n run

Metanet Software made an appearance at the Penny Arcade Expo last week with N+, demoing the XBox 360 version of the game. The DS/PSP versions, which are being produced by Atari, were also available. In their latest blog post, the intrepid duo lament the absence of online attention for the 360 version, since it’s the one they’re working on directly:

The handheld versions should of course be great — there aren’t very many good platformers available on DS/PSP, these days the only decent platformers seem to be coming from freeware developers — but we really feel like the XBLA version is much more ours.

I don’t think you can go wrong with either, but I’m personally amped for N+ 360! For the skinny on the DS version, however, Joystiq has a hands-on.

N temporary tattoos in the extended. Including Mare, and ninjas leaping from butt cracks (not in the same photo).

    we _are_ trying to do as much as we can with the atari versions, and the producer is great in terms of listening to us.. we just wish that people knew the XBLA version exists!

  • Dan MacDonald

    I’ll buy it on XBLA the day it comes out :) I might even get the DS version, as you say, there aren’t a lot of good platfomers on the DS.

    I edited the post a bit. The wording in the original was pretty off. :|

    HOLY CRAP so is that what the new ninja looks like with the wavy headband and belt? SWEEEEEEET!!!!!!!!

  • Skyleak

    I might have just drank a lot but the ninjas looks like pixelated palm trees

  • raigan

    you’re sober — mare has in fact been told “nice palm tree” at least once!

  • Shawn

    Palm Tree!
    When I was wearing it I got the same thing a couple times! I didn’t even see it until someone pointed it out =(

  • Joseph

    So thats what the ninja is going to look like in-game right? With the head band and belt?

  • Dave

    Who is “Mare”? I’d put her on a rope and give her a walk around the paddock, if you know what I mean.
