When Cave Story+ arrives in June, you can pick up the game in one of two ways. Nicalis intends to release the game physically, though it will also be sold on the eShop.

The Switch eShop has now updated with the size for Cave Story+. It’ll take up 137MB of space, which is definitely on the low side.

Cave Story+ launches in North America on June 20.

Nicalis’ Cave Story+ on Switch has got an interesting release history – it’s being published in all three major territories by three different publishers and each of them seemingly has different plans for a release date and the game’s physical version.

In North America, Nicalis are publishing the game themselves, and it will see both a physical and a digital release in June. In Europe, Nicalis is partnering up with Headup Games to release the game, though at this point we don’t know if the game is getting a physical there, nor do we have a concrete release date.

Today, we learned that Pikii is publishing Cave Story+ in Japan. It will get both a physical and a digital release there; as for the release date, we only have a rough time frame of “2017” at the moment.

One of the goodies included with the physical version of Cave Story+ is a full-color instruction manual. On its Twitter account, Nicalis gave a small preview (see above). The company promises that it’s packed with “top-secret info”.


Cave Story+ is initially set for June 23 on Switch. Down the road, it will be adding a brand new feature.

Nicalis confirmed on Twitter today that local co-op will be added late in the late summer. The company’s brief tweet is as follows:

Thanks to Andrew for the tip.


Headup Games is working with Nicalis to bring The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ to Europe before the end of Q2. When the announcement was made, it was also suggested that the two sides would partner on future releases on well.

Nicalis officially said on Twitter this week that Headup Games will be handling Cave Story+ in Europe. No word on a release date as of now, but the confirmation is nice to have in any case.


Just like with The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+, Nicalis will be including some extras with the physical version of Cave Story+. The company teased “a few unannounced goodies” on Twitter, which should certainly include an instruction booklet based on an image included with the company’s message.

Back in the day, an instruction booklet may not have seemed like much. But in this era, physical games often don’t come with anything anymore other than the cartridge / disc in most cases.


Wondering when Redout will be heading to Switch? It may not be too long until we receive a final date. Developer 34BigThings wrote in a blog post that an announcement should be made “soon”.

Going into specifics as to why it’s taken so long, 34BigThings explained that the initial PC release required a great amount of resources. This resulted in “less allocated time, more assets, regression bugs, more optimisation work” on consoles. In the end, “PC gamers got more stuff early, console gamers will get a polished game with the same content.”

Headup Games is teaming up with Nicalis to bring The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ to Europe and Australia, the company announced today. A release is planned for Q2 2017. Pricing will be set at €39.99.

It was also suggested that Headup and Nicalis will be working together again in the future. That may mean games like Cave Story+ and Redout will reach PAL regions as well.


The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ will have a second run, Nicalis announced on Twitter today. New copies of the game will come with an updated boxart, pictured above.

Nicalis wrote on Twitter a short while ago:

The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ is currently only available in North America. However, Nicalis has teased news for Europe at the beginning of next week.


The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ made it to Switch last month, though only in North America. Nicalis hasn’t had any news for Europe, but an update could be coming on Monday.

Nicalis wrote a message on Twitter last night that seems to be pointing in the direction of an announcement regarding The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ for PAL territories. It’s as follows:

I can’t really see what this could be other than The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ for Europe. We’ll keep track of the situation and will provide any updates as soon as we have them.
