Looks fun. I'll most likely get it for 3DS.

it will be the same game in all 3 consoles and it looks quite fun so I will prefer the portability that the 3DS version offers.

Now that this game is out, does anyone honestly think it is worth $15 (or $16 if you live in Canada)? It has been critically well-received, though certain websites such as Gamespot lament the fact that the game is to repetitive to warrant replaying. This latter point would be decisive in my not buying this game until it goes on sale, as I feel this game would be overpriced if it is not worth playing through multiple times, especially when it lacks any online mode. Has this concern deterred anyone here from buying Shovel Knight or do you guys think it is indeed worth the full price?

I don't give a crap, I helped fund it thru Kickstarter, so I only spent $10 but I think it's worth it.

Gamespot doesn't know what they're talking about half the time.

I would never take a review by them seriously.

The game is far from repetitive.

Good to know some of you think the price tag is warranted. I guess my main gripe w/ the title is presently the price, as I have always had reservations about spending more than $10 on a 3DSware title.

I ended up finishing the game 3 times (Had to get the "impossible" achievement and a couple others) and then beating it some more using the "cheats" that the developers put in. By far one of my favorite games this year.

Really late to the game here. I bought this game on my Wii U AND 3DS, beat the Wii U version about a month ago, freaking fantastic game all the way through. Great music, good level design, excellent game mechanics, wonderful and memorable character design, just all around a game to remember. In fact, dare I say, it's probably one of my new favorite games of all time!

Also, there's this article about how the game differs from the NES, which it clearly takes a lot of inspiration from:

http://www.gamasutra.com/blogs/David...vel_Knight.php

And another article about game sales:

http://yachtclubgames.com/2014/08/sales-one-month/

Regardless, if you haven't gotten this game yet, go get it now, it's worth it!

This game needs to be re-named to Dark Souls 3, so many damn pit deaths.

The game is getting a physical release on Wii U, 3DS, Xbone, and PS4.

Is anyone getting it in physical format?
