      Definitely going to pick the PC version

      Most awesome news!
      Just dreamed about 3DS version and here we go! Are you reading my mind, guys? ;)

    5. Thomas Riddell on

      That's exciting! Not sure which to choose though...

      YESSSSSSSS This is GREAT news! Gonna Loooooooooove this on Wii U!
      Thanks so much!

    7. François Potvin Naud on

      Oh yeah! I was waiting for this!
      This baby won't be in my WiiU soon enough! :D
      The downward attack remind me so much of Ducktales, it's not even funny, it's just awesome. :P

      We need to help get the word out to get amazing stretch goals :D

    9. François Potvin Naud on

      Sorry for the double post, but I just thought of something:
      So... I'm a very big supporter of Nintendo, and as a future game-maker (currently studying), my lifelong dream is to develop a game for a Nintendo console, but I'm really curious about the reasons you are making this for WiiU/3DS as first choices (well, second after PC, but still) when all others usually get Apple/Android/OUYA/others as smaller stretch goals than the promised WiiU stretch goal?
      I recently heard Nintendo had special incentives for Indie devs... Was it enough to make this possible (or at least even more interesting for you)?
      I know you probably can say much about this, but no harms comes from asking. :P

    10. Dire Birdbrain on

      Just what we needed: more shovelware on our Nintendo systems. Seriously though, I own all three options, so now I'll have to think about which one I'd like to play this game on the most. It's hard!

      Pledged the $15. I'll probably use the code to get the Wii U version. Although if reviews are good I'll get the 3DS and PC versions as well.

      Great news about the Wii U version! Raised my pledge accordingly.

      Still nothing about:

      1. Linux support.
      2. Russian localization.

      Oh, thank you i wanted it for my Wii U but now I rather pick up the 3DS's version (Sorry my poor Wii U but my 3DS is can let me play everywhere mostly in the tub :) )

      Thank you so mutch!!!

      Shachihoko on

      Woot, great news! :D

      ... what if we want it on more than just one system, though? (Or would that be when we go ahead and buy it normally for the 'alternate' systems after release, once we've had a chance to play it on the first one and know what we're digging into?)

      Keep up the good work!

    17. Peter Wysoczanski - Obsidan Order on

      Gotta throw more money at my screen now...

    18. Sadie on

      Excellent! I would happily play this on my PC, but there's something about these type of games that, for me a least, demands to be played on a handheld like the 3DS.

    19. davi blight on

      im excited to play it on the 3ds, you just got me to up to $15 tier :)

    20. Stéphane Lemay on

      Great news! I'm still more of a PC fan, so I'll stick to that, and yet...

      Can we have a new pledge level at $20 to get the game for two platforms? Pretty please with a cherry on top? I love my PC, but the 3DS is really convenient and this game sounds like a good match for it.

      I'm upping my pledge from $12 to $15. Now waiting for a $20 for 2 offer. :-)

    21. Chris Gronlie on

      So excited!!!!!
      Just changed my backing from $10, to $15 for this!

      Paul Sensale on

      pledge raised for Wii U!

    23. Craig on

      Also changed my pledge for this announcement, almost half way there guys!

    24. zacH on

      Really excited for this game! Looks like an instant classic. :) A big fan of Virt, too!

      Any chance we'll see a linux release? I'd love to see that happen!

    25. Joseph Le May

      How about Gamestick/Ouya? I'd love to see some sort of Android release.

    26. Joe Odran Doran on

      Up'd my pledge. I seriously want this on Wii U!

    27. Yacht Club Games Creator on

      Thanks for the support everyone! It sounds like all of you are as excited about the WiiU and 3DS announcement as we were, maybe even more so!

      @zacH and others who are wondering about other platforms, check out our FAQ. Our current focus is on the 3DS WiiU PC and Steam (check out our Greenlight page!), but the sky is the limit. We'd love to put Shovel Knight on as many platforms as we can support!

    28. David Lin on

      Just up'd my pledge.

    29. Adam Venezia on

      I bumped up for Wii U!

    30. Julien Castagne on

      Hi guys, what about the stereoscopic 3D on 3DS ? There will be present or not ?
      Thanks for your answer and sorry for my bad english, I hope you'll understand my question...

    31. Andrés Ruiz Bernabeu on

      I can't decide which one will be the lucky one to receive this game: Wii U or 3DS. Playing with the Wii U Gamepad is a very attractive idea, but thinking of handheld gaming and stereoscopic 3D the 3DS version is very attractive too. Both platforms are great for this kind of game, so I think I'll wait for more details in order to choose version.

      Please, Yatch Club Games, make this game happen!

      These kind of videogame studios and initiatives encourages me to continue going after my dream of becoming an indie videogame developer =)

      WesFX on

      I hope the 3D aspect gets care and attention. I know it mainly contributes to the 3DS version, but more attention to parallax-ing elements could make it feel nicer in general.

    33. Matthew W on

      I'm assuming there's no plan for a Vita release? I own all consoles (except Wii U), so it's not really an issue, but I have been on a Vita kick lately and have already found several awesome games to play on it.

    34. Yacht Club Games Creator on

      @Julien Castagne and WesFX : we have every intention of making the game stereoscopic and eyebendingly awesome in the process.

      @Matthew Wilson: the plans are currently for te 4 announced platforms but keep sending in your opinions on the matter, the more support we can raise the more platforms we'll be able to be on!

    35. saiqlo on

      Question: Does this include Japanese versions of these systems?

    36. Kyle Dumouchelle on

      ロボット兵: That is a good question actually. What are the planned release countries?

      Matthew Downey on

      I love you guys so much. THANK YOU THANK YOU for supporting the Wii U and 3DS. I love the looks of this game and I'm extremely happy that I pledged.

    38. Seth Brown on

      PlayStation please. Anything will work, but I'd prefer it on Vita. Most games on 3DS, I'd rather just be on Vita. So I'll be sticking with the PC. And I have no plans for a Wii U anytime soon, but will get a PS4 at launch. So, that'll work too. And I already have a PS3, but with the cell I don't know if you guys would do it.

      I'm so glad you guys are supporting Nintendo consoles! So glad that I'm going to get both Wii U and 3DS versions!

      Anthony on

      Coming out on the Nintendo consoles is awesome. I agree that this type of game belongs on Nintendo. Now i just have to decide what version to get between the WiiU and 3DS.

      Daniel Li on

      Is there a way for us to get it on PC *and* the 3DS? Like... if I pledge $30?

    42. Missing avatar

      Regulith on

      Definitely agreeing with Daniel here, I'd love a 3DS copy of the game as well as my PC one but if I have to choose I'm going with PC. If it's going to be $15 anyway I guess I'll just pick it up when it comes out.

    43. Joshua Speer on

      I'm really hyped for this game! My only question is - why is there no profile / pic for King Knight yet?

    44. Cameron on

      Looks amazing. I'm glad I was able to jump in on supporting this. However, you really need a tier that gives you the option for 2 copies. I'd have supported at a higher level for the ability to have it on my 3DS AND my PC.

    45. Douglas Truong on

      @people asking, they already made an update saying every additional 15 dollars to your pledge gets you an extra copy of the game.

    46. Michael Flowers on

      Thanks for the info, Truong! I'm going to be doing that, my 3DS is going to get lonely so I gotta spread the love.

    47. Titanas on

      Boy, I just wish they had the game on a cartridge and not just digital copies.

    48. Andreas Sunde on

      Best version: NES cartridges. Make a seperate kickstarter if you have to.
