Impaling Nintendo platform users next Tuesday

A June 3 release date for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and Steam versions of 1001 Spikes was announced this past Wednesday. The good news is that the Wii U and 3DS versions will now be releasing alongside the aforementioned consoles.

The delayed announcement was due to Nicalis being in the process of finalizing a loyalty discount for Nintendo 3DS players who already own any Nicalis titles to get $5 dollars off 1001 Spikes\’ set price of $14.99. So if you already own VVVVVV, NightSky, Cave Story, Ikachan or Grinsia, then 1001 Spikes will only cost $9.99.

Additionally, at the eleventh hour a few issues were discovered in the game which left the developers with two options. One being to push back the release date on Nintendo consoles or put it out as is with those issues.

\”Nintendo has assured us that an update could be issued within a couple of days of release to knock out those bugs,\” Gail Salamanca said in a press release. \”Ultimately, we chose the latter because our fans want to play the game and we don\’t plan to leave our Nintendo fans behind on a game they\’ve been patiently waiting for.\”

Game Premise: Discover the lost treasures of Ukampa in South America as Aban Hawkins searches for his estranged father, world-famous archaeologist Jim Hawkins. Before the elder Hawkins mysteriously disappeared, he entrusted his daughter Tina with a map to the location of the ruins with a grave warning that death awaits around every corner.
