Shovel Knight announced for 3DS and Wii U! CAN YOU DIG IT!?

Posted by Yacht Club Games (Creator)

You asked for it. We wanted it. And now, we can finally say it! If funded, Shovel Knight will be coming to Wii U and 3DS!

Wii U and 3DS game codes will be made available to everyone who pledges $15 or more. Upon release, you can choose (1) which version of the game you prefer: Windows PC, Wii U, or 3DS!

Why isn’t the $10 pledge eligible? Developing and releasing console games is more expensive than doing so on Windows PC. We have costs like:

  • We must pay for each Nintendo download code given out. This is the biggest reason.
  • Developing awesome console specific features like the Wii U Gamepad and 3DS dual screen setup!
  • Dev kits and certification requirements.

We are so completely excited to be developing for Nintendo! Because as an 8-bit style game, Nintendo is where Shovel Knight belongs. Now our heritage platform is secured. What platform could be next!?!?

      This game will be funded once more people reads about the Wii U / 3DS support, it HAS to be funded or we will be shoveled to death!
