Our Switch videos of Cave Story +

If you own a Switch, you must have seen that the Nintendo eShop gets new content from the indie scene on a regular basis. Cave Story + may not be new to you if you've owned a DS, a 3DS, a Wii or a PC, but it has been released recently on Nintendo's new handheld and we have captured the first 40 minutes or so of the game. In case you have never heard of this title, it is a platform-adventure game in which your weapons can level up provided you collect the yellow triangles the enemies drop when you take them down. Much like in a shoot them up, you can gain more and more firepower (up to level 3), but every time you lose health, your weapon level gauge also diminishes, which means your equipped weapon can eventually level down. With power-ups to increase your health or the number of missiles you can carry, exploration is rewarded, which comes in handy when having to deal with the regular boss encounters. An excellent title if you don't mind its retro gaming style.

    GriftGFX It's crazy that Fortnite hasn't launched in China yet. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX They must allow some early access since FN is still early access, but I guess Daybreak wasn't ready. I wonder how anyone can keep up with Epic. (1 Hour ago)

    KORNdog @GriftGFX: it could get a second wind on PS4 on account of there being no PUBG. be good for those who want an alternative to Fortnite. (1 Hour ago)

    GriftGFX PUBG and Fortnite really stole its thunder. And its users. (1 Hour ago)

    GriftGFX Still.. the life of that game was its early access period. The PC version isn't dead, but it's on life support. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Seems like a missed opportunity for Daybreak. I guess Playstation doesn't really do early access though? They just went 1.0 recently. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: i think it was originally going to be back when they were Sony online entertainment inc. But then Sony dumped them and things changed I guess. (2 Hours ago)
