 3DS does not have a 'V' key, what will you use to flip?

Seriously though this seems cool. Don't really know if the eShop will give this a bigger audience though.

Posted by MikeMetal

The only downside to this being on 3DS is it enables you to look like a crazy person on the bus. But it'll take attention away from the guy behind you who's peeing on the seats, so there's that.

Posted by Trebz

I'll probably get it. Never bought the PC version for whatever reason but the eShop is desperately in need of any games that aren't Let's Golf 3D so I'd be more than glad to represent an audience for them.
