    I scoured the internet and only found a few sentences that were relevent but dated. I gatherd that pixel was making it with some other folk, can anyone expand on this?

    Pixel was never making a ds version. That was a separate project by some guy over at the doukutsu LJ. (And I think it's dead.)
    Also. the Wii version looks horrible, they shouldn't have touched the sprites.

    The PSP port (although unofficial) has been out for ages, and works like a charm. So long as you can run homebrew, that is.

    That's sad to hear, I held off playing Cave Story because I was waiting for the DS version. Now I just have to suck it up and play it on PC.

    And now to go scour the internet again but for a decent controller. It would make playing other pc games a lot more fun aswell

    was searching around and just saw that he actually had a post on his blog in 07 sounding like he has long given up on it... and also a few entries before that stating how he ran into problems understanding what pixel coded even with the source [​IMG]

    seems like CS:DS won't become a reality, at least not from ravenworks... i wonder if any other teams would decide to take over the port...

    oh the agony [​IMG]
