    They also speak about the game but most people only care about the footage.

    Video


    To be honest, I'm not liking what I see. Cave Story was good as it was, I don't even like the style now.

    Well that interview was far from enlightening.
    They didn't sell the game at all, why play the 3D version when all the gameplay described can be freely played on PC or bought on WiiWare right now?

    The visuals just don't really capture the environments very well, they're just converting pixels to polygons and not giving it much more consideration beyond that.
    Sprite behaviour doesn't translate to models very well.

    Still it's clear that the game is still unfinished, Quote uses an old sprite when teleporting, some of the bushland enemies seem to lack animation, etc.

    But one of the biggest offences here is that they have completely failed to detail the games story, the enchanting tale of the Mimiga's plight against the Doctor, and the involvement of the Sakamoto family. The video footage didn't show off anything resembling character interaction or dialogue, pretty disappointing.

    I also gotta say, Arthur's house was pretty shabby.

    Doesn't look done, but what wrong with the style or environment?

    There are a bunch environments add-on that wasn't there and including depth.

    If they just convert them, those things wouldn't be there I believe. (depth and add-on on the environment.)

    Am I the only one not disappointed by the visuals?

    But yeah, that movement is weird.

    I think it would be fun to play, and see how everything has changed, but I don't think I'd buy it unless I could get it really cheap. I already paid $10 for the DSiWare version which I'll be able to play on my 3DS. Even if they add a new area or something, I don't think it's worth it.

    This video restored the faith in Cave Story 3D for me. I was disappointed by the earlier screenshots. But seeing more of it and in motion, I think it's cool. Especially the fast action shooting at enemies is very well done.

    So even if some don't consider it a visual master piece, I am again considering buying this when it comes out.

    Besides he said something about a surprise for fans of the classic Cave Story... :)

    tbh Where they are trying to go with it, it doesn't seem bad at all.

    Well maybe it need to be more brighter as in color?

    Doesn't look that much better than "Kim Possible" games for DS. Also, character animation is pretty bad. I think I'm going to skip.

    Considering Cave Story, no I don't think it needs more colour.


    I remember everyone hating on the WiiWare version because they changed it ever so slightly.
    I'm all up for a remake but I'd much prefer a prequel.

    I think it looks great. Don't get the hate. I've played the original as well.

    I don't see how the new visual style is lifeless... if anything, it looks even more lively than before. The movement is a little off, granted, but it's something I can easily look past and I'm sure will be updated pre-release.

    Also they said there was a little secret for fans of the original game. Which probably means the "original style" will be an unlockable.

    What just.... just what? You can't be serious...

    Does someone agree with this guy?

    All that on the environment,shading, looks sharp and what not to compare to a ds game isn't fair.

    There no way that would run on or look as good on the ds.

    I think I might see early GameCube?

    Seriously?

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    That not even a direct look at the 3DS.

    I noticed a loading screen showed up washed out back to the interview to hide the long loading time when it was taking forever.......

    I wouldn't be surprised if this game has long loading times...the graphics are pretty good.

    and the interview said that the DSi version had extra features like the Wii version...I call bullshit...

    the DSi had barely any new features except if just you call boss rush and time attack mode "a lot"

    they were still stingy with a lot of the the Wii version features and didn't port them to the DSi..

    oh....these enviroment graphics?...

    i'm thinkin' Metroid fucking Dread [​IMG]

    In all honesty, the only compelling reason for me to get this game is if they add some nice extras. Since I have this on dsi, I see no reason to buy it again.

    Now this is more like it. The Cave Story 3ds devs have added a 2d sprite mode.
    The project is saved. [​IMG] (maybe)
