"Go get SHOVEL KNIGHT right now."


  

          

this game is amazing
if you like megaman/castlevania style games, this is your jam

hit the 3DS today and i believe the Steam version is out there too.

Graphics solid
Controls extra solid
Platforming is really inventive
Difficulty spike is nice

i'm actually kinda shocked at how good it is. its like creepily balanced and solid.

but yeah, go buy that joint ASAP

if you got a 3DS, the street pass multiplayer is pretty cool on the off chance you streetpass with somebody with the game at some point.

Are they making a Vita version? I'm kinda hesitant to buy downloadable stuff on Nintendo systems because that shit doesn't really transfer over to anything if my 3DS breaks.

they're gonna roll out all the Wii U and 3DS updates first i believe

but yeah, this shit is great. it actually really feels original and doesn't lean on nostalgia like a lot of other indie games.

I liked it a lot. Love the Switch for games like this.
