Nicalis Wants You to Know Cave Story DSiWare Music is Perfect

Posted by James Newton

Upcoming update for WiiWare too

Cave Story was a much anticipated WiiWare release – of course, European gamers are still much anticipating its eventual release – but the forthcoming Cave Story DSiWare is beginning to mimic its big screen predecessor in terms of generating excitement. Some gamers will be hoping it doesn't copy some of its problems though, including the occasionally shonky music, but producer Tyrone Rodriguez assures players that won't be the case.

An interview between Tyrone Rodriguez Tiny Cartridge gave the Nicalis man the chance to assure those concerned about the music it'll be A-OK.

Tyrone Rodriguez: Oh yeaaah!! The other thing we learned is that audio is almost more important to Cave Story fans than artwork. For those ready to bitch about the audio, it’s perfect this time around, the first time around.

The interview also briefly covered an upcoming update for WiiWare Cave Story, which will "address a game-breaking bug and a ton of other fan-requested fixes," in Rodriguez's own words.

We'll update you with more Cave Story information as it arrives.

Cave Story PC music is perfect, too. And you don't have to wait until the next century before you can play it in europe.

Well, I thought they'd learn from their mistake of not checking the audio for the WiiWare version. Good job Nicallis.

Fixing the music on WiiWare? Ummm... I kinda actually like the current music, but I guess you gotta do what you gotta do...

Thank God WiiWare can receive updates. It's just too bad that they aren't AUTOMATIC updates like every other console has, because sometimes I completely forget that you can update WiiWare games at all.

I'm extremely psyched for the DSiWare version, though. This is going to look great on my DSi XL screen.

I wonder if they'll include the "new" music from the WiiWare game, except the orignal?

@2D: What, you WANT to buy a buggy game? I didn't finish the game I wasted $12 on BECAUSE of the bugs. Let them fix it, THEN release it.

@Malouff: I'd like to think that's one of the "fan-requested fixes." It sure as heck OUGHT to be, at any rate.

I sure hope the bug they're fixing is the sound of those golden triangles bouncing.

Wow, didn't know about the game breaking bug... I actually have been saving Cave Story (already bought it) for when I had more time. Guess I'll wait for the patch now before playing it. Glad I waited...

Hey! I know that we are talking about music here... but, where did you get that incredible artwork? That isn´t the actual gameplay... it looks so great!! I have check the Nicalis site and i saw some amazing images in there too. Are these part of the things they plan to improve with the next patch? Or it is just a bug-fixing? (I have my fingers crossed)

Unless I got really lucky or clearly missed something, I think the map bug is the "game-breaking bug". Personally, I think that the map is pointless. Who uses it for any reason other than to find a pair of panties in a wall.

"for those ready to bitch"...kinda passive-aggressive douchey. When you charge 12 bucks for a simple sidescroller and it isn't perfect (considering that the original was...and 1 dude did it...and it was free...) I will bitch all day and night thank you very much. Possibly on into the next night.

That said, I'm glad the music's getting fixed. Hopefully it'll be easier not to have aural-molestation with the bouncing triangles given the static speakers (not variable like home audio setups) on the DSi. Helpful tip for Nicalis - if you listen to a game's audio before you release it, you catch things like improper looping and deafening sound effect build-up.

Maybe I didn't notice anything wrong with the game because I have only played the Curly mode. I figured I played enough as Q on the pc dozens of times.

I know a lot of people will want to shoot me for saying so, but I wish there were a Cave Story game with graphics like the ones in the picture for this article. =p

I'm not sure I'll get the DSiWare version of this or not, since I already have the WiiWare one. It's a fantastic game but I wish they would do something different with it other than porting it over and over. Sequel? Please?
