Shovel Knight

Gamers in Europe, Australia and New Zealand have been champing at the bit to get their grubby mitts on Shovel Knight for some time now. We know Yacht Club Games is doing its best to get the PEGI and OFLC ratings sorted out and we're expecting some good news on that front very soon.

In the meantime as a sweetener to thank the PAL regions for their patience, the Yacht Club gang have announced a cross platform discount for Shovel Knight in European and Australian regions. If you buy the game on either the Wii U or 3DS you'll be treated to 33% off the price of the other version of the game. Why buy both? Well the Wii U version has lovely Miiverse integration and of course the 3DS version makes decent use of 3D effects and offers 'StreetPass Arena' battles. Why wouldn't you want to own both?

Are you planning to buy only one version of Shovel Knight on Nintendo platforms or has this offer tempted you to double dip? Let us know with a comment below.
