Cave Story, NightSky release dates coming soon for Nintendo 3DS
Way back in April we found out that an enhanced version of Cave Story would be coming to the 3DS eShop. This new release would replace the Cave Story on DSiWare and essentially be the same (same content) as the PC version of the game, Cave Story +.
It has been a very long time since we heard anything about the re-release, in addition to that Nicalis has been promising to release NightSky on the 3DS digital store just as long.
You may have been fearing the projects were cancelled but fear no more. Nicalis stated on their twitter today that we’ll have release dates very soon. They tweeted:
“We’re just a few days from confirming a release date for Cave Story on eShop. And NightSky, too!”
Great to hear! While the eShop version of Cave Story practically invalidates the purchase of Cave Story 3D I don’t think anyone minds because it appears to be the superior version.
These games will make fine additions to the eShop’s line up of original games like Fluidity: Spin Cycle and Picross-e.
