Downloadable version has new features, 3D effects
Whether you're an established Cave Story fan or someone wholly new to Daisuke "Pixel" Amaya's amazing exploratory platformer, there are plenty of ways to play the game at this point. Another is on the way to the Nintendo 3DS eShop, and it's making its debut on October 4.
Cave Story 3D was a graphical remake released on 3DS late last year, but this is a different version. The eShop version of Cave Story includes new features, such as true widescreen presentation and a new collection of challenge modes, and adds a 3D effect to the classic visuals.
Anyone without a 3DS can also grab the game on the DSiWare Shop sans the 3D effect. Cave Story will run you $9.99 when it drops, and those of you who have yet to experience it should definitely take the opportunity to jump on this fantastic game.
