Pixels Cave Story is a wonder on its own. Through word of mouth (and the greatness that is the internet), Cave Story has reached a level of gaming fame that Daisuke Amaya may have never even dreamed of. But after going from being free on the PC to being available on WiiWare and DSiWare, where else is there to go for Cave Story? Why, to the 3D realm, of course! And what would better suit 3D than the next big thing in 3D the 3DS. According to NIS America a fully reconstructed in 3D version of Cave Story is going to be made and released onto the 3DS.According to a GamesRadar interview with Amaya, he stated that the only difference between the original game and the 3D version will be the actual levels. Amaya stated The difference between the original Cave Story and Cave Story 3D is going to be the environments are going to be in full 3D, but we will keep the original style of the game, which is a 2D scrolling action game. Not changing the game at all is a great decision. As the old saying goes If it aint broken, dont fix it! Im glad to hear that Cave Story is getting more exposure, and for those of you who havent played this amazing game yet, this 3D version seems like perfect opportunity to jump in. Or you can always just play it right now. We will keep you updated on the latest news regarding Cave Story 3D!
If you enjoyed Hotel Dusk, then you have two reasons to be happy. One, because CING, the developer behind that great game, has a new mystery title releasing in only a few weeks: Again comes to DS on March 30, 2010. Second, because a new mystery starring detective Kyle Hyde from Hotel Dusk has been announced, although details are sketchy (no pun intended).
Still, Again, although it has a far more realistic look than its cousin, with real actors scanned in and using full-motion video segments, promises to be intriguing. You play as FBI investigator Jonathan Weaver, who has the ability to view a crime scene both in the present state and at a time in the past. Holding the DS like a book, you will have access to both versions of the crime scene, and thus must carefully study each to help gleam clues in order to solve the crime.
