- if it does, it will be before Christmas

Aban Hawkins and the 1,001 Spikes

- +12 playable characters in multi-player Vs. mode
- this includes Aban, his sister, his father, Commander Video from the Bit.Trip series, characters from Tempura of the Dead, and many more
- new multi-player mode where players compete to climb a tower and "save a maiden"
- on track for release in 2013
- release has been delayed by the fact that Nicalis keeps adding new content


- Nicalis is helping to make adjustments to the game to take advantage of the 3DS hardware
- this includes altering the backgrounds to optimize them for a 3D display
- may have online multi-player
- this is only if they can get the game running with minimal lag and without other performance issues
- Local multi-player lobbies are also a possibility
