The title screen for most of the re-releases.

Cave Story has been made officially available on PC (freeware and Plus), Mac (Plus), Nintendo 3DS (Cave Story 3D and eShop), Nintendo DSi (DSi Shop), and Nintendo Wii (Wii Shop). These versions each have different sets of features, some being exclusive to certain versions. The price also varies for each version. Many unofficial ports have also been made for other systems such as PSP, Xbox, GP2X, and even on the Sega Genesis.

Notes Edit

  • Cave Story 3D is a retail game that is sold in physical cartridges; the rest is available via digital download.
  • The DSiWare version was removed from the 3DS eShop when the 3DSWare version was released. DSi owners are still able to buy it, but 3DS owners are not.
