Popular Flash game VVVVVV is getting the Nintendo 3DS treatment in 2012. The puzzle platform game developed by Terry Cavanagh puts the player in the role of Captain Viridian, who must locate the members of his missing crew while trapped in an alternate dimension. The game incorporates a unique gravity switching element, which Captain Viridian can use to flip his orientation to the environment in order to traverse the complex levels.
VVVVVV's 8-bit retro look, complete with chiptune soundtrack, was heavily inspired by the Commodore 64 games during the 1980's. Nicalis, Inc. will port the game to the Nintendo 3DS platform, which will be available as an eShop download during the 1st Qtr of 2012.
