Metanet, the folks behind the smash hit N+ have announced that we will be receiving yet another level pack this week. Dropping on Wednesday (October 15th), the third such pack will be available for download,
while no pricing details have been announced, I'd imagine it'll be the same price as the second DLC pack (200 space bucks).
To celebrate the third expansion, Metanet are holding a Halloween contest. For those of you getting ready to beg your neighbours for some candy, why not follow this guys lead and dress up like one of the "characters" from the game?
So I guess the question is, how many of you are still picking these packs up? and how many more can you handle?
[UPDATE] Seems my guess was waaay off (thankfully), Metanet has just update the post stating that they will be releasing this DLC pack FOR FREE!!! Looks like I'll be firing this up tomorrow after all.
In exciting news for those of you who not only made it through the "more than 400 levels" of the original as well as the 200 from the first expansion, next Wednesday will bring you even more Ninja greatness.
Word out of the developers blog/site is that on September 10th, you'll be able to grab the new expansion on the Marketplace. No word yet as to what's exactly included, or how many space bucks this is going to put you back, but I can think of a couple people for whom this news will make their weekend.

N+ is great. Luckily, the Xbox 360 community thinks the same thing as Metanet has announced that N+ has achieved the 100k in sales. It's pretty exciting considering that the game is about as difficult and frustrating as a game can get. Here's to 100k more sales for Metanet and Slick!
N+ is getting longer. If you haven't yet finished the full game, you best get cracking on that large feat as three DLC packs are on their way (one of which is free). The packs will be available soon after a title update is released this summer.
Devon Kofsky (aka DaKing240) has the XBLA skinny from GDC. How? Well, he's there. I'm not jealous. I swear.
GDC Day 1 brings news that NinjaBee's Doritos game will be light on the advertising. And thankfully, they decided to code in the fun after previous complaints. Also, Freeverse mentioned that DLC is on the way for Marathon.
And apparently the best advice for those getting stuck on levels in N+ is go and have a beer and come back later. Law willing, of course. Oh, and DLC is coming for N+ too. Without further ado, here's the N+ interview.
N+ is coming very soon. The game is done. The launch party was this week. Metanet has been telling us for sometime that the game is very, very close. The dedicated fans of the series have been trying to wrangle a release date out of the Metanet developers for a few weeks now and in the comments of this Metanet blog post they believe they have uncovered the secret (next week). Metanet can't confirm, so this is all really just a rumor. It does bring to light an interesting point about getting your game released on XBLA and when we will know about the upcoming titles as the Metanet team had the following to say:
"We can’t actually say because (a) we’re not allowed to say until 1 week before launch, and (b) in XBLA they never actually assign you a slot, basically you get stuffed in a queue, and as we’ve found out it’s a priority queue, so VIPs apparently get to cut in front "
Apparently from this weeks releases we now know that VIPs mean publishers with money and not cult indie darlings. Oh well, let's just bring on the ninjas! Thanks, of course, goes out to the commenting Ninja skills of Rusty and the other commenters.
The release of the Poker Smash achievements come on the heels of Void Star Creations confirmation of the game's release for next week. But look at what else we have here -- a bevy of unreleased games with achievements. Could these be indications of their impending releases? Just ignore the whole Discs of Tron debacle and work with me here. Okay, fine. Don't. Don't get needlessly excited for games that won't see the light of day for who knows how long. Be a party pooper.
The rest of us (those who dream big dreams and are filled with everlasting hope) will be hanging out after the break, checking out all the achievement details. But you're not invited anymore. So there. You don't get to hear about Triggerheart Exelica, Commanders: Attack!, Rocketmen: Axis of Evil, Poker Smash, or N+. I don't mention War World though...I'm afraid to jinx it.
