First off, the new IGN blog post is up. This week, we take a look at N+ XBLA and provide some helpful tips and stuff. Check it out here!
There are two crazy important things to note in this post. First, people have been getting this wrong all over the internet, and it’s time the record was set straight:
N+ for Xbox 360 LIVE! Arcade was developed by Slick Entertainment and published by Metanet Software.
N+ for DS and PSP was developed by Silverbirch Studios, published by Atari, and licensed by Metanet Software.
Metanet also provided all level design for N+ XBLA and Single Player level design for N+ DS/PSP (and acted as Consultants), but you already knew that 😉
and second, yes, Metanet Software’s official Xbox360 Gamertag is “w00tteen74”.. it’s a long story 😉
Early reports of N+ downloads are amazingly good — we’re so thrilled that players worldwide have been giving N+ a chance. It was our main goal to get N+ to a new audience, and so far it seems to be going well! Thank you, Xbox360 gamers everywhere, for playing N+. You rock!
We apologize for 14-4, Master Control. Don’t hate us! But isn’t it incredibly rewarding when you finally beat it?
We’ll be releasing new level packs shortly, containing brand new levels for both Single and Multiplayer, some classic levels from the original N, and a whole bunch of new ninja-related goodies for you to enjoy. Look for those soon!
We’re really happy with how N+ XBLA turned out.. so far the only disappointment has been our total lack of #1s on the leaderboards. We’re still trying though!
