Best Nintendo 3DS Games – #13 Cave Story 3D

Developer: Nicalis

Release Date: November 8, 2011

Synopsis: The protagonist Quote awakens deep in a cave with amnesia. He quickly encounters the Mimigas, strange native creatures to the planet who are being kidnapped by someone called the Doctor. As he investigates, Quote is pulled into a far more dangerous plot than he thought he signed up for, one that branches into multiple endings. Cave Story 3D takes the familiar puzzle platforming of the original and brings it into 3D, but with an extra Sanctuary Time Attack mode unlockable, remastered music, and various other additions to the game.

Why It’s One Of The Best Nintendo Games: Cave Story’s influence on indie gaming and gaming in general is profound, and it’s been widely ported to various systems. But Cave Story 3D brought it to life in a new way, and on a system perfectly suited for its adventure and eccentricities. The new soundtrack is one of the highlights of Cave Story 3D, and the gorgeous new environments are worth exploring even if you’ve already played the original Cave Story. Simply by virtue of the platform, Cave Story 3D is one of the best versions of Cave Story.
