After a sizable delay earlier this year that prevented the development team from releasing in March as planned, Yacht Club Games has finally announced that Shovel Knight will be releasing on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS on June 26. The game will be playable at E3 on the Nintendo 3DS console, so we’ll track down the crew for coverage of the game so you can see early hands-on footage of what to expect. No information was given on a European release date, but the team did mention that they’ve been working with localization and ratings specific to the European release so it should follow in some time. For those who want to play the game on PC, that will be an international release so you won’t have to wait for localization there. Are you excited about finally taking command of the legendary Shovel Knight? local_offer E3 2014 Nintendo Shovel Knight wii u stars Further Reading Nintendo shares up 20% since Switch launch What's your dumbest death in Breath of the Wild?

Gamerrr72 Download or disc? thedeciderU pretty sure it’s eshop only. Zuxs13 been looking forward to this game for a while, definitely will down load it day one, with the eShope points i earned from mario kart and Pikmin 3. thedeciderU hell yes i am. hell yes. Michael Hancock It’s about goddamn time. Roadkill409 I am looking forward to this game. I did not mind the delay if it meant a better game. Everything has to feel right in the game, especially for a retro looking game like this. It would be cool if it came in a “box” like the picture above. slush_puppie if you backed the initial kickstarter project with $50 or more then you DO get the box pictured above (or very similar). Roadkill409 Bummer, I did not find out about this game until after it was over. But very cool for the people who got it.
