It’s Ikachan on a 3DS! Neat! Nicalis recently revealed plans to release the Pixel-developed underwater action adventure on both 3DS and DS, purely in the interest of preserving native display resolutions.
In other Nicalis news, here’s a Halloween parody pic posted the other day for the Cave Story sale/update:
Contrary to the wishes of two or three guys on the Internets, we’re not just going to rip through games we love just to put out sub-par versions no one is happy playing (that’ll give said trolls more reason to bitch).
I’m much happier hearing a few guys complain about our games ‘coming out in 2015-2020’, then have something out there that one of our developer friends or I’m happy to release.
Nicalis delivers real talk while also announcing a delay of Ikachan for DSiWare, until 2012.
So what’s the developer doing with the extra time? “First, the artwork is being redone from scratch by Daisuke [Pixel].” New enemies and a new, larger play area are also being added. The team is making a new localization, too, replacing the fan translation in the English PC version.
I’m sure most of us will have plenty to play for the rest of the year even without this game. Maybe not on DSiWare, but everywhere else – certainly on DS cards. This game would get super lost in holiday 2011.
