Cave S\

It’s a bit of an understatement to say that Cave Story has been released on a lot of platforms; Cave Story+ on the Switch is just the latest in a long line. Over the years, various iterations have tweaked and iterated on the original art style, and the new release did that yet again and offered a marginally different look to the classic graphics. Even so, some no doubt preferred the original look, and so Nicalis has put out a free update to cater to those fans.

The new update is now live for Cave Story+ and while it still maintains the new aspect ratio, all the sprites and effects are just as you remember them from the early 2000’s. This isn’t the only update you can expect for the game, either, as Nicalis has said that a co-op mode is on its way at some point in the future, along with some new areas.
