Shovel Knight sees cross-platform discount in Europe, Australia & New Zealand


It isn’t only an exclusive Nintendo 3DS Home Menu theme that Yacht Club Games are treating those across Europe, Australia and New Zealand to, having today announced plans to offer a cross-platform discount through the Nintendo eShop.

In thanking prospective players “for enduring the long wait,” there will be a 33 percent discount available to those that buy both the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions through a linked Nintendo Network ID.

This will last throughout the remainder of the year, although a release date is yet to be announced for Shovel Knight’s arrival.

  1. Hi, I am in the Netherlands and the game appears as available soon in my 3DS shop. Is there any estimate on when it will be available for my country? I am very excited to play this game and have indeed been waiting long to play.

    Thanks in advance,

    • Hi Joost! Yacht Club Games haven’t announced a release date yet unfortunately, but they previously said that it would release in November – shouldn’t be much longer!

  2. Oh I just read the article wrong.. The release was on the fourth in my head so I assumed the article was about that. Just looking forward to the game!
