Tyrone Rodriguez, who works at NICALiS, tweeted something interesting recently. It seems he said, “We’ve put in a vertical display mode in Guxt eShop just for fans of arcade shooters.” Guxt is described by the Cave Story website as a Pixel’s shooter with five stages, each wirh bosses, various power-ups and various different play modes. 

Below are images of Guxt, showing off its’ retro style. This leaves us room to wonder what types of upgrades the game will have when it comes to the Nintendo 3DS eShop.
