VVVVVV returned to the 3DS eShop on August 24th, 2016. Apparently having been patched to negate the exploit that caused its initial delisting, the game was also on sale for a time.



VVVVVV was removed from the Nintendo 3DS eShop no later than May 2nd, 2016 by Nintendo after the game was found to be used in a new exploit. As of May 4th, 2016 it is unknown if the game may return after being updated. Cavanagh himself relayed his hopes that it wouldn’t take further work in a tweet after news broke of the delisting.

About the Game

There’s something terrible wrong in an alternate dimension! Help Captain Viridian flip to find five crew members, 20 hard-to-reach Trinkets and save a dimension on the brink of destruction. It’s a space opera in the most unique scale with a style that only VVVVVV can bring to you. Instead of jumping, control the direction of gravity by inverting your gravity and allowing Captain Viridian to flip between the floors and ceilings of the environment.

For adventurers who save the dimension, there’s still hours and hours of new gameplay with all-new Player Levels. Test your mettle and see if you have what it takes to beat a collection of levels created by other famous game developers.

Inspired by classic 8-bit days gone-by and now with experience-heightening 3D, VVVVVV will challenge even the most battle-hardened old-school gamers.
