Arguably the most well-known indie game of all time, Cave Story features a completely original storyline wrapped with personality, mystery, and classic 2D action! Overflowing with unmatched charm and character, Cave Story takes you into a rare world where a curious race of innocent rabbit-like creatures called Mimiga run free. Their only hope against a vile scheme rest squarely on the shoulders of a quiet amnesiac boy who can't remember his own name. Take control and learn the origins of this world's power, stop a delusional villain, and save the Mimiga!
Equally exploration and action-adventure Cave Story is from the critically acclaimed independent designer, Daisuke Amaya. Now officially available for the first time on a console, Cave Story takes the addictive classic 2D gameplay formula and brings it up to speed with all-new audio-visuals and 10 highly potent and destructive weapons, each with three levels of power!
Along with the higher-definition graphics and music, Cave Story for Wii includes five new and fresh play modes. New players are welcomed to try Easy Mode while Cave Story veterans can tackle Hard Mode — if they can handle it. Players can also challenge every boss in Boss Rush Mode or try their skill at Sanctuary Time Attack and play story mode as the lovable Curly!
