Nicalis promises that Cave Story will be released soon, and offers new details.

In a recent blog post on Nicalis' official site, new details about the WiiWare version of Cave Story have surfaced. The game is finished, and is waiting for Nintendo's approval for release on the service.

Cave Story will have three save files and updated graphics and music. The game's original PC graphics and music will also be featured as a bonus. The Classic Controller will be supported, and the game will have three difficulty levels: easy, normal and hard.

There will also be support for downloadable content, with Nicalis possibly taking requests from fans. The game will also feature an updated script, with permission from original creator Daisuke Amaya.

After further apologizing for the game's delay, Nicalis ended their blog post by offering special holiday remixes of Cave Story's music by Dustin Kulwicki.

Better late than never. Here's hoping that the submission-and-approval process goes smoothly for Cave Story. It sounds like the developer has been incredibly thorough though, seeing as its release was delayed, like, four times or something crazy.

I'm also glad that they have officially confirmed additional content, but one thing at a time, Nicalis. They're only a small team, so they should have the sense to spread out the DLC over the latter half of 2010. If they are overly ambitious, the extra levels may fall flat and we certainly don't want that.

How could a game with this title not feature cavemen??

I'm amazed its taken this long. I look forward to the game since it's a Metroid-esque sidescroller. Maybe it'll pop up right after I get my fill of Castlevania Rebirth! :-)
