Cave Story 3D Gets A Release Date

Category: Uncategorized

Publisher NIS America announced today that Cave Story 3D will be released in North America on August 9. Europe’s launch will follow shorty afterwards in September.

A batch of screenshots of the current build of the game are up on the NIS online store. I can’t say I like the new 3D look over the sprites of the PC/WiiWare versions, but as the images state, the game is still in development and there is plenty of time to spruce things up.

A placeholder site for the game is up. Expect to see more stuff added to it as the game gets closer to release.

AUGUST 9, 2011!

Santa Ana, Calif. – NIS America is proud to announce today the official release date for
the highly anticipated Cave Story 3D for the Nintendo 3DS™ console in North America!
The European release will follow a month after in September, 2011!
Cave Story 3D embodies the unmistakable Cave Story feel in a new 3 dimensional form.
The legendary game mechanics is now combined with cutting edge handheld graphics
and a remix soundtrack to give a new life.
“This game is inspiring. It’s been a while since I played a game where I keep craving for
more. Cave Story 3D has a mysterious charm, you will want to explore more and see
what lurks deep inside the dungeon. Just be prepared, this game will refuel your passion
towards video games once more” says Jack Niida, Producer of NIS America, Inc.
“We’re very excited to bring Cave Story to the Nintendo 3DS. Making the transition from
2D to 3D has been a challenge, but it has allowed us to further expand the Cave Story
universe envisioned by Daisuke Amaya. I think fans will have a great time with the
expanded world and characters brought to life in 3D” says Victor Rodriguez
CEO/Executive Producer of Nicalis, Inc.


Cave Story 3D is a side scrolling action adventure game inspired by the fan-favorite 2D
original. Now in a full 3D world, Cave Story takes the proven 2D action, exploration into
stereoscopic awesomeness. You wake up in a cave with no idea who you are or where
you came from, but you know you must help a cute race of rabbit-like creatures beat the
crap out of some crusty old doctor.
As you advance through the game, you’ll learn the origin of the Mimiga world and even
your own. Like the critically acclaimed Pixel masterpiece, Cave Story 3D is a combination
of high-speed shooting action scenes with heavy emphasis on platforming, exploration,
light puzzle solving as well as a deep storyline.
