Cave Story Coming To DSiWare

By Spencer . September 23, 2010 . 11:21pm

imageIndie game classic Cave Story is coming to another platform, thanks to Nicalis. Shortly after Nintendo Power announced Cave Story for DSiWare, Nintendo Life posted screenshots of it.


Compared to the WiiWare version, also handled by Nicalis, Cave Story for DSiWare uses the classic graphics. The bottom screen is home for a map, weapon screen, and text boxes. Nicalis added a boss rush, a time attack mode, and made Curly Brace a playable character for WiiWare. It’s unclear if those additions will be in the DSiWare release.


A release date for Cave Story on DSiWare has not been announced.

  • I really hope this version makes it to the European store, we still don’t have it on WiiWare!

    • I don’t think you have to worry. I’m pretty sure I heard that Cave Story is headed to the European Wii Shop Channel.

      • Taking it’s sweet time. I’m hoping don’t have the same sort of delay here, really sucks having digital content seperated on stores because of ratings and licencing.

        I heard the Wiiware version had several problems. Think they’ll be fixed for the european release?

        • I have no clue. I just remember reading (I think it was in Nintendo Power) that Cave Story DSiWare was on the way and Cave Story Wii was still scheduled for Europe.

          I’ve only played the PC version of the game. (Which was amazing!)

        • Were there? I was only aware it may have involved the audio somehow and not involving the gameplay.Not having played the original PC game it seemed perfectly fine to me.Anyway, last time I heard they were testing it for the release, but that was awhile ago.

            There was a bug with the new audio tracks which omits percussion. There was also an isolated freeze bug that sometimes happens on the outer wall, Nicalis is going to patch both for the American release (along with a tweaked localization, Huzzah!) and they should be fixed for the European release also.

    rar, Cave Story not only were you one of the best games I’ve ever played, but you opened my eyes to the whole world of Indie Gaming, and for that I thank you >w<~!

  • Now it’s time for a Minecraft port!

  • I will definitely be grabbing this and Little Red Riding Hood’s Zombie BBQ on the DSiWare once they’re released.
