We’ve mentioned several times that Nintendo’s WiiWare is not only home to some fantastic original IP, but also a place where indie titles can flourish. We’ve had some stunning downloadable games this year, but Cave Story might be the pick of the bunch. The game is a 2D platformer that pays homage to classics such as Metroid and Castlevania. The story starts with you waking up in a cave with no memory of how you came to be there. You stumble across a village of ‘Mimigas’ who are being hunted down by the ‘Doctor’…obviously not THAT Doctor. What follows is a tale of kidnap, rescue and escape.
The game will go on sale from December 10th priced at 1000 Wii Points.
