I have encountered contradicting information on this matter when browsing the internet. Some sources say:

Booster 0.8: Received from the professor in the labyrinth, if you follow his downward path. Click jump two times to fly. Note: Unable to upgrade to Booster 2.0 on easy mode in Cave Story+.

However, other sources state:

You basically need two things to get the Best Ending. You need the Booster 2.0 and you need Curly.

Does that mean that the best ending cannot be accesed in easy mode?

Could you add a link to those sources? – galacticninja Jan 2 '13 at 13:46
You can't jump over the pit on easy (or use Machine Gun Level 3)?Then, when you get back to the Arthur's place, you get Booster 2.0 when Booster teleports back in. I have only played the original version on PC though. – Shadow Z. Apr 9 '14 at 0:08

Correct, you can not get the best ending in Easy Mode. Kinda thought it says so at the beginning (in-game), but maybe not.

If your sources are right, then yes.

You must have the Booster 2.0 to get the Tow Rope and save Curly.
