A boxed version of WiiWare favourite Cave Story is set to be released on the 3DS sometime in the future. It’s not just a basic port either, it will have new art and character designs, remixed music, new Easter Eggs and the clever 3D that the 3DS is capable of. Speaking to Gamesradar creator Daisuke “Pixel” Amaya had the following to say in regards to the added 3D:

“On the 3DS, there’s a great possibility for action games, especially these jumping around, action-type games like Mario, and things like that. But because there’s that sense of depth, players will be able to visually experience the distance. Like, before, it’s a simple “hit the button to jump across,” but now you’ll be able to hold down the button for a certain length to be able to jump a certain distance with the depth. And the visual difference is probably going to be a big plus for future action games.”
