As I wrapped up many of the Sony games not mentioned during their E3 press conference on Wednesday, today I’ll bring word of a number of DS and Wii games that went unmentioned by Nintendo, starting with the latest look at Nicalis’s overhaul of Pixel’s oft-mentioned and still gold-standard indie platformer Cave Story.

Despite appearances, and dashing hopes, that bit from 0:18-0:25 that looks like the first appearance of co-op multiplayer is, unfortunately, an AI-controlled plot point. Nintendo lists Cave Story as a summer 2009 game.

    Multiple times on multiple platforms since I first wrote it up for Edge the week it debuted, just verifying to not get hopes up for the surprisingly many people that still haven’t.
