Cave Story WiiWare dev – ‘I want to make more Cave Story’

Near the end of my TGS time in Tokyo, I was lucky enough to meet up with Tyrone Rodriguez of Nicalis, Inc. You know Tyrone. He’s the guy who helped bring Cave Story to WiiWare, and thank the Lord, it sounds like he’s still working his connections to squeeze more out of the title.

He and Pixel (Cave Story‘s creator) have been bouncing a few ideas around; bringing more Pixel games to consoles, putting Cave Story on more consoles, tweaking the pre-existing WiiWare version of the game, and tooling around with the very different, rarely seen Cave Story Beta. Nothing’s set in stone yet, but it’s all possible. I was excited enough by the sound of that, but then, as I was putting on my shoes, Tyrone showed me something… awesome.

More to come as soon as I get the green light from Tyrone and the gang.
