Hey Shovel Lords!! The EU/AU release of Shovel Knight is coming soon, and as a thank you for enduring the long wait, we’d like to treat our loyal European, Australian, and New Zealand fans to a Cross Platform Purchase Discount!

Here’s how it works: if you buy Shovel Knight on the 3DS or Wii U on the EU eShop, you’ll get a discount for purchasing it on the other platform! That equates to more money in your pocket that you can use to buy anything you want! ( like maybe some of our great Shovel Knight Merchandise!! ). But act quickly! The promotion will only last through 2014!

For those who don’t know, each version is definitely worth picking up! The Wii U comes with Miiverse support through the Digger’s Diary, Off-TV Play with the GamePad, and supports the Wii U Pro Controller, Wii Remote, Wii Remote + Nunchuck, Wii Classic Controller, and Wii Classic Controller Pro. Oh boy that’s a lot of input options! The 3DS version has eye-popping stereoscopic 3D, the StreetPass Battle Arena, and Play Coin support. Having Shovel Knight on the go or on your huge TV at home both provide an amazing experience – be sure to take advantage of the discount!

Stay tuned for more news on the specifics of this promotion. And sorry, but for the time being, this promotion is for EU and AU regions only.
