The Nintendo Switch version of Cave Story+ is available right now if you want to get your platforming on, and it’s about to get a whole lot more retro this fall. Starting this August, there’s a free update coming to the game featuring a classic graphics mode that’ll let you play the game the way it originally looked when it first released or the PC in 2004.
You’ll be able to play the game exactly as it was when it first game out back on PC on your Switch, so if you missed out on the hype train when it first pulled into the station back then, you’re in luck. And if you’ve never played Cave Story before, you should absolutely rectify this by picking up a copy of Cave Story+.

Following an amnesiac protagonist (yes, again) who finds himself waking up in a cave one day and stumbling into a plot by a Doctor who wants to take over the entire world, it’s a challenging platform that has you relying on all of your skills to prevail. It’s no simple adventure to complete, but once you do finally get through it all you’ll look back on it fondly as one of the best examples of the genre out there.
So get ready to take in the classic graphics of yesteryear with the free update on Switch this August for Cave Story+ and rewind all the way back to the past. It’s going to be worth it.
