Are you excited for release with this new trailer? local_offer Nintendo Shovel Knight wii u stars Further Reading Why Nintendo discontinued the NES Classic Nintendo will not have an E3 press conference Nintendo profits are up 520% Breath of the Wild sells 3.8 million units Is Nintendo shafting Axiom Verge because of Dan Adelman? Nintendo doesn't need 3rd parties, says Stardock CEO Assassinated23 How is this an HD trailer? The gameplay was all 16 bit. ZeldaFan83 The game is a 16 bit style game but is displayed in high resolution 720p/1080p. The pixels “bit size” doesn’t matter, that just determines how the graphics of the game may look like how much detail the textures or shading may have. HD refers to the resolution it is being displayed in like 1920×1080 (1080p). Assassinated23 Okay, I didn’t understand that before. Thank you. Magnus Eriksson Like that is a bad thing? I think it was awesome. Good to see that devs realizes Wii U’s limitations and releases games suitable for the console. So 16-bit is actually perfect. Why do you think Capcom releases Street Fighter II instead of SFIV on Wii U? Its all about what it can handle baby. Assassinated23 I wasn’t implying it was a bad thing necessarily, I was just confused how a game with retro style graphics could be considered high definition. Also, I think you’re underestimating the power of the Wii U. The 16 bit graphics have nothing to do with the limits of the console’s hardware, but is just an aesthetic design choice. The Wii U is a good bit more powerful than the 360 and PS3, so don’t act like it’s limited to SNES style games. Magnus Eriksson was just a joke from my part Rugmouse Prepare to taste justice! Shovel Justice! Magnus Eriksson Dont know why. But this game is really giving me a nostagic feel. Reminds me of a bunch of old classic 16-bits and 8-bits games. A bit of everything that I loved about platformers as a kid. The Clockwork Being Im sure you are going to buy it right Magnus. Magnus Eriksson I guess so, yes. Derk Old games like this belong in happy meals Magnus. You’ve got to put the past behind you. Magnus Eriksson If I did I would never become a console owner. I have one to cherish the kid in me you know 😀 Marcus Navarro I hate every single part of this sentence. I just wanna let you know that. Connor Devlin Really? You don’t know why? hahahero I see Duck Tales, Astyanax, and Sonic influences i right off the bat. Fred is there a release date for this game? Ashley King Not yet. Still waiting on the developers. Madmagican Some time before the end of 2013 originally it was thought to be in September-October but I don’t want Yacht Club to rush it BIG Franky here is to hoping the developer doesnt get too greedy with the pricing of this download. Madmagican FOR SHOVELRY!!!!! I’m so fucking ready for this game Also I’m glad to note that the Life bar isn’t a billion hits like it was for the demo 🙂 RyuNoHadouken shovel knight=shovel ware fireheartis1 Wow I felt like I was watching a trailer for a brand new NES title. I think I’ll download this game for sure. Marcus Navarro I want this game right now. I want this game right now. Right now, I want this game. This game, right now I want. I want, right now, this game. Basically, I want this game. *looks at spot wallet once was* jrob23 I must be the only one who thinks this looks like a NES title and a bad one at that. Hmmm discuss Shovelware? ScrewAttack All over it. A part of me hopes for a SNES-style sequel! And for some reason it makes me REALLY wanna play rocket knight adventures. Cyberus Oh I get it, it’s better then real games because it looks worse Luca Invernizzi It may be better than boring games cause it looks funnier. Besides, a little nostalgia never killed anyone, don’t be an asshole about it. Michael Hancock I just felt that music. Wiiluigi Can’t wait for this. Feels like forever!!!
