Announced today by publisher Sega, and by creator Ron Gilbert via Twitter, The Cave now has a confirmed release date of January 23 on XBLA with a  1200MSP price tag. Equal parts sidescrolling platformer and point-and-click adventure, the game stars seven characters who venture into a mystical cave believing it contains the solution to their desires.
