Santa Ana, CA – NIS America announced today that they are working together with Nicalis, Inc. to develop an all new action game, Cave Story 3D for the Nintendo 3DS™.
“I feel great possibilities working with Nicalis. They’re both skilled and dedicated with making no compromises. I think fans of the original Cave Story will be pleased with this latest incarnation.” said NIS America Producer Jack Niida. ”Also through this partnership, we would like to bring new life to the legendary game and make it accessible to a new range of audiences.”

About Cave Story 3D
Cave Story 3D is a side scrolling action adventure game inspired by the fan-favorite 2D original. Now in a full 3D world, Cave Story takes the proven 2D action, exploration into stereoscopic awesomeness. You wake up in a cave with no idea who you are or where you came from, but you know you must help a cute race of rabbit-like creatures beat the crap out of some crusty old doctor.
As you advance through the game, you’ll learn the origin of the Mimiga world and even your own. Like the critically acclaimed Pixel masterpiece, Cave Story 3D is a combination of high-speed shooting action scenes with heavy emphasis on platforming, exploration, light puzzle solving as well as a deep storyline.
