Two of the better games on Nintendo's downloadable service are about to become even more awesome, according to fresh tidbits straight from Nintendo Power.

Cave Story is getting yet another re-release (how many does that make now?), and it will seemingly replace the DSiWare version currently available. This revamp will include pretty much every feature introduced in the various versions thus far, such as Boss Rush and Curly Story from the WiiWare port, the Wind Fortress bonus level from Steam's Cave Story+, and more. It will also have widescreen and stereoscopic 3D support, effectively making the goofy, polygonal Cave Story 3D irrelevant.

Next up is a Mighty Switch Force update that will improve the game's 3D effect, insert a "retry" option into the pause menu, and add five brand new levels. Coincidentally, lackluster 3D, lack of quick-retry, and short game length were precisely the things I criticized in my review. It's like WayForward is listening to every word I say. If that's the case, I would like to express how amazing it would be if WayForward made a new Battletoads, hint hint, nudge nudge.

No word yet on when these updates will appear on eShop.
