Nicalis just can't help themselves when it comes to teasing Switch games. Again, I think this is going to be more of a case of when, rather than if.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but won't this be the first physical release this game has ever gotten?
There was a graphical remake for 3DS, I think.
Yeah the 3DS got a remake that opted for a 2.5D look, the graphics were considered a real mixed bag compared to the pixel art seen in the other Nicalis remakes (which used pixel art that was like a 16-bit upgrade of the original faux 8-bit graphics from the old freeware version).
I get the feeling the Switch version will be based more off of Cave Story+, which is basically an enhanced PC version of the Wiiware remake.
I wonder if it's going to be another 3D remake? I know people like the original version, but the 3DS version absolutely clicked with me, it's the exact kind of style I love, kind of this empty, distant kind of style, which creates it's own unique atmosphere, which Mario 64 had also, and there was a thread on reddit exactly about this kind of graphical style just recently, and there are some people who share the same view with me.
The 3DS having stereoscopic 3D was what motivated the making of that specific version. Too many people were discontent with it I'm afraid for them to make another version like that, especially on the Switch that doesn't have stereoscopic 3D. No one would know for sure of course, but I don't think they'd catter to the minority of people who prefered the 3D version, for a system that doesn't have the feature that motivated its making in the first place.
Keep them coming Nicalis and I'll buy them! Binding of Isaac is the game I'm getting at launch with breath of the wild. ( these box arts are beautiful, 1001 spikes and now this)
Freaking gorgeous boxart. But alas. I don't enjoy double dipping unless a game has extra content or it is a from-the-ground-up remake.
I have played this game on waay too many systems now. So, I might skip. That boxart looks nice, though.
why does official artwork of quote frequently have him wearing gloves but his sprite does not
Maybe he is meant to have gloves, but it would cause confusion in sprite form?
I can see that to be the reason. I am colorblind, but the gloves are the same color as the pants, right? They would blend together too much.
I'm sure most Nintendo fans here know this already, but this is actually the reason Mario got his overalls
"Maybe he is meant to have gloves, but it would cause confusion in sprite form?"
Then why all the official art of him not wearing gloves?
I bet this will never come to Europe. I hate you Nicalis.
