Atari announces that
development for the award-winning N+ for the Nintendo DS and the PSP
(PlayStation Portable) system is complete! The successor to the beloved
flash ninja game N, N+ is soon becoming the gold standard of ninja
action-platform gaming. Created by Metanet and developed by SilverBirch
Studios, N+, named "Best in Show" for PSP system from Gaming Excellence and
"Best Handheld" from Blast Magazine at 2008's E3, is rated E for Everyone
and will be available on August 26 in North America for the suggested
retail price of $19.99.
"N+ has taken its amazing acrobatics and simple-but-fast gameplay and
has clearly become a standout hit, winning top award recognition at this
year's E3," said David Geudelekian, Producer, Atari, Inc. "With an
impressive set of new features including wireless multiplayer, downloadable
content and over 200 levels exclusive to each version, gamers will be able
to settle, once and for all, who is the greatest ninja."
N+ offers equal parts platformer and action gameplay with incredibly
fluid animation, fast action, amazing acrobatics and instant playability.
N+ embodies the same brisk pick-up-and-play style that has endeared gamers
worldwide and improves on the adored flash game with downloadable content,
multiplayer components and a built-in level editor.
New impressive features like cooperative and competitive multiplayer
modes and level sharing over the ad-hoc PSP system and wireless Nintendo DS
connections will expand upon the gameplay possibilities that have made the
original flash game a sensation. Complimenting the game's 'old-school'
feel, the control layout uses directional buttons and one of the face
buttons to jump and move. With the built-in level editor, players can use
the stylus to design maps and share them with friends or the world and
downloadable content will continue to add exciting elements long after the
game's initial release.
