'Cave Story' 3D' (3DS) Announced - Screens

Cave Story 3D is an action-adventure game overflowing with unmatched charm and character, taking players into a world where a race of rabbit-like creatures, called Mimigas, run free on a serene floating island.

Cave Story 3D is a side scrolling action adventure game inspired by the fan-favorite 2D original. Now in a full 3D world, Cave Story takes the proven 2D action, exploration into stereoscopic awesomeness. You wake up in a cave with no idea who you are or where you came from, but you know you must help a cute race of rabbit-like creatures beat the crap out of some crusty old doctor.

As you advance through the game, you’ll learn the origin of the Mimiga world and even your own. Like the critically acclaimed Pixel masterpiece, Cave Story 3D is a combination of high-speed shooting action scenes with heavy emphasis on platforming, exploration, light puzzle solving as well as a deep storyline.


"I feel great possibilities working with Nicalis. They’re both skilled and dedicated with making no compromises. I think fans of the original Cave Story will be pleased with this latest incarnation." said NIS America Producer Jack Niida. ”Also through this partnership, we would like to bring new life to the legendary game and make it accessible to a new range of audiences.”

Since its foundation in 2003, NIS America has operated under the philosophy of “entertainment for all,” and brought games that satisfy its many customers. NIS America introduced its first video game Phantom Brave in 2004, and since then have been constantly releasing multiple video games and anime.
