Cave Story is being remade for the 3DS

No, the headline is not a typo. According to creator Daiskue “Pixel” Amaya, “Cave Story,” a 10-year-old game that has aged as gracefully as a fine wine, is currently being remade for the 3DS.

This certainly isn’t the first remake “Cave Story” has seen; its WiiWare release in 2010 featured improved graphics and character designs.


But for the 3DS, the development team at Nicalis is going back to the drawing board, basing the game off the original “Cave Story” iteration. Producer Tyrone Rodriguez said in an interview with GamesRadar, “It’s almost like a true 3D remake from scratch.”

True to its roots, the gameplay will remain 2D, but everything else will have a 3D appearance.  “The weapons are in full 3D,” Rodriguez said, “all the items, everything you see in the world has this level of depth that you’ll be able to really utilize with the 3DS’s stereoscopics.”

There is one other major difference between this remake and previous versions of “Cave Story.”  For the first time ever, “Cave Story” will be sold as a boxed retail game.

Unfortunately,  there is no official release date for “Cave Story’s” 3DS remake, but GamesRadar has the entire interview with Amaya and Rodriguez as well as comparison screenshots and character concept art.
