The vector drawn ninja that scooped up the indie awards after successful stints with its web-based Flash and XBLA versions is about to leap into action on the DS and PSP; thanks to a conversion by Silverbirch Studios.
We're told these latest translations will retain the classic, old-skool look and feel of the online game, and will include all the high-speed running, leaping, ninjitsu acrobatic action that made the character such a cult favourite.
Hundreds of levels will be backed up by a level editor system along with downloadable content of new level sets. There's also a brand new multiplayer feature using the two handheld system's ad-hoc wireless connectivity, which the developers promise will expand on the original gameplay.

We'll be holding our breath to see how well the DS and PSP
versions of N+ hold up to the award winning original, and you can do the same by hitting 'Track It!' right now.
