Reader Radical Defect emails in with this screenshot and a bit of information. Apparently he's having quite a bit of trouble playing the Curly Story mode in Cave Story eShop. The game seems to glitch out, making progress impossible. We've reached out to Nicalis for comment. Anyone else out there experiencing this?
If you own a 3DS, and haven't played Cave Story before (and even if you have), do yourself a favor and download this game right away. You'll thank me. From beginning to end it's an enjoyable, intriguing, and challenging adventure, worthy of any gamer's time.
Just as Nicalis said awhile back, the DSiWare, version of Cave Story has been removed from the 3D eShop. While you'll still be able to purchase that version on an actual DSi, the 3DS eShop will only show Cave Story eShop. That version of the game is due out tomorrow.
Minor complaints aside, it’s great to see an enhanced version of Cave Story available on eShop. The stereoscopic 3D adds a little depth, which is nice, and the game controls as wonderfully as ever. But once again, choosing the best version depends on personal preference.
