Cave Story eShop - review

A portion of a Nintendo Life review...

Cave Story may come from humble PC beginnings but it feels most in its element in this slick portable package. Nicalis has put together the definitive Cave Story compilation, but without any earth-shattering changes or additions it's ultimately just another way to play an all-time classic on familiar hardware. Granted, that's still a rather excellent thing, as the game is so pleasing to play that we're more than happy to delve into it yet again, and again.

A portion of a 1up review...

It's the definitive rendition of Cave Story in its primal form, a rock-solid port with no needless visual embellishments -- only a more playable (and therefore more fun) window on a mysterious world in the war-torn remains of a lost island.

A portion of an NWR review...

Even without any additions, Cave Story is still the same amazing game people have raved about for eight years. It’s one of the best 2D platformers in recent memory, and this version is worthwhile if you’ve never played it before or are itching for a reason to play it again.

Cave Story eShop, NightSky status updates

Coming from Nicalis' Twitter...

We're just a few days from confirming a release date for Cave Story on eShop. And NightSky, too!

I've been waiting so, so long to play NightSky. I'm sure you guys have as well! Let's hope we're playing these before the year closes out.

Cave Story 3D - A Kid Icarus: Uprising reference, plus prototype figurines

First up, does Kid Icarus: Uprising have a nod to Cave Story in it? Listen to this conversation between Pit and Palutena...

I don't know...seems like it works out too nicely to be a coincidence!

Also, there's a sneak peek at some Cave Story figurines on the way. So chunky...so pixelated...so gorgeous...
