Here’s that Cave Story you ordered, Europe ⊟
On May 1, Cave Story will finally arrive on the 3DS eShop, an occasion commemorated by the amazingly Kool artwork above, tweeted by Nicalis.
Personally, I’ll commemorate this announcement by replaying Cave Story, like I do too often. Or not often enough. I’m still not any damn good at Cave Story.

Kero Blaster out May 11 ⊟

Drop what you’re doing and watch this. It’s the first trailer in a year for Kero Blaster, the new game from one-man Cave Story studio Pixel, and it’s looking hot.

There’s so much going on! It seems so much denser than Cave Story, but the music, graphics, and character movement all seem reminiscent. And, of course, the weapons.

This is being published in North America by Playism, on PC and iOS. It’ll be out May 11! So soon! Last year, Nicalis was teasing a 3DS version as well, but there’s no announcement of that today. Via Siliconera.

Cave Story USB drive
So I don’t know what Nicalis is teasing regarding this super cool Machine Gun USB drive – the developer says only “What could this be?” Hopefully the plan for this awesome little device is “send to JC’s house,” followed, I suppose, by “let other people get one somehow or whatever.”

It’s Ikachan on a 3DS! Neat! Nicalis recently revealed plans to release the Pixel-developed underwater action adventure on both 3DS and DS, purely in the interest of preserving native display resolutions.
In other Nicalis news, here’s a Halloween parody pic posted the other day for the Cave Story sale/update:

Balrog is a toaster. As shown here by this short CG animation from Cass Carpendale. The 3DS eShop version of Cave Story releases this week, in case you forgot.

Our own JC Fletcher has played the game and posted his impressions, calling it “the best way to experience classic Cave Story in a handheld setting.”

That’s a pretty nice Cave Story 3DS XL skin! Nerd Story — who also has a really cool Tumblr theme based on the game — created and ordered this through GelaSkins.

And just in case you forgot, Nicalis will release an expanded version of Cave Story with widescreen support and new content through the 3DS eShop on October 4.

Cool/creepy Cave Story Quote cosplayer with Cave Story creator Daisuke Amaya at PAX. If you never give up, and you believe in yourself, some day you’ll meet someone dressed up as the thing you made. Fatal Fury cap not guaranteed.

Palutena could be giving a shout out to Cave Story's Curly Brace in this exchange from Kid Icarus: Uprising. Who knows if it’s intentional or not; somebody ask Treehouse!
