Nicalis has been busily working on updates for Cave Story+ coming in the near future, and showed off a brief clip of the new multiplayer mode in action. In the short clip the main character and side character, Curly, are seen fighting off one of the many bosses. Second player being Curly is a first in their reveal for multiplayer and brings up some interesting questions, as she is a character that appears frequently throughout Cave Story. This could mean that the second player might have possible choices in character skin when joining in, and could choose between the normal character model or Curly as they’re the two that are usually seen wielding weapons.
The multiplayer update for Cave Story+ is planned to release later this summer on Nintendo Switch. You can check out the short multiplayer clip right here!
