Rock-hard indie VVVVVV coming to 3DS

Notoriously difficult indie platformer VVVVV is coming to a platform you could conceivably break in a temper tantrum.

Eurogamer reports the Nicalis published title, which gets its name from the V-like spikes covering most surfaces, will be available on the 3DS e-Shop some time this year.

No pricing has been set yet, but the 3DS version of Captain Viridian’s adventures will sport six new levels and a map on the second screen, as well as the obligatory 3D effects.

Nicalis has said extra content will release post-launch, too.

Despite its rage-inducing trickiness, VVVVVV was hailed as one of the best indie releases of last year. It’s available on PC for $5.
