Cave Story Coming Next Year

Though originally planned for release this year, the game has been pushed to next year but will feature some new material.

Many players have been patiently awaiting the WiiWare release of the indy favorite, Cave Story. A number of technical issues have kept the game from releasing this year, but to compensate for the delay, Nicalis will be including a brand new feature.

In November, the game was submitted to Nintendo for evaluation once again and was approved, though Nicalis leaked a picture of Quote now sporting new colors. The reason for the color change was unknown, but it has now been revealed via the official Cave Story Twitter feed that Quote will be featured in different colors for the new difficulty settings.

Nicalis also revealed that they have "a LOT" of DLC planned, "AND [that] [they]'re taking possible requests."

At this point, the exact release date is unknown and likely up to Nintendo solely when they decide to release the game.

At this point, I'll believe it when I see it up on the Wii Shop Channel.

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.
