NIS America announced this week that they will be porting retro indie favorite Cave Story to the 3DS, complete with 3D graphics. Unlike the Wii and DSi ports, Cave Story 3D will get a complete visual overhaul. NIS and Nintendo hope that will be enough to convince indie fans to shell out for the new version. That’s a tall order: Though it was not specifically mentioned, expect Cave Story 3D to be a full-fledged cartridge release, complete with a full-fledged cart’s price tag.
NIS has yet to announce a release date. Keep checking back and we’ll post more info as it comes.
