Cave Story is an acclaimed indie PC platformer created by Daisuke ‘Pixel’ Amaya and it has been ported to WiiWare and DSI with a brand new graphic scheme along with some nifty extras (There’s also a bunch of unofficial ports for systems such as the PSP). Cave Story 3DS will be less of a port and more of a fully fledged remake with the game being remade to utilise the 3DS’s capabilities. Luckily for US residents, Cave Story has been confirmed for a June 28th release date in the US. This will mark the first time the game has been released in English in retail form. There has been no UK release date confirmed so far (The DSI version hasn’t been released in the UK either) however considering the track record of localisation, the UK version of Cave Story 3DS will probably also arrive June 28th… 2015.
In case you do not know of can probably be described as the most popular indie freeware game ever made, Cave Story is a platformer in vein of the Metrodian/Megaman style in which you play an unknown creature who has dropped the surface plane to the bizzare world of the Mimigas who are being oppressed by a mad doctor as he wills for the island to be under is control. In a twitter message from Nicalis, who specialise in making UK gamers wait for YEARS for their titles to be released and as well as updating other popular indie games such as La Mulana which should be out sometime this year, He had this to say:
“We’ve gotten a lot of requests for the WiiWare version of Cave Story on Steam. Is this something you want?”
Well is it? Give Nicalis a message to support or deny this if you’re interested. A link to Nicalis’s Twitter can be found as the source to ths article.
Update: Nicalis has since posted that the title will not be coming to steam.

Cave Story has been out on WiiWare for awhile in North America. And while we have known for some time the title is in the works for Europe, we haven’t seen any indication on when that actually is.
Enter Europe’s PEGI rating system! The rating board, like many other rating boards, has revealed a listing for Cave Story. Hopefully, this is a sign that the title will appear on WiiWare some time in the next month or so.
Of course, if you can’t wait, you can always check out the PC original title, which is 100% free.
