Cave Story: I beat the game, but it didn't save!

#1Frozenx07Posted 1/18/2013 12:42:22 PM
The Cave Story board is dead, so I would appreciate the help.

After I beat the core, the credits rolled and stayed on an image. I pressed every button and nothing happened. I pressed start and quit. When I opened my save file, it was right before the fight with Misery. Why didn't it save? Isn't there supposed to be a New Game+?

Also, nothing was unlocked. I've been reading various walkthroughs, but I'm a bit confused since there are so many versions of this game. How do I unlock the other modes?

First of all, what you did after the credits ended was all you can do. The only way to exit the credits is to at anytime press start and exit the game.

Second, there are three different endings in Cave Story. The Bad Ending is when you just leave the island with Kazuma. This is the earliest ending achievable. The Normal Ending is to go through the game, defeat the Undead Core, and leave the island. The last ending is the Best Ending which unlocks the Challenges. (SPOILERS ALERT, I MAY SPOIL SOME OF THE FUN)The Best Ending requires that you have obtained the Booster V 2.0 and the Iron Bond. Here is a link for a loose walkthrough:

Also, it seems that there are claims that there is a fourth ending, here is the walkthrough for that as well if you wish to attempt it to confirm it:

Third, Curly mode can only be obtained by getting Curly's panties and the Nemesis challenge can only be obtained when you get the Nemesis weapon.


That is all of the information I can provide you with

Thank you for posting that wiki page. Apparently, I got the Normal Ending. I didn't get the Booster 2.0, Nemesis, or save Curly. I'll play through the game again. Since I love it, that won't be a chore. :)
