Nicalis Bringing 1001 Spikes to 3DS, Wii U

The XBLIG remake is shooting for a Wii U launch release.

An enhanced version of the Xbox Live Indie Game,  Aban Hawkins & the 1000 Spikes will be coming to the 3DS and Wii U, according to Tyrone Rodriguez of Nicalis. The upgraded port will be known as 1001 Spikes and currently the title has no set release date. The 3DS eShop version of the game will launch first, with the Wii U version to expectedly launch alongside the system.

Developed by JPN 8bit fanatics, Aban Hawkins & the 1000 Spikes is an old school platformer that features a variety of Indiana Jones-inspired characters traversing treacherous landscapes, including the aforementioned 1000 spikes. The game features 8-bit NES graphics and a steep difficulty curve. Similar to the 1000 spikes, players are provided with 1000 lives.

Nicalis previously helped bring Cave Story to Nintendo's WiiWare service and recently released another indie game, VVVVVV, to the 3DS eShop. The new version coming to the Wii U and 3DS eShop will include redesigned art and sound and will add four-player local multiplayer. The original game is available now on the Xbox Live Marketplace for $1.
