NIS America Didn’t Bring Cave Story 3D To E3, But We Have Another Look At It

GrassIf you logged on to the Nintendo eShop you may have noticed Cave Story, the DSiWare version, is the staff pick of the week. Well, at least in North America. Cave Story 3D is a 3D remake of the game from Nicalis and NIS America.


In addition to 3D models, Nicalis plans on adding extra levels from the Cave Story beta and bonus music tracks. So, it’ll be a Cave Story remix, perhaps. I wanted to play Cave Story 3D (again) at E3, but NIS America’s space (inside the Tecmo Koei booth) only had Atelier Totori.


We do have an update about Quote’s 3D transformation, though! NIS America sent us a new batch of screenshots from the Lab and Sand Zone.

Cave Story 3D is slated for August 9 in North America.

  • This is cool and the extras are good, but I think the original looked nicer.

    • This was one of those games that really didn’t need a graphical upgrade. It already looked great. I’m not too fond of the updated visuals.

    the original has its own charm, but this is fine too i guess :P still, can’t beat the nostalgia for pixels imo

    There was a trailer played during the Nintendo conference- it looks pretty good in motion! Still, I don’t regret picking up the DSiWare port instead of waiting for the 3D remix.

    I’m inclined to buy to support awesomeness.
