Nintendo World Report recently had a chat with Tyrone Rodriguez from Nicalis, the developers of Cave Story, about their handling of the 3DS port of Terry Cavanagh's VVVVVV. Rodriguez revealed that the portable version of the challenging indie game could feature leaderboards and a level editor, but only if it's well-received on the 3DS.
"It's depends on the players," he said. "We're considering online leaderboards and other things. If they download the game and they play it and they enjoy it and want to keep playing it, then we'll be happy to support it for the long term.
"It's a big investment for the player to make a level. Sometimes people load up the level editor and never use it or just make a level with one room. It's a lot of work on our end to make it work, to test it and debug it."
The 3DS version can already load levels created by users on the PC, and it comes with several—including one by Minecraft creator Notch, according to Pocket Gamer. Are you planning on picking this up on the 3DS when it releases some time soon, or did you get your fill of gravity-defying punishment on PC or Mac already? Would you use the level editor on 3DS?
