Cave Story on 3DS Pushed Back Again
First Cave Story 3D was pushed out of June and into August, and now it’s been delayed once again. NIS America today announced the game is set to launch on November 8, not on August 9, as previously planned. This is “due to additional game improvements,” a press release states.
“We are currently undergoing improvements to enhance gameplay,” said NIS producer Jack Niida. “Changes are in the small details, but in order to satisfy both the fans and the new players we need to make sure the game is done right. Please look forward to it this holiday season. Cave Story 3D will be a blast.”
Despite not being a completely original title, Cave Story 3D has been one of the most anticipated games on 3DS. The original started out as a free PC game released in 2004 by Daisuke Amaya (who spoke at GDC about pragmatic game design). Since then it’s been ported to both WiiWare and DSiWare, the latter of which has been available on 3DS since the eShop launched earlier this month. The new, 3DS-specific version adds the obligatory 3D support and is a remake rather than a straight port. It will also be the first time the game is made available at retail.
