The lights are on
Kickstarter success story Shovel Knight finally has a release date, and it's not too far off.
After missing its March release and announcing it was, "essentially complete," in April, developer Yacht Club Games says Shovel Knight will be available on June 26. That date marks release on all three of the game's announced platforms – PC, Wii U, and 3DS. "We hit some snags along the way and we’re sorry that we couldn’t deliver it sooner, but, hopefully, it will prove more than worth the wait," Yacht Club Games wrote on its most recent Kickstarter update.
Yacht Club Games also revealed the art that will appear on the game's box, which will be coming to backers who pledged $50 are more to the project, which you can see below. Finally, the developer confirmed it will be at E3 with a demo near the Nintendo side of the show. For more about the game, check out some of our hands-on impressions here.

It's been a hell of a wait for this game, but I still think it's gonna be worth it. Can't wait for the 26th.
and on 3DS?!.. Yepppiiiii...!
Good work Yacht Club, can't wait to see a certain group of friends play this perhaps?
Now I just need a date on Teslagrad.
i have been waiting for this game forever. I will be buying this on 3DS and Wii U
I funded this game like two years ago. This has been my most anticipated title for a while. I cannot wait to crack this thing open on the 26th. Just a heads up to all my Wii U lovers out there, the eShop is lousy with solid DLG's right now. Ittle Dew and Scram Kitty being two very solid games amongst the many good games on there.
It's been a long wait for this. Hope it lives up to all the hype, including mine!
This game looks pretty interesting!!! I'm going to have to get it for my 3DS!
Everyone should check out the kickstarter page. This game looks great but some of the best parts are gonna be all the DLC the game made in stretch goals: New Game+, play through the game as 3 of the bosses, a local battle mode including all the bosses! As a backer I'm almost looking forward to the DLC as much as the base game.
Finally! Been waiting on this for so long. I can't wait to play it!
My body is *** ready
I can dig this.
