Not really it is called playing the game.

I'm really unsure if I get the 3DS or the Wii-U version ... do anybody know what are the diferences? the 3ds seems to have a nice streetpass feature

The Wii U version seems like it has similar message system to Dark Souls or ZombiU

not sure what else though

Beyond Good and Evil 2 better be happening! In the meanwhile though, here's a fun little Let's Play of the original. Think you'll like the game if you like Zelda!

Getting the 3DS version for the 3D layers on those beautiful backgrounds. Also the pixel graphics work very nicely with the 3DSXL display.

WIll probably pick up the 3DS version but man this is game is everything I dislike about Modern indie games. Its a 2D retro inspired platformer. I love the 16 bit era as much as the next guy but why are only Platformers the only thing that gets made by indies. Where's the fighters, rpgs, and beat em ups.

WAT!

If this was any other indie game ever, I would have agreed, but this particular retro inspired platformer intrigues me more than any before it.

Well, in this case it's being made by ex-WayForward staff. They basically specialize in platformers.

And it's not another puzzle platformer so it's already ten times better than most indie platformers. Seriously, action platformers will always be better than puzzle platformers.

I don't understand this delay for EU at all - why not release the game and patch-in the rest of the languages at later date. And now we have a nonsense with waiting god knows how long with the game actually being released everywhere, except Nintendo platforms in Europe.

After watching few gameplays I'm hyped for the game and can't wait for it to hit WiiU.

3DS Wishlist: Kirby TD, Smash, Pokemon AS, Fantasy Life, Persona Q, Etrian Odyssey Untold
Wii U (Playing): Mario Kart 8, Wind Waker HD, Monster Hunter 3U, DKCTF, Zombi U, Shovel Knight
Wii U Wishlist: Bayonetta 2, Hyrule Warriors, Smash

Shovel Knight is trending. I don't know why but...good.

Beyond Good and Evil 2 better be happening! In the meanwhile though, here's a fun little Let's Play of the original. Think you'll like the game if you like Zelda!

9.0 from IGN's Moriarty. Looking forward to some 10's! Downloading the second it comes on 3DS!

Considering IGN appears to have brought back the arbitrary "out of 100" system, I'm surprised they didn't give it more than a 9.0, especially after calling it the best game released in 2014. But then again, that's why I don't give much weight to scores. Anyways, nearly everything about the game sounds good. Only little niggle the reviewer noted was a lack of enemy diversity, but I could easily get over that.

DOWNLOADING NOW

Edit: Downloaded... Why is B confirm and A back? I hate when games do this on Wii U. This isn't even on Xbox or Playstation so why aren't the controls mapped to make sense for Wii U? (Not sure if the 3DS has the same problems)

Edited on by DefHalan

People keep saying the Xbox One doesn't have Backwards Compatibility.
I don't think they know what Backwards Compatibility means...

Guess I'm late to the other topic since I thought I was watching this one. Don't care for how they lumped all the versions into one review but I like the review none the less.
