Indie platformer Aban Hawkins and the 1001 Spikes received a new trailer today, showcasing a pretty hefty roster of new challengers. While watching the trailer, you might even notice a few familiar faces.

Developer Nicalis, Inc. (Cave Story, Night Game) will keep their indie hype train rolling by adding the following characters to 1001 Spikes when it eventually releases on Steam, Wii U, 3DS, Xbox One, PS4 and PS Vita.

  • Tina Hawkins
  • Thompson – The TEMPURA of the Dead
  • Sugimoto – The TEMPURA of the Dead
  • Zombie – The TEMPURA of the Dead
  • Commander Video – Bit.Trip series
  • Nyx – Nyx Quest
  • Juni – Knytt Stories
  • Curly Brace – Cave Story

So far we don’t have a solid release date for 1001 Spikes, but fans of the ridiculously difficult NES-era platformers should have this on their radar, especially if you’re a fan of the original Aban Hawkins and the 1000 Spikes that released on the Xbox 360 in 2011.
