-and a rubber ducky with a tag on it featuring the Nemesis icon.
Honestly, i'd pay good money for that shit.

Also, this is more of what I'd do for the 20th anniversary, but i'd probably take a picture of me in a Quote costume floating on a raft in my grandparent's pool with a caption saying 'Another ten years comes and goes'
In the summer of 2014 (i lived with my grandparents at the time), i was obsessed with CS, so i'd run around all the time with this water gun that i somehow thought looked like the Polar Star, and i would also swim often because i was moving away in august. Eventually, i'd just play Swim Ikachan and random CS music while floating aimlessly reflecting on my life up until that point (because as all little kids, i was a retarded, pretentious fuck). This is also why it would say ten instead of twenty.

Good for you, though you really didn't need to revive a dead 3 year old thread.

It's pretty rad to see this thread tho, but yeah, probably nothing will happen for the 20th anniversary. A good remake would be rad tho.

We already have Cave Story Plus. Why would we need another remake?

I guess more in the style of 3D. I don't want a 3D Cave Story again, but a remake with more of a style change would be interesting. Besides a remake, I really don't know what else could possibly come from a 20th anniversary.

More merchandising? Or hell, maybe a "Definitive Edition Update" with the CS3D levels added into the 2D game. Or hell, even a PS5 and Xbox Series X port would be neat.

We can't really expect too much for this gen since we already have the game on modern Nintendo hardware.

A remake of 3D with graphics for a next gen console and a different artistic style would be nice.

Cave Story could be very pretty. 3D did some nice thing with lighting that the switch port didn't count.

Imagine Cave Story: 20th Anniversary Edition and it looked like this.

I'd literally cry.

That looks pretty cool. Where is that image from? It kind of reminds me of the glimpses we've gotten of CS ~ Encore.
It's from a digital artist that goes by "Castpixel." Interestingly enough, they WERE hired by Nicalis for a remake, but apparently the game made no progress after they finished some spritework. The story of the project goes REALLY deep, but I won't ramble here, haha.
