    'VVVVVV' out for 3DS in Europe next week, 'La-Mulana' for Wii canceled


    Nicalis has announced plans to release Cave Story and VVVVVV for 3DS in Europe soon, as well as the cancelation of La-Mulana in Europe and North America.

    Indie publisher Nicalis has shared some information about upcoming releases on Twitter, and there's both good and bad news. We'll get the bad out of the way first: La-Mulana for WiiWare has been canceled in North America and Europe, with Nicalis producer Tyrone Rodriguez telling GoNintendo that sales on the download service are "almost non-existent." This isn't entirely surprising to us, especially when the game in question is a torturously difficult Japanese 2D platformer, but after a long development period it's a shame we won't get to see the Wii release. At least the PC version is freeware.

    On a more positive note, Nicalis announced that Terry Cavanagh's VVVVVV will make it onto the 3DS eShop in Europe on May 10th. The excellent gravity-flipping puzzle-platformer came out for PC and Mac over two years ago and was released on the North American eShop last December. Europeans will also be able to get their hands on two versions of Cave Story "soon," with the classic indie action-adventure seeing release both on DSiWare and as a full retail 3DS remake — both of which came out in the US last year.
