Cave Story 3D Slides To November

FirstCaveIt started out as a launch window game, but Cave Story 3D is now a holiday season title. NIS America pushed Quote’s journey into the third dimension back to November 8. NIS America will use the extra time to improve the game.


“We are currently undergoing improvements to enhance gameplay," said Jack Niida, Producer. "Changes are in the small details, but in order to satisfy both the fans and the new players we need to make sure the game is done right. Please look forward to it this holiday season."


"I learned a lot after releasing Cave Story for DSiWare and WiiWare. There were a lot of positive comments, but there were other people who didn’t like the graphic style. I thought [Cave Story 3D] was a chance to go from 2D to 3D for new players," Daisuke "Pixel" Amaya said in a Siliconera interview. I played a very early build of Cave Story 3D afterward and it the first cave felt just like Cave Story with a 2.5D perspective. Cave Story 3D was not shown at E3.


The latest batch of screenshots shows the Lab, Egg Corridor, and Sand Zone.

    I’d rather have a delayed, glitch-free higher quality game than a rushed out half-assed release/port.

  • Yes please, it really needed more visual polish.

  • Arcm

    Well, that’s okay that leaves more money for all the other games that come out in between now and November.

    I just hope the NISA Store updates soon with the ability to preorder some of their games like Bleach, D4, or Atelier.

    November… so, admist all the other big name releases of the year? Ok… hopefully there won’t be any important 3DS game (but if any Mario gets released on November, that won’t be good).

    • Mario Kart, Super Mario 3DS are both coming this holiday I thought?

    • kylehyde

      Sonic Generations and MGS: snake eater 3D on november and Mario Kart 3DS, Super Mario 3DS and Kid Icarus on Holiday so I think that things could be kinda difficult for this title.

  • Another pushback.  Didn’t we already have issues with the initial launch title on the Wii?  Now this?

    Call me apprehensive, but…

  • I really hope they put the 2D on this aswell, it would be an instant buy for me then. We didn’t get a portable Cave Story 2D in Europe, so I’m really hoping this gives us a chance to experience it on the go in it’s original form.
