    NIS America delayed Cave Story 3D two months, which pushes the game ever so slightly out of the Nintendo 3DS launch window. Cave Story 3D will debut on August 9 in North America with a PAL release following in September.[/p]

    Lol "Image Not Finalized."

    Better than the old one, still... but not appealing, still.

    Neogaf is absolutely trashing this game based on the art style of the revamped 3d graphics. I reluctantly agree with them.

    wha...Wha...WHAT? This is being published by Nippon Ichi? Why? Seriously, what affiliation do they even have with Cave Story or Studio Pixel? Don't get me wrong, I love NIS (especially Disgaea and Phantom Brave, my favorite Strategy game), it's just kind of random.

    When I read the title, I thought something totally different. Probably should have been more like "Cave Story 3DS Release Date Confirmed"

    Regardless, I don't know how to feel about this. I need to get Cave Story on my PSP so I can have an opinion.

    Why? The title's perfectly fine IMHO.

    When I hear something is dated, people usually mean that it isn't up to today's standards in some way, shape, or form. I dunno, just how I see it.

    The art style is pretty ugly, but in the end it's the gameplay that matters... Though the art style could be better. And August 9... 2 days before my birthday... *hopes for 3DS and Cave Story to be birthday present, though it's extremely unlikely*

    I also thought that the title referred to the game being dated/out of date...

    Most likely not going to get this. The 3D graphics look awful, and it pretty much makes me turn away from the game completely. The original, retro, 2D style of Cave Story would have been sooooooooooo much better, and it would have looked infinitely better than this.

    Get the DSi version then.

    I'll be getting this, I wouldn't however get it if it was the same as Wii/DSi as it's had enough ports.

    Hello Mr.Famous

    On-topic:- I don't get it why people are bashing it's gfx, these days people are double-minded lol, first they want a game with great or good gfx, when they get it, they want the art style to be the same as the old game?? C'mon people, with time everything changes, nothing stays the same FOREVER, if you do like the retro style then you can easily go back to Wii, DS or w/e other console this game is on.

    To live in this era:- Learn to adapt the changes and move on.

    EDIT:- And about the title being misleading to some, it is to me too, but I don't care lol, the point was to give us all the news. Thats that.

    The issue is that it never had bad graphics. It's art style in the original release was actually great and it had some great pixel art. It's just ruining the essence and charm of the game. Odds are it'll play the same, but it'll lack a lot of the graphical appeal the original had.

    I'm still saying this is the worst version of Cave Story yet. I'll stick to my PSP for portable Cave Story, thank you very much.

    (The DSiWare one is probably pretty good too).

    The whole point of the transition to the 3D screen is that the graphics should warrant it, but if they're not faithful to the original art style then it's not worth it.

    It seems they delayed the game a few months back.

    Oh well.

    Personally, I like the graphical style of Cave Story 3D. It may not be the best but it is doable.

    Well, this just pwns my expectations, I was expecting it to be some kind of shitty 3D platformer that doesn't have a damn to do with the original Cave Story. Still, this isn't the same..
