"Cave Story 3D has a mysterious charm, you will want to explore more and see what lurks deep inside the dungeon. Just be prepared, this game will refuel your passion towards video games once more."
Pitching in, Nicalis CEO and excecutive producer Victor Rodriguez said, "We're very excited to bring Cave Story to the Nintendo 3DS. Making the transition from 2D to 3D has been a challenge, but it has allowed us to further expand the Cave Story universe envisioned by Daisuke Amaya."
