Nicalis has today announced that Cave Story+ will be coming to the Nintendo Switch in Europe. Published by Headup Games, Cave Story+’s official European release date September 7.

Cave Story is a platformer that first released in 2004, and the enhanced Cave Story+ version had a North American Switch release in June (and, given that the Switch is region free, it’s possible you’ve been playing it since then already).

‘Switch players can also look forward to more levels and additional subtle graphic improvements, future free content updates as well as a few bonuses that are yet to be revealed’, stated Nicalis when discussing the original North American Switch Release. A planned local multiplayer mode is also due to be added to the game sometime this summer.

Headup Games is also publishing another Nicalis game on the Switch, The Binding of Isaac Afterbirth+, and this latest announcement further solidifies the working relationship between Nicalis and Headup Games.

Headup Games would not confirm quite how far this relationship will extend, only commenting ‘did we mention that good things come to those who wait?’.
