    Sandzone screenshots.

    Releasing at a earlier time would help (They still have October.),but what I think is going to hurt sells most is the fact people are going
    to hear the name and annoy all the new content.

    It's silly.

    They wanted to delay CS because of poor sales of the console

    Now they worry because CS clashes with other top hits?

    I was looking forward to this, one of the key reasons why I haven't touched other versions of cave story yet.

    They should have still released it. It's not like it would disappear after a few months, people could still buy it now.

    I tried many version of Cave Story and it never gave me a good impression. This shou'd have be a 3DSWare.

    I'd buy it... but only if it also had 2D version on it, and mainly just to support the series. I fear that this 3D makeover will be pretty bad :(

    The problem with that is that retailers will not devote shelf space to a product that isn't selling. So if it came out then, and tanked, it would head straight for the bargain bin. Once a game goes bargain bin, retailers will not re-order it, and that spells the end of NIS' revenue stream from that product.

    The graphics look pretty nice. I think that Pixel said himself once that he wanted it to be in 3D, so this might actually work out pretty well (don't quote me on that, I heard it from a random person on the internet). It should also have a "Paper Mode" which will let you play using the original sprites, so that might be what you're looking for :). I'm really looking forward to this! I might just get it release day.

    Oh no! A remake of a game that has been ported and milked to death will fail!


    Honestly, I would care if:

    1: If it was a sequel

    2: If the new art style didn't suck ass and used either toon shading or voxels instead.

    But now I just can't gather up the emotion to care.

    Is it still set for the November 8th release date or do I have to wait longer?

    I like the new Sand Zone. I really wonder what the Balcony and the Outer Wall looks like.

    Uggh, the Sand Zone looks like crap, although I'm probably just saying this with my nostalgia goggles on and should go replay the original. Overall I don't like the art direction shown there, at all, instantly looking at it I know playing that I would not have the same atmosphere and experience or even close to it that I had with Cave Story the first time around, or the 3 times I replayed it on PC. Although I suppose 3D remakes of 2D games are always crap which leads me to wonder why they bothered, 3D is for 3D platformers, 2D is for 2D platformers, there are some wonderful exceptions, but I've never seen a game that started in 2D actually look better or as good when converted to 3D graphics but keeping the same gameplay/level layout.

    Some of the area's of Plantation look a bit different. I love the new look of Last Cave. Now they need to show Balcony and Wind Fortress.

    Voxels are sweet in theory and small games. They look amazing too. The problem is that they take up TONS of storage space, even if they render instantly.
