1001 Spikes' characters show their stuff in latest gameplay trailer (update)

The latest trailer for Nicalis and 8Bits Fanatics' 2D action-platformer, Aban Hawkins and the 1001 Spikes, introduces some of the playable characters in the game like Curly Brace from Cave Story and Commander Video from Bit.Trip Runner.

The game sports more than 100 stages, three save files, multiple endings and a soundtrack by music artists Misoka and Rushjet1. It also offers 18 playable characters, each with unique abilities that will affect how players approach the game's difficult levels, including characters from other games. Players have access to the single player campaign, up to four player local co-op and versus modes.

1001 Spikes is slated for launch on Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Wii U and Windows PC this summer. According to a listing on Nintendo, the Wii U version will launch June 3. We have reached out for confirmation. You can learn more about the game by checking out Polygon's interview with Nicalis founder Tyrone Rodriguez.
