Cave Story developer has two games coming to 3DS

Cave Story developer Daisuke "Pixel" Amaya is having two of his freeware titles brought to the 3DS eShop courtesy of Nicalis, Siliconera reports.

Ikachan, a platformer set in an underground, underwater cave where the player assumes the role of a squid was first released as freeware — much in the same way that Cave Story was originally released — in 2000. Guxt, a five-stage vertical shooter, was also released as freeware in 2007. Nicalis is localizing both games for North America and will release them for 3DS on the 3DS eShop in the first quarter of 2013.

Ikachan has already been priced and dated and will release on Jan. 31, 2013 for $4.99. Guxt does not have a release date and price yet.
