cheetahman91 said:

Made by same developers as Cave Story huh? Might get this, the pictures give off an Indiana Jones vibe.



Namo said:

The original PC one was the most blisteringly difficult yet extremely fun game I've ever played EVER. So the fact that Nigoro's giving the game a graphical overhaul and making the controls easier is sure to make this a definite purchase.



Drake said:

It's not, it just says that they can't release accurate sales data until the game has been released outside Japan.

I am so sad that this isn't coming to the West! It looks awesome! Someone please publish this here!

The original PC game is fantastic. Probably the best "Metroidvania" I've played ever, excluding Super Metroid. It's packed with tricky platforming, clever puzzles/riddles, cool bosses and secrets.

I've only tried the WiiWare version a little bit, but it looks just as good.
