Cave Story+ gets a Holiday Overhaul

I love talking about Cave Story, but with so many versions of the game out today, it's hard to know which one to recommend. The new backgrounds, soundtrack remixes, hidden areas, and 3D graphics of the 3DS version make that rendition of the game an easy recommendation, but can I really say that it's better than Cave Story+ on Steam? That version of the game has even more bonus content, the beautiful 2D sprites from the WiiWare version displayed in HD, and now... Christmas. I think this pushes Cave Story+ into front runner territory. 

The WiiWare version had a special Holiday surprise as well, but it wasn't as big as this. Actually, I wont know exactly how big this update is until I play through the whole game again, but I know for sure that that the game's protagonist is currently a Santa suit-clad reindeer, and the familiar Mimiga village is now covered in snow and decorative lights. It all makes me want a Cave Story animated Christmas Special to come on TV immediately. Since that's probably not going to happen, I guess I'll just imagine one in my mind. It features Balrog getting kisses from Monster X underneath the mistletoe while that fat Mimiga eats some of those little mushroom guys.  

If you have Cave Story+ and a little time today, please explore the game and get back to us in the comments about what Holiday changes you've found. And be sure to check back on the game on other Holidays. I'd bet dollars to donuts that there will be a special Halloween surprise as well.

Thanks Daryl Noir!
