VVVVVV Coming to 3DS, Poised to Break the Most Handhelds of This Generation

on October 11, 2011 8:00 AM

VVVVVV, Terry Cavanagh’s hard-as-a-monkey’s-uncle platforming opus, will soon be available on your rarely-used Nintendo 3DS. If you’ve played the gravity manipulating platformer recently and thought you needed to burst into bouts of uncontrollable rage on the go, this is the perfect news for you.

For those of you, like me, who’re sick of nothing but ports and “updated classic games” on the middling handheld, this will no doubt exasperate you even further. Still, I’d be lying if I said I probably wouldn’t purchase this when it hits the eShop, so I’m pretty much part of the problem.

We’ll have more news for this later on for sure; VVVVVV¬†was perhaps my favorite indie game of 2010, and still remains in heavy play on my computer.
