It's not impossible to track down a physical copy of Cave Story 3D
, but unless you're willing to shell out $80 for a sealed version, you're kinda stuck hunting for a copy that isn't in a cracked or insert-less case. If you're set on exploring the adventure's 3D-visual remake on the 3DS, there's always another option: waiting for its eShop release, which Nicalis founder Tyrone Rodriguez has said
is due for North American and Europe later this year. While Rodriguez didn't discuss pricing, it's bound to be cheaper than its physical, out-of-print counterpart.
Of course, you could always sidestep waiting by getting Cave Story+
on Steam or the 3DS eShop's 2D version of Cave Story
, which runs for $9.99.
