Shovel Knight (Can You Dig It?) Gaming-shovel-knight-1

Unepic got its own thread, so I don't see why this shouldn't.  It's probably my most anticipated eShop game at this stage, with some competition from Hyper Light Drifter (but that's ages away).  For those not in the know, it's an 8-bit-esque platform game with treasure collecting, a Mega Man-style selection of bosses, and a shovel-blade which can be used for fighting, digging and Scrooge McDuck-style pogo-ing.  

In the newest news about the game, SK will be implementing Miiverse support on the Wii U.  It also has odd-sounding StreetPass functionality on the 3DS, but this topic's in the Wii U forum on the assumption that most people will play it there.  Am I wrong?

The StreetPass functionality sounds ace, to be fair, but I'll be buying the Wii U version. That way, you can experience it on the big screen and the little screen.

Having just seen the video for Scram Kitty, that's my most anticipated Wii U eShop title... but SK isn't far behind. Soon there'll be more interesting stuff on the eShop than there is on shelves... Aww!

These acronyms are going to get confusing. Meh

I'm with zero on this one, tbh apart from a handful of retail games here & there I'm honestly more excited for the e shop games (Same goes for ps3/psn stuff too) as I'm currently preferring the quick & fun experience.

Takes me back to the good old days. Smile

Agreed. Really looking forward to this. It's the Gandalf to Duck Tales Remastered's Saruman.

Here's a developer interview: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=XQetK0fbkB8

I really do like the sound of the Miiverse functionality as it reminds me of the message system from dark souls.

That's a shame but at least it doesn't seem to be too long of a delay.

I'd be digging it, if I could be playing it! Wink The silver lining for me is that delays give me a chance to spend more time with the games that are currently lying around, unloved.

Going by this video: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=6-7sznhAJnk

It seems this shouldn't be too far off from release seeing has he says they will be ready to ship once PAX is over, so end of this month or early May perhaps?

Terrifying thought: Scram Kitty, Shovel Knight and Children Of Light all on the same day! Shocked It is looking good - having played DuckTales and Tropical Freeze this year, I am well-practised at the pogo stick gameplay. Wink

You mean brilliant thought!  I thought this was going to make early April, but it looks like I defined "a couple of weeks" too literally.

I also kind of want the 3ds version as well now as the streetPass feature sounds really good.

That's the way to demo your game - just be balls-out happy about it. I'm definitely getting this.

Even in that video, I can't escape from Dark SoulsSulk

Americans are just so enthusiastic, bless 'em. A British journalist would be going, "Well, it's all right. Yep. Pretty good, I think. Not bad, anyway."

I tried to be light-hearted about it and it turns out I'm being trolled, again. Neutral More fool me.  I just won't mention it in the future.

Good news: This is out June 26th

Bad news: It's for the US only. (at the minute)


I'm getting quite tired of Nintendo of Europe dragging their heels on e shop releases compared to the US, in the last two days that's two games that are either out or have a release date while us in Europe are sat twiddling our thumbs waiting once again.  Hissy fit

Balla posted about it in the June Release Thread and his link says it's something to do with the rating, guessing age why it's delayed. So maybe blame PEGI.

Possibly, but only if they're publishing. And even then it's very possible that they aren't responsible.
