Nicalis, publisher of the WiiWare version of Cave Story and Cave Story+, announced that it will release a remake of 8bits fanatics' "hardest extremest craziest platform adventure" Aban Hawkins & The 1000 Spikes for the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo's upcoming Wii U console.

Known for its brutal difficulty and multitude of surprise deaths, Aban Hawkins & The 1000 Spikes will feature enhanced graphics, remixed music, and a local multiplayer mode when it arrives for Nintendo's platforms with the new title 1,001 Spikes.

1,001 Spikes will premiere as a downloadable 3DSWare title later this year. The Wii U version is set for release upon the console's launch date, which has yet to be announced.
