Hooray, I was just complaining that we've heard nothing about the game's upcoming DLC thus far!
They also hinted in today's backer update that Nintendo systems will be getting exclusive content of their own, presumably along the lines of the boss fights exclusive to PlayStation (Kratos) and Xbox (Battletoads).
I played the first level of Shovel Knight the other day and thought it was pretty solid. Definitely like an old Capcom game running on a souped up NES of some kind. I didn't run out and buy it, but it would definitely scratch that platformer itch if I didn't already have a bazillion platformers in my backlog to play.
IT HAS A MANUAL?! It's pathetic how happy this makes me. I miss the days of manuals.
Me too. It feels like something is missing when I crack open a cool new game and there's no manual inside. I still enjoy flipping through instruction booklets full of tips, artwork, and colorfully written text. Not every booklet has those things, but the good ones do!
Shovel Knight was one of my favorite games of last year, so I'll definitely buy a boxed copy that comes packaged with a neat manual and extra content.
I've actually regretted choosing the Wii U version over 3DS, so I'm totally going to get the physical release.
Let's see... I've backed this game on Kickstarter, purchased it on Steam for three of my friends, and now I'm buying it again for my handheld. I will have officially purchased more copies of Shovel Knight than Super Mario Bros 3 now.
