Cave Story + will be coming to the Nintendo 3DS eShop Soon

Posted by TurtleGirl On May - 1 - 2012

Cave Story + will be coming to the Nintendo 3DS eShop next month or so. Tyrone Rodriguez (Janitor of Nicalis) announced the upcoming release of Cave Story+ on the eShop. He begins with a mixture of good and bad news.

Even if you purchased the prior version of the game on the DSiWare shop, you’ll have to pick it up again if you want this enhanced, remade, 3D version
 

So, it won’t be a free update, unfortunately. I fought really hard to try to get it to be just a ’simple’ update; I feel that Nintendo wanted the same thing too, but the logistics behind it are pretty huge. The good thing is that if you already bought the DSiWare version on your 3DS and ever delete it, you’ll still be able to download it. The update won’t stop you from playing the prior version of the game.
 

The other bit of bad news is that eShop version of Cave Story+ “can’t do the Steam version’s art or music, the former because of resolution, the latter because the file size would get massive.” That’s sort of a bummer, but not a huge deal. The HD sprites wouldn’t look that different from the original graphics on the 3DS’ small screen anyway. Having the original Cave Story sprites in 3D will be exciting enough. As for the soundtrack, the original sounds are timeless. No complaints about getting to hear them again.”
