    OMFG IT'S LIKE EARLY CHRISTMAS! [​IMG]

    Confirmed for the Holiday season on WiiWare!

    source: http://gonintendo.com/?p=58030

    For those not aware, Cave Story is a "indie" classic side scrolling adventure game.. much like Metroid.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cave_Story

    You can find the game for free (legaly) searching on google (I'm to lazy to find the link now) [​IMG]

    GREAT DAY! [​IMG]

    edit: Sorry the all caps title.. I'm over excited [​IMG]

    He ran in to some problems with some DirectX parts and eventually found someone else who had a much better working copy of his code in a few days, so they are working together, but we haven't heard anything of it in a long time (Months).

    I'll just play it on PSP.

    If I get a Wii I'll get it I guess.

    I'd buy this, I know I can get this for free but I reckon it deserves my money.

    Now excuse me.

    FUCK YEAH.

    Thank you.

    Reason for the "fuck yeah" is this is what I hoped for with WiiWare, indie devs being able to launch games on this and we've already seen that if a game is good on WiiWare, it will do well so I'm hoping that this does do well.

    I was a late comer to Cave Story, but I loved it nonetheless. This is one hell of a week for Nintendo.

    Hurray!
    For some reason, I like replaying Cave Story on whatever platform it gets rereleased.

    Well, that's another guaranteed buy for me. :3

    Exclusive content, huh?

    New weapons.
    Play as Curly Brace.
    New areas.
    New secret bosses to make that one guy look like a bitch.
    And a new English translation! Yay.

    Gonna guess the game will be...800-1000 Nintendo Points. Yeah.

    God, I'm going to strangle someone if you can download it, play it on the Wii, and then send it to the DSi to play on the go there too. >O!

    New (official) English translation I can see, but "new character designs" makes me wonder...I actually rather loved how everyone looked in the original game, and that was part of the game's charm. If they've changed "TV Man" Balrog, I'm going to be pissed!

    Pixel (the creator of the original) is involved in the project and the "new designs" are all made by him.. so, I think everything will stay very faithful to the original..

    This excites me.

    This game is above and beyond most of what you will find in retail. Entirely developed by ONE GUY.
    This game long deserved to be on a console, and now it will be. I just hope corporate developers can learn something from Amayasan.
