BE41GMACUAAS0xbDaisuke Amaya, the creator of Cave Story, has been working on a side scrolling game where you play as a pixilated frog who shoots through levels after his cat girlfriend is captured by aliens. Gero Blaster was revealed at BitSummit with a trailer and announced as an iOS title.


Tyrone Rodriguez from Nicalis teased that Gero Blaster was also in development for Nintendo 3DS and tweeted a photo of the game running on a 3DS XL.


Nicalis also released Studio Pixel’s other titles like Cave Story and Ikachan as downloadable games for WiiWare and 3DS.

    Apparently the creator also sees it coming to ps vita.

    I do love me some pixelblasting, but I just hope you can play it with the D-pad, not just those weird buttons on the screen (a preview for a smart-phone version, perhaps?) Also, hope you can play as the girlfriend once she’s rescued, hopefully?


    Thank the gaming gods that it will see release on a platform I actually want to play games on.

    Can’t they do a physical release? If they think physical media is too large a risk why not do a pre-order only limited run premium release. That way they get their manufacturing costs upfront.

    What more, they could include Cave Story, the original untouched version, and make it a Pixel double pack.

    Looks like unlike 2011 and 2012 I’ll actually be buying a single release made in the last decade or so.
