Cave Story 3D Delayed

According to NIS, its delay is due to "improvements to enhance gameplay."

In a brief NIS press release today, the company confirmed that Cave Story 3D has been officially delayed. The game will no longer make its late summer release date, instead it will be available in North America on the 3DS on November 8, 2011. Additional game improvements "to enhance gameplay" are currently holding up the release, but according to Jack Nilda of NIS America, the "changes are in the small details ... but [they] need to make sure the game is done right."

Cave Story 3D is a 3DS remake of the popular indie PC game, turned WiiWare, turned DSiWare title. The game will take use of the 3DS' special capabilities, displaying the game in fully rendered 3D as opposed to its flat sprite-based look featured in all previous iterations of the game.

To ease the pain, NIS has provided a batch of seven new screen shots.

Would you recommend I wait for this, or buy the DSi version of the game on the Nintendo eShop.

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD Review

It almost hurts to write that it’s been 13 years since Sega released Banana Blitz back on the Wii. At the time, I know I couldn’t have been more excited that we were about to see a Monkey Ball game that leveraged the motion capabilities of Nintendo’s hit system. However, when it finally released, I wasn’t thrilled with the results. Rather than leveraging the Wii remote in its horizontal orientation, like many other motion-centric games had, it forced you to point forward and contort your arm in awkward ways to tilt the stage. I quickly shelved the game and wrote it off as a failure. I suspect I wasn’t the only one, because after all these years Sega has released an HD remaster of the game leveraging more standard console controls using the analog stick. Unfortunately, the transition has introduced level design changes that bring things to a degree of difficulty that I’ve found to be insurmountable.
