Cave Story+

For quite some time now, Nicalis has been not-so-subtly hinting that Cave Story would be making its way over to the Switch. And while it may be the case that the game is available on loads of others platforms already—not to mention the fact that the game is literally available for free—it still stands to reason that there's a good chunk of people that would wish to pick up the game for the Nintendo Switch. If you happen to be in that camp, then today is a day to celebrate, as Cave Story has finally been confirmed for a release on the Switch.

Cave Story will be releasing as Cave Story+ on the Switch, and it comes out (digitally and physically) on 20th June of this year. The port will run you $30, but it will supposedly be the definitive edition, with HD graphics, seven different modes (such as the Wind Fortress or Boss Rush), 10 unique weapons, and over 20 boss battles. No doubt a tempting offer to be sure, but the real question is: does it justify picking this game up again?
