I can't wait to pop my Cave Story cherry

Yep, I've never played any version of Daisuke "Pixel" Amaya's amazing freeware game, Cave Story (aka Dōkutsu Monogatari). That will change on Monday morning, though, when I download the WiiWare version of the Metroidvania-esque title.

Until then, I'll daydream about Quote, Curly Brace and the rest of the Dōkutsu Monogatari crew while listening to Annabelle Kennedy's "Cave Story Anthem."

The WiiWare version of Cave Story will set you back 1200 Nintendo Points, by the way. For more information on what's included in this iteration of the game, check out developer Nicalis' blog and/or the title's official NeoGAF thread.

1200?! Dang. I don't know that I can justify paying that much for it while I'm unemployed, but I REALLY want to play this game.

Yeah, it's a bit high IMO. 800 would be much better. At least they aren't charging 1500 points, though.

I just downloaded it, BTW. I probably shouldn't have, as I'm a bit short on cash myself, but I've been looking forward to it for a looooooong time. Anyway, I just played it for a few minutes and I'm quite impressed. I'll write more after I've played it for a few hours.
