Explore A Cave Story 3D Trailer With Quote

For better or worse, Cave Story 3D has been pushed back to the holiday season. While that gives it a little more time to boil and bubble in Nicalis’ pot, it also means it’ll face competition from more first party 3DS games.


While you wait, here’s a trailer (thanks, GoNintendo) to get caught up on what it looks like right now.



Changes made to the game over the next few months will be “in the small details” according to producer, Jack Niida. NIS America rescheduled Cave Story 3D for November 8 in North America.

  • It got pushed back? Nooooooo.

    Well I hope that whatever they do, it’s amazing.

  • ehh… D:  

    I hope the 3D aspect really makes it better.  Somethings are getting lost in the 3D version. Like hidden blocks and such.

    What an utter charmless abortion. The only time I’ve seen 2.5D work as an art style in a game is in Donkey Kong Country Returns because every single part of that game is so meticulously brought to life with animation that the liveliness and dynamism of the 3D aesthetics offset what charm and character is lost by not using pixel graphics in a 2D game.

    But to take a utterly charming 2D sprite based game and replace the graphics with budget 3D graphics, ugh.

    This is going to be the game that makes me buy a 3DS.

    I’m just hoping that Nintendo will maybe have a price drop for the holiday season. Or at least a greater variety of colors to choose from. =)

    This game has the visuals of a launch psp game.  Too bad really; I have a feeling it won’t do so well.

    No boss fight teases? D:

  • For some reason I think even if they went for a 2D remake (or use the Prinny graphical style) it would still get bashed.   The graphics of the original was that awesome.

    Anyways, some areas could look better but other areas look okay, and  the action seems solid still.  I’ll bite when I get a 3DS.

    the only thing that could justify me buying this game would be a playable prinny, or having one as an extra boss. And maybe some cameos from disgaea characters, or a bonus scenario………..

    On the bright side, at least the newer graphics will give a new perspective on the world Pixel has created =D
