UPDATE #1: In Europe, the game will be called Splash or Crash, and comes out Feb. 28.

UPDATE #2: Added screens to the bottom of the OP.

Searched but saw no dedicated thread, which didn't surprise me. Game looks awesome, though! 'Twas revealed in yesterday's Nintendo Direct -- no mention of who's making it (that I recall), but it's hitting the eShop March 7.

OFFICIAL TRAILER HERE.



The name reminds me of Salvatore from Wind Waker, and also suggests the sound of freshly voided feces falling into the toilet. Through rigorous scientific analysis, I've concluded the game will have a similar good poopy feeling.

You play as a stone (or any number of round objects, like a watermelon, or a nesting doll, or hopefully actual feces), plummeting down a well, one filled with obstacles like crisscrossing planks, or pizza slices that magically emerge from the walls.

It looks fun to me because it reminds me of the squirrel-suit mission in Pilotwings Resort. If so, the use of 3D should be superb, for a dizzying sense of depth and speed. Also reminds me a bit of the unfortunately named base-jumping game, AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! -- A Reckless Disregard for Gravity.

I'm probably the only one interested, but it seems like a fast, fun game well-suited to the system's strengths. :)

Some screens -- thanks Kazerei:

Depending on the price/impressions, I'll be picking this up. I'd like to know who's developing it.

I also thought of AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! when it was announced.

Not familiar with Poisoft. What other games have they developed? And how was Hiyu Stone received?

The European name is different, right? That should probably be in the title/OP.

EDIT: beaten handily.
I put an update at the top of the OP with the European name and launch date.

I am most eager to throw shit down a well. Honestly the third most interesting ND announcement to me, after DKCR3D and Mario & Luigi: Dream Team.

Thanks for sharing this. Interesting Poisoft's last game was a title where you play as the king in a 16-bit RPG, and it looked like this:



And now they're making a full 3D falling-down-a-well simulator. Fuck if I know what they'll make next, lol.
A game where you play as a king falling down a well.

That is a whole hell of a lot of purple in one screenshot.

Would be sweet if there was a mind-blowing plot twist where it turns out you were gravity all along.

I think it looks pretty fun. Hope it's reasonably priced.

What is it with Nintendo eShop titles and their different names in NA and EU? Pullblox, Birds 'n' Bombs, this. We share a language, I'm pretty sure I can comprehend the title Spotto.

I think I'll just use my eShop monies on Fire Emblem DLC and HarmoKnight. Sweet, sweet HarmoKnight.

So glad to see these screens with the controls on the 2nd screen, as I was afraid after the vid that they would make this tilt control which I would have no interest in.

Slippery slope. Reggie knows that if we recognize the shared roots of our language, the wily Europeans will take over, and before you know it, you'll be playing games like "Pip, pip, cheerio!" and "Sacre bleu!" and "Prisa prisa mis pantalones están en llamas."

Bottom screen and menus look super weak. This seems like a fun game if priced right, or eventually put on sale.
Yeah, it's like they repurposed leftover props from Excitebots. Adds to the kitschy charm, imo.

Holy crap! Today's real megaton is that more than two people can have the same first name.

I'm sure there's more to it but the game looks kinda like Ketzal's Corridors: Circular Edition.

I thought it reminded me something.
Panic mode Nintendo, we need more games/profit because Iwata on ejection seat :p
Another plot twist might be when it's revealed you were playing as Nintendo's quarterly profits.

What this game should have been in the first place.
And then you reach the hollow center of the earth and slingshot back up the well due to reverse gravity, screaming "ASCENSIONNNNNNNNNN!" as you rocket back to your kingdom.

(I'm having too much fun inventing plot.)
