Fans of Shovel Knight will have plenty to love with A Hole New World when it releases for Xbox One & Steam on May 19th. PS4 owners will have to wait until summer to give it a go. “A Hole New World is not a remaster, but a new classic with NES aesthetics and a new fantastic point of view.” Its going to take a bit of an adjustment period jumping down holes, typically you die, but this game turns that mechanic on its head (literally). You can check out the excellent trailer below.
Mad Gear Games announced today that the first 3 people to contact them after they’ve unlocked all achievements (Xbox One) or trophies (PS4) will get one of the super limited NES cartridges that will run on actual consoles and includes the game’s soundtrack.
Fans of 2D platforming should definitely keep an eye out for this one. We don’t get enough of these great NES style games so show your support when it launches. I know I will. – NVJ
