In this new Cave Story 3D trailer gamers get a glimpse of the game’s impressive environments and stages, which are built upon the classic title’s side-scrolling atmosphere. The graphics have received a complete overhaul and are quite stunning for a handheld console. The platforming action has returned in a whole new way, and will be a refreshing and enjoyable experience for long-time fans of the franchise.
