She also describes the minigame as "Looks like your cat wants to speedrun this stage", which could be a reference to how many players speedrun the [[BonusLevelOfHell bonus level]] in Cave Story.

* The use of the '3.3' rather than something like 3.5 or '[[GaidenGame gaiden]]' is probably a ShoutOut to VideoGame/{{Touhou}}, which has Hisoutensoku as 12.3[[note]]This turned out pretty well, since there ended up being two other spinoffs that took 12.5 and 12.8, but it looked damn odd when it was the only one[[/note]].
