Cave Story+ Now Available in North American Stores for Nintendo Switch!

SANTA ANA, Calif., June 20, 2017—Nicalis Inc. has officially released the blockbuster Cave Story+ video game for Nintendo Switch in North America. With an MSRP of $29.99 ($39.99 in Canada), players can download a digital copy from the Nintendo eShop or acquire a physical Game Card from their favorite retail outlet.

An unforgettable, life-changing adventure, Cave Story+ puts the player in the shoes of a young hero who wakes up in a hidden wonderland of terrible danger and glorious reward. Unaware of his origin, his purpose or even his own name, the traveler soon encounters a race of rabbit-like creatures called Mimiga on the brink of extinction. Nearly every character he meets gives him another clue to piece together the story of the Mimiga’s oppression and the mystery of his own past.

A highly polished, finely tuned platform/shooting/exploration game, Cave Story+ uses the appealing visual aesthetic of classic 16-bit video games to draw players into a world deep with emotional storytelling. “It’s a big thrill to have Cave Story+ available on Nintendo’s newest game console,” said the game’s creator, Daisuke “Pixel” Amaya. “I hope everyone enjoys playing the Nintendo Switch version on the big screen and also on the go.”

At initial release, physical copies of Cave Story+ for the Switch will feature several fan-pleasing collectible bonus items in the case with the Game Card, including a full-color 32-page instruction manual and a free Cave Story+ Famitracks soundtrack mini-CD. Physical copies sold at GameStop will also include a “blind-bagged” chibi keychain featuring one of three Cave Story characters, randomly inserted. The PVC keychain comes in a branded microfiber drawstring pouch that doubles as a cleaning cloth to safely remove fingerprints from your Nintendo Switch screen without scratching it. The instruction manual/CD inserts and the GameStop-exclusive keychains will only be available in strictly limited quantities based on the game’s initial production run.

Developed and published by Nicalis, Inc., Cave Story+ is now available for Nintendo Switch for the suggested retail price of $29.99 ($39.99 in Canada). The game has been rated E10+ (for Everyone 10+) by the ESRB. Nicalis previously developed and published the Switch hit The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+, a hugely popular Roguelike game, and has also announced plans to release several additional Switch games in 2017, including the futuristic anti-gravity racing game Redout, the sword-and-sorcery platform adventure Tiny Barbarian DX and the retro-inspired platformer 1001 Spikes.

Review of Nicalis’ Cave Story+!

Here’s our video review of Cave Story+ by Nicalis for the Nintendo Switch.

Nicalis’ Cave Story+ will be getting local co-op as a free update!

Cave Story+ launching June 20th on Nintendo Switch!

SANTA ANA, Calif., April 7, 2017—Game publisher and developer Nicalis, Inc. today announces the definitive version of the 2D action game Cave Story+, coming to Nintendo Switch on June 20th, 2017, both at retail and digitally via the Nintendo eShop.

Like The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ (also developed and published by Nicalis, Inc.), Cave Story+ on Nintendo Switch represents the definitive version with new challenges, gameplay options and enhancements. Switch players can also look forward to more levels and additional subtle graphic improvements, future free content updates as well as a few bonuses that are yet to be revealed.

With its striking blend of platforming action, shooting and exploration, Cave Story+ offers plenty of “twitch” for the Switch. But storytelling is a huge contributing factor to its international success. Through a series of brief and often emotional conversations with various characters, players gradually learn the tragic history of the game’s cast as well as its amnesiac adventurer, whose athletic ability and weapon skills are much more advanced than his appearance would suggest.

Developed and published by Nicalis, Inc., Cave Story+ will release on Nintendo Switch on June 20. Pricing is set at $29.99. Nicalis, Inc. is also the developer and publisher of the definitive roguelike The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ and publisher of the hyperspeed racing game Redout on Nintendo Switch. All three games will be available in physical form at retail and digitally via the Nintendo eShop in 2017.
