Its everything you ever wanted out of a N+ sequel.

But personally... there are too many levels. I burned out on the game. All the levels I played were great, but there is something to be said for a more curated experience. The game is also hard as balls if your going for record times.

On the stat screen there is now a section that show how many times you got killed by which enemy. I don't think that was there before.

Yeah, I thought I saw it was 1.05.

Patch notes: Important and Fun. :)

The patch fixes the bug where the gold badges weren't showing/registering. Some additional info are added in the stats section, totaling up more types of accomplishments. There's also some kind of save recovery function.

Nah man, it just means you can keep coming back for more. More levels you haven't gotten to yet, and more challenges (secret exits).

Hi there,

so the new patch fixes the gold-badge-issue!? So I can continue playing? Fine.

One thing that bothers me a little is a post from a PSN-Friend:
He said (after the newest patch) that in X-18 for example, he dies what seems random to him, for no obvious reason.
It happened in hardcore Levels with ninja-doubles ...

I have not played any "X-Levels". Could it be maybe he is missing something that is intenionally happening in these hardcore-levels?

bye

hey everyone,
I'm afraid that the patch has a bug: in certain situations some of the evil ninjas are invisible, making a few levels impossible.

We've already figured out what the problem is, so it should be patched soon (sadly it seems to take us 1-2 weeks to actually get through cert without issues though).

I'm really sorry about this "fix a bug, create a new bug" pattern that all of our patches suffer from. It's really embarrassing! :/

The good news: we've found a new programmer, and they've been working on porting N++ to Steam for the past month or so. There are still a few more months of work -- we want to add all of the planned post-launch-update stuff that got put on hold when our team imploded -- but we will definitely be bringing N++ to Steam. We're still looking at other platforms too.

Anyway, thanks for your continued support... and please keep letting us know if you find any new bugs.

Also: we added a partial progress recovery function, press Triangle when in the Profile menu to recover progress that you may have lost due to the save-file corruption bug.

This uses info on the highscore server to determine which episodes you've beaten; sadly it can't recover all-gold badges/etc since they're only stored locally.

Hopefully this helps a bit. We're both really sorry that that bug ever existed, and that it took months for us to get a fix out... I'm glad that's finally over, but it was really awful and I apologize on behalf of Metanet.

Cheers,
Raigan

Excellent news on the Steam version being in the works as well as there being a save game band-aid.

I haven't played this in so long. First I was worried about losing my save file. Then I was worried about losing progress. Now I'm worried about impossible levels =(

The meta game challenge is off the charts. Next patch will need to step it up and melt the controller if you fail.

It was my first PSN game on PS4 and I LOVED it!
N (flash version) was one of my most played games all time and N++ is better than that in every way. it has LOTS of levels and unlockables, lots of fantastic colors and themes and its one of most addictive games of this gen. you should play it without a doubt!

Wait, there is another patch? I got 1.04 yesterday when starting the game and had the gold badge bug. Guess I need to tell the ps4 to search for another patch.

Exit: 1.05 still bugged for gold badges. How can something so simple be screwed up?

I was playing Episode X-04 Level 4 and the game just froze suddenly. Had to do a hard reboot of the ps4 and was greeted by that screen when I launched n++ again.

I tried the save recovery function, but it didn't work (couldn't connect to the server, which is strange because I could access the global highscores just fine)
Really hope it will work the next time I try, I definitely won't replay all those stages to unlock the X-Episodes.
