A.N.N.E. Looks Like A Cool Mix Of Cave Story And Shoot-Em-Up

A.N.N.E. is a platformer-cum-shoot-em-up that’s a mix of Cave Story with elements of Mega Man. The title is in development for PC and Wii U (and eventually other platforms), and Nintendo have released a trailer for it at E3.



Siliconera got to go hands-on with A.N.N.E. at E3 last year, and we liked it quite a bit. You can read our hands-on impressions of the title in this post.

    Looks good.

    Here’s his latest video blog:

  • There were benchmarks for Ouya/PSN/Vita ports on the Kickstarter page for 120.000$. The WiiU was the last benchmark for 140.000$. They only received 100.000$. Something must have happened behind closed doors.

      Often projects will continue to take paypal post end-of-kickstarter and use that as ‘credit’ towards continuing the rewards. But I don’t recall receiving any news about them porting to WiiU; maybe Nintendo tossed them some cash and devkits?

      • Well there’s definitely an arrangement to release the game on the console with the higher benchmark, while it didn’t collect enough for the rest. We’re not talking about a timed exclusive like The Witness which will release after a while on iOS.

    Yeah, its time to buy a WiiU…

    *mouths fly out of wallet*


    • Silent Aaron

      This made me laugh! I imagined a lot of mini mouths with wings flying from your wallet. I think you meant moths lol.

      • Godmars

        No mouths. After eating my money they tried to eat me. Fortunately I have a shotgun in one hand and, well, during another flying mouth incident my other hand got replaced with a chainsaw.

        What I get for living atop an Indian graveyard, but the rents cheap…

        You can believe that, or either my typing has gotten worse ever since trying to actually learn how to type. My fingers just do stupid things now and again.

    Very lovely tunes

  • Cave Story meets Megaman? But, wasn’t Cave Story like “Metroid meets Mega Man”, too? How much “Mega Man” can one game be? Where’s the limit?

  • salazar547

    hope it gets a release date soon :)

  • E.T.993

    201X?Still not as long as the wait for The Last Guardian.

  • Göran Isacson

    Oh, I backed this and it’s looking like my money has gone towards something good. Not sure which format I’m gonna get it for though…

  • Aristides

    Wow that trailer was so informative about the gameplay… guess I’ll just keep looking around for gameplay footage…
