Cave Story getting 3DS remake, full 3D revamp

Cave Story on WiiWare? That was just a warm-up.

GamesRadar got the full scoop on Daisuke “Pixel” Amaya and NIS America’s Cave Story overhaul to end all Cave Story overhauls. This time, the little indie platformer that could is leaping out of its retro-inspired coat and straight into the third dimension.

“The difference between the original Cave Story and Cave Story 3D is going to be the environments are going to be in full 3D, but we will keep the original style of the game, which is a 2D scrolling action game,” Amaya said.

“Primarily, this is based off of the original game. In a way, it’s almost like a true 3D remake from scratch,” added producer/music director Tyrone Rodriguez. “So we’ve added a couple of things that Daisuke and I have gone over, as far as some secrets and some Easter eggs that are going to make some of the original fans really happy, and it’ll also add some longevity for the game for anybody who’s playing it, and sees these grand new areas that we’re adding, as well.”

This is something we can definitely get behind. Just, uh, maybe call it quits after you’re finished. If Cave Story gets a threemake with Kinect controls and mid-level Angry Birds-style slingshot minigames, we’ll lose all faith in the world and actually go live in a cave.
