SANTA ANA, Calif., April 7, 2017—Game publisher and developer Nicalis, Inc. today announces the definitive version of the 2D action game Cave Story+, coming to Nintendo Switch on June 20th, 2017, both at retail and digitally via the Nintendo eShop.
Like The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ (also developed and published by Nicalis, Inc.), Cave Story+ on Nintendo Switch represents the definitive version with new challenges, gameplay options and enhancements. Switch players can also look forward to more levels and additional subtle graphic improvements, future free content updates as well as a few bonuses that are yet to be revealed.
With its striking blend of platforming action, shooting and exploration, Cave Story+ offers plenty of “twitch” for the Switch. But storytelling is a huge contributing factor to its international success. Through a series of brief and often emotional conversations with various characters, players gradually learn the tragic history of the game’s cast as well as its amnesiac adventurer, whose athletic ability and weapon skills are much more advanced than his appearance would suggest.
Developed and published by Nicalis, Inc., Cave Story+ will release on Nintendo Switch on June 20. Pricing is set at $29.99. Nicalis, Inc. is also the developer and publisher of the definitive roguelike The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ and publisher of the hyperspeed racing game Redout on Nintendo Switch. All three games will be available in physical form at retail and digitally via the Nintendo eShop in 2017.
