After a month of silence on the project, developer Nicalis has updated their development blog with information for the upcoming WiiWare title.
The acclaimed independent game Cave Story is in fact still coming to WiiWare later this year. The game may have missed a Christmas release date, but Nicalis has confirmed that "Cave Story for Wii hasn't been killed" and that they are taking the extra time to "make sure everything is perfect."
Nicalis went on to say that they are working hard to stay faithful to creator Daisuke "Pixel" Amaya's original while adding things of their own, like downloadable content. Many fans have e-mailed Nicalis expressing their desires for the game, so the studio is doing their "best to include some new surprises in the WiiWare release."
For further specifics though, the development blog said that fans are "going to have to wait."
