Doesn't look out of place for a mod..

Hey, did anyone see this update yet?

First thought that pops up in my head is Boss Rush mode.
But who knows...?

I would imagine that would be boss rush, since they mentioned something about a museum-type setup.
Polar star looks cool too.

EDIT: An Igor altar would be pretty cool. You think that statue's nice? You should see the one for Kanpachi.

The one for Kanpachi is smeared with the blood of virgin sacrifices.

I'm gonna guess Boss Rush as well, unless the Core fight got a whole lot more extreme.

It'll all be revealed!

We've seen so little of Pixel over the many years of his games, but now there's a promised interview tomorrow, where we'll see Daisuke Amaya for the first time, ever!!

The Blog said:
The Nintendo Channel crew traveled to Kyoto, Japan to speak exclusively with him regarding the origins of Cave Story and how he came up with characters like Balrog.
Was Balrog based off of a Toaster? A Suitcase? A Lunchbox? All three?
Finally, the mystery will be solved! :D

The Nintendo Channel, 1 PM, Eastern Standard!
Tomorrow!! {Or today, for most of us}

What about us who don't have access to a Wii? I hope the video will be available on the Intrenet after the broadcast...

Yeap yeap, they just uploaded a video of it for those who missed it!

And, Balrog wasn't inspired by a Toaster, or Suitcase, but by a bar of soap?!

Why so glum, chum?

Thanks, Lowell. So, first of all, "OMIGAWD PIXEL!" Second, the new music is kinda not good. Or at least not as good as the good old music we're all used to. Third, The Balrog Revelation. I was kinda surprised by that, but it makes sense, I guess. I was also planning on saying that Balrog is whatever inspired his creation, though I'm not sure how would that work. And last, "OMIGAWD PIXEL!"

Well, I suppose the title "Soaprun" makes a bit more sense now, at least.
Pretty awesome stuff. Also, Pixel has a face :0

A bar of soap, eh?
I can't say anybody was expecting that one.

"OMIGAWD PIXEL!" pretty much also sums up my reactions.

Tyrone said you would be able to mix and match old and new stuff. Hopefully that applies to music as well.

I see the resemblance to that picture he drew.

Re: Cave Story Wii Developers Voice Video

So, was anyone else disappointed by the lack of intensity of their new Last Battle music playing in the background at 4:17? I was hoping for some epicness of tuneage, since it's the Final Boss theme.

Everything sounds worse out of 8-bit, look at Heart Gold/Soul Silver :/

Re: Cave Story Wii Developers Voice Video

Anyone else disappointed by all of the music shown in the video? (Aside from Moonsong.)

Also mystery solved: Balrog is a bar of soap.
