The soundtrack was later remastered by indie game music writer Danny Baranowsky. It contains remastered/remade music pieces from the original soundtrack, with mainly electronic instrumentation. This soundtrack was used for Cave Story 3D, and was also included as the default soundtrack for Cave Story+.
Cave Story+ Edit
This is an arrangement of the soundtrack by Yann Van Der Cruyssen, used as the default soundtrack in the WiiWare and Switch versions. Some criticisms include straying too far away from the classic melodies, lack of bass, and weird pitch and looping in the tracks. However, according to the website Tiny Cartridge, these problems were due to improper editing on the game tester's part. This soundtrack is included as an optional soundtrack for Cave Story+ on Steam, and as an optional soundtrack for the Wiiware version (in the Wiiware version it is selected as the default soundtrack on start up).

This is an arrangement composed by metal band Ridiculon for Cave Story+ on the Nintendo Switch. These tracks feature heavy guitar and drums. It's interesting to note Ridiculon also preformed the soundtrack for two other indie games, Super Meat Boy and The Binding of Isaac.
