At one point, it wasn't looking good for "N+" on the PSP and DS. Not in the eyes of the Metanet Software, developers of the original game, anyway.
"Currently it's not working – it's not the game we wanted to make," said Metanet's Mare Sheppard to Edge in May. "There are a lot of changes we haven't been so happy with."
Those changes appear to have been made. "N+" arrives on PSP and DS next week, and Metanet told MTV Multiplayer the handheld versions from Atari have come a long way.
