The good news is that you can turn that stuff off if it turns out not to be as good as classic Cave Story. "Yes, the old music and graphics will both be retained via a switch," Rodriguez said. "You'll also be able to mix-and-match audio and visuals."
There's even better news, in fact. Pixel is involved with this project! He even answered a couple of questions. About the project: "Working on this project is like a dream come true; sometimes it feels like it's too good to be true. And I feel very lucky because Cave Story has the support of such a strong fanbase."
