An NIS rep told us that the company would offer more detail about the delay in a press release, expected today. In the meantime, we suggest ameliorating the wait for Cave Story with ... the other version of Cave Story, on DSiWare or WiiWare. You know, to get you ready for Cave Story (3D).
Update: the press release is after the break, specifying a November 8 release. Producer Jack Niida says that the changes being made to Cave Story 3D are " in the small details, but in order to satisfy both the fans and the new players we need to make sure the game is done right."

ABOUT CAVE STORY 3D
Cave Story 3D is a side-scrolling action/adventure game inspired by the fan-favorite 2D
original. Now in a full 3D world, Cave Story takes the proven 2D action exploration into
stereoscopic awesomeness. You wake up in a cave with no idea who you are or where
you came from, but you know you must help a cute race of rabbit-like creatures beat the
crap out of some crusty old doctor. Our hero wakes up in a cave with no idea who he is
or where he comes from-what he does know is that a cute race of rabbit-like creatures
called Mimigas is in mortal danger at the hands of a maniacal scientist, and he's the only
one who can save them!
As you advance through the game, you'll learn the origin of the Mimiga world, as well as
your own. Like the critically acclaimed Pixel masterpiece, Cave Story 3D is a combination
of high-speed shooting action scenes with an emphasis on platforming, exploration, and
light puzzle solving, as well as an engrossing storyline.
