Delighted that this was successful. Probably my game of the year so far.

Should be cross-platform and free if you buy the other, but I guess it's something.

That's shovel Knight bought 3ds, £12.99 for those that don't know.

I'm not sure how you get the free theme though, if anyone can confirm?

They are the same game on Wii U and 3DS aren't they? Will probably get this for the U.

There are a couple of exclusive features for each platform. I've put them in the OP. :arrow:

Steam price is £11, the American price plus VAT comes out to 11 and something, and the Euro price is 11.70. I'm feeling a bit sour about paying £13 for this after months of delay. Feels a bit shitty actually.

I picked up the Wii U version today and it's awesome. The sound, the style and gameplay is perfect 80's platforming and so much fun. It was 12.99 but i had 10 quid put aside from my digital purchase rewards from nintendo.

Bought this yesterday and was playing through the first level and was doing fine until the end where I seemed to lose my ability to time jumps :fp:
Had to go out and it probably shut down so I'll need to start again.
Looked lovely though

This game is so good ,it nails every aspect of the retro style from old NES games and it has some new ideas as well to throw in.it's also not just a regular platformer as it has a kind of castlevania extra weapon system which works well.

£13 for the best game of the year is a bargain.

I watched a launch trailer on the eshop...would I be right in thinking that the game is pretty long?
Well, not 'long' long, but long, y'know?
