Daisuke Amaya's freeware platforming adventure turned WiiWare hit isn't coming to the Nintendo 3DS until this holiday.

If you haven't played Cave Story yet, you're missing out. The game's endearing art style and retro gameplay successfully channel 8-bit classics like Metroid, Ninja Gaiden, and Mega Man. If you don't own a Wii or PC but have a shiny new 3DS, you'll have to wait to pick up the 8-bit throwback on November 8. The game was originally supposed to come out in August.
