A couple of hours ago, Nippon Ichi Software America announced that their official release date will be changed to the 8th November 2011, due to additional improvements being made to enhance the overall gameplay experience. Whilst there is currently no official release announcement made for Australia, and due to the region locking limitation of the 3DS we are unable to play this release, there is always a possibility another company such as Namco Bandai Partners (Who released games such as Hyperdimenion Neptunia and Ar Tonelico III over here), so do keep your hopes up! Below is further details on the game, as well as a nice supply of screenshots to go along with it.
About Cave Story 3D
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. Our hero wakes up in a cave with no idea who he is or where he comes from—what he does know is that a cute race of rabbit-like creatures called Mimigasis in mortal danger at the hands of a maniacal scientist, and he’s the only one who can save them!
As you advance through the game, you’ll learn the origin of the Mimigaworld, as well as your own. Like the critically acclaimed Pixel masterpiece, Cave Story 3D is a combination of high-speed shooting action scenes with an emphasis on platforming, exploration, and light puzzle solving, as well as an engrossing storyline.
