In the options menu for Cave Story+ on Nintendo Switch, there is an option labeled Flipped Input. I didn't see an explanation in the game's manual and, as far as I'm aware, this option is not available in any other version of Cave Story.

What does the Flipped Input option do?

Screenshots for comparison:

    Did you actually try playing with the option on both settings? It seems like it would just change the bindings.

The Flipped Input option swaps which buttons are used for jumping and shooting.

  • Off: A-Jump; B-Fire; Y-Jump
  • On: A-Fire; B-Jump; Y-Fire
