Of course the first official merch would be a GameStop preorder exclusive... If it becomes successful enough tho I'm sure they'd leap at the chance to capitalize on it. Or not, who knows?

Those living in Europe and Australia are getting the game, published by a third-party, Headup Games. Headupgames.com Looks like the two teamed up.

In other words, you don't really have to import.

I already have though. Well.. a preordered import.

Although even if I hadn't I would have anyway. For keychains.

There's no mention of CS+ on that website, though... odd.

Looks like you'll be able to move and shoot in different directions, or lock your gun in a direction kero blaster style
Oh no Nicalis. Don't change the controls of Cave Story. It'll make it hard to go back to previous versions and feel more limited in comparison.

I wonder. The 3DS version had a toggle to disable the widescreen, so will the new controls have a toggle, as well? As pointless as the widescreen toggle is, surely there'll actually be people that want the old controls.

BETTER HOPE SO. Will you be putting these new controls into your modloader?

Hey, I'm not that unoriginal =P. Even then, I don't have any plans to get a Switch in the future, so I wouldn't know how the new controls work outside of word-of-mouth.

I'm guessing they'll work something like Binding of Isaac. With the left stick being to move around and the right stick to aim. If so, wouldn't that mean using only one Joycon would toggle original controls?

I would imagine that it is more like the crabwalking feature in soul blazer, where you pretty much hold down a dedicated button to lock your current direction of facing.

They showed what the game case looks like. It will have the instruction manual and a Famitracks Mini Audio CD (3 inch). Aside from these is the GameStop exclusive Blind Box PVC Keychain (Random 1 of either Quote, Curly (pictured) or Balrog) and its microfiber pouch for it.

The CD and GameStop PVC keychain & pouch is for preorders.

Just pre-ordered Cave Switch, I'd like to discuss a bit.

I think the players will share a health bar, but not share weapon levels. As shown here, and it would only make sense that the two players would be able to use different weapons.
Curly Story is confirmed, along with wind fortress and the other challenges. Also I'd like to note that the video I linked doesn't seem to have any lighting, is it possible you can toggle the lighting and water effects?

Also, more on lighting, if you look here, it seems that the lighting is done through the actual tilesets, which is kinda dissapointing.

King seems to have whiskers in his overworld sprite, I'm not sure if it was that way before?

Do you guys think the instruction booklet will have more than just instructions?

And the most important thing, do you think Nicalis will be recycling more beta content?

But his facepic doesn't... So there's that.

NiCALiS has little idea of what they are doing, just kinda throwing things together as they please.

But I mean if this port is actually good then all the better to them, and glad CS is still becoming a part of people's lives. They might have learnt from past mistakes considering the constant love Tyrone seems to have of it.

-It might just be that they didn't make the lighting effect for that area.

-Well duh. Although it would SEEM that the backgrounds do have real lighting. Also King has his mouth closed in that image (I believe it's supposed to appear that way, but it just looks like shit), and we've seen flipped facepics. So I guess they've hacked together some new facepics.

-I hope so, that would be very nice. I'm sure that we're all interested to hear about CS's development above anything else. One thing that actually should be I there is a description of how Wind Fortress used to fit into the game's canon before being removed.

-Well, lazy as it would be on their part... I wouldn't mind seeing more of CS beta.

They don't look very good, sadly. NICALiS' artists don't seem to understand that mouths open downwards, not upwards. They also can't be arsed to make the animations look very good half the time either, apparently.

P.S. I'm interested to see how the facepics work technically speaking.

You mean opening down like this animated gif? https://twitter.com/nicalis/status/872153120104751104

Apparently.
