Cave Story

an indie classic is coming to WiiWare!





Doukutsu Monogatari, or as we know it, Cave Story, is a freeware action/adventure game released in 2004. developed independently over a period of five years by Japanese artist Pixel (Daisuke Amaya), it is widely regarded as one of the best sidescrollers of all time, despite it's humble origins and being released a decade after the pinnacle of its genre.

now it's being ported to WiiWare by Nicalis. new features include enhanced graphics and sound, art galleries, and DLC. they are working closely with Pixel to honor the original as best as possible.


it really is an awesome game, with cool weapons, fun characters, memorable music, and an involving story. if you like games like Metroid, Mega Man, Castlevania, Contra, or just action sidescrollers in general, you should eat this up. (though everyone should play it)

I hate bringing up a dead topic, but I am really excited for this game. I've been following it for months, and it's shaping up nicely. I just wish it was released already!

Has anyone heard any rumors of a release date?

Well, I've heard that it was supposed to be out in June a while back, but since that's not the case... But the manual was submitted for approval a week back; it's taking so long to complete because of translation. http://gonintendo.com/viewstory.php?id=92521

I heard June, too, but it was a lie. I am sad.
