'Cave Story' Indie Art - Stuff That Came

Cave Story

In anticipation of March 22nd's WiiWare release of "Cave Story," Nintendo sent over some awesome artwork from indie artist Cole Harrington, which depicts the game's hero kicking the ass of a beastie.

Along with the package was a very nice letter from the game's original creator, Daisuke Amaya, talking about the work he put into "Cave Story" and how excited he is to see its release on WiiWare.

I think it's a sign the games industry may be growing up a bit when swag goes from illegal weapons to classy artwork. Or wait, Nintendo sent me a plastic fish a few weeks ago. Yeah, we're still all kids at heart.

Anyway, here's super high rez shot of Cole's work, since my iPhone camera really doesn't do it justice.
