Hollywood might be a little reluctant to take a YouTube video of someone getting hit in the junk with a soccer ball and turn it into amajor motion picture, but the gaming industry tends totake more risks with cult Internet sensations. That might explain N+, a new platforming game being developed for the PSP and DS that's scheduled for release this November.
The game is based on N, which originated as a ninja-themed flash title. New to the handheld versions will be a Co-op mode, as well as a level editor. To quote Atari,%26ldquo;With full support for wireless multiplayer, cartridge sharing ability, downloadable content and community leader boards, gamers will be able to settle, once and for all, who is the greatest ninja.%26rdquo;
Of course, the part about the greatest ninjais just marketing speak. We all know that debate hasalready been settled.
