They screwed the solo indie dev of Cave Story. Not sure what else they've been up to.

Since they killed 90’s Arcade Racer once they picked it up, yeah they do.

WOW, so i hadn't heard this story. Looked it up, found the trailer, 6th or 7th comment from 8 years ago:

"Man, oh man! I need to get a Wii U so bad so I can play this game. I'm a HUGE fan of Nicalis. I wish I can work for them."

Wow did this not turn out the way that guy thought it would.

What a bummer this never got released.

/edit: it might still exist, there are articles and references to it being renamed 90s Super GT (or GP?) and still being in production as recently as May 2020

There hasn’t been news on it in years. I think Nicalis keeps it on their page to make their portfolio seem big when in reality they are a crap publisher that picked up a couple hits. The developer has long since moved on.

Makes sense now that the game is complete and they've gotten most of the sales they'll get for it on Steam.
