Cave Story is one of my favorite little Indie games, and since it’s getting a spiffy 3DS retail modernization I find myself really wishing I had a little extra cash to throw around this holiday so I can beef up my 3DS library a bit more. Unfortunately, Super Mario 3D Land and Skyward Sword take top priority – but that doesn’t mean I can’t lovingly gaze upon Cave Story 3D from afar.

At first I wasn’t too impressed with the idea behind Cave Story 3D. The whole point of that game was to serve as a tribute to retro side-scrolling shooters like Metroid, and the pixel-art graphics were designed to reflect that. A 3DS makeover just didn’t seem to fit the spirit of the game. Now that we’re seeing it come into its final form, though, Cave Story 3D feels a lot more like Ocarina of Time 3D and Star Fox 64 3D did – an update to really do the game justice on a modern system. If you missed out on this game back in its early days or if you’re willing to let me experience it vicariously through you, Cave Story 3D hits 3DS on November 8.
