The 3DS revamp of cult indie platformer Cave Story tunnels its way into European stores this September, publisher NIS has announced.
US gamers will get the game first, with a 9th August release date confirmed there.
It's the same basic game as you might have played as a free PC download or upscaled WiiWare title, though with new 3D visuals (which you can inspect below) and a remixed soundtrack.
"Making the transition from 2D to 3D has been a challenge, but it has allowed us to further expand the Cave Story universe envisioned by Daisuke Amaya," commented Victor Rodriguez, CEO of developer Nicalis.
"I think fans will have a great time with the expanded world and characters brought to life in 3D."
The WiiWare version of the game scored an impressive 9/10 last year from Eurogamer's John Teti.
"If this game had been released on the NES 20 years ago, it would be recalled by a generation of players as a high point of the 8-bit era," he wrote.
