Though not generating as much hype and excitement as some of the other holiday titles, Cave Story’s release is just around the corner. This game has gone from being a fan-made PC game to a DSi Ware title, and soon it will be fully remade using new graphics, 3D environments, and stereoscopic 3D.
I have to say, while I own and love the original, I don’t know if I’ll get the new version. A huge part of the game’s charm comes from the fact that it’s clearly based on classic run and gun 2D platformers. The graphics are intentionally dated to enhance the nostalgia feel. Still, I might pick up Cave Story 3D when my wallet gets a little thicker and I’m all through with all the other 3DS titles this holiday season.
