Cave Story originally released as a 2D side-scrolling action PC game is now breaking into a new dimension for the Nintendo 3DS. Cave Story has been remade from its previous releases on PC and WiiWare. At once both a throwback to classic 2D action platformers and also the potential future of the genre, Cave Story 3D blends tight controls, superb level design, and excellent story and presentation to deliver a memorable, addicting retro experience! Cave Story 3D will be a side scrolling shooter in a 3D environment. The player must survive against a variety of enemies and environmental hazards. Later in the game, many challenges are derived from navigating through these hazards with limited fight ability. The levels are also often not strictly linear. The gameplay is a combination of high-speed shooting/action scenes, platforming, exploration and light puzzle solving.
