@truthtellah: Jeepers, had no idea they were keeping people up to date like that. Thanks dude!

Yeah, I'd say that's one of the things they've done quite well. Many Kickstarter updates and stuff like that page. I've been impressed.

I hope you'll get to enjoy it in the UK soon! http://www.pixeljoint.com/files/icons/runloop.gif

Cool! I'm very happy for them.

Anyone got any idea when it's coming to 3DS in the UK?

About a month back, they said translation was coming along for Europe and they were mostly done with ratings. So, as it is their main focus right now, I'd say they're not too far away.

Here is their update page discussing Shovel Knight's international release progress:

At the moment, Europe(include UK) looks like this:

To anyone who has the game on 3DS, how are the controls? I kinda wanna play it on handheld but since a Vita version has not been announced the 3DS is my only option.

They're really good. I got it for 3DS, and I think it's perfect for the handheld. It seems to have been made for Nintendo platforms.

If you like 3D, it also does a good job splitting up the plains of the game. The streetpass stuff is a fun addition, as well. Neither of those were too big for me, though; so, the big draw was how well it played on the 3DS.

Because of this thread, I went back and watched Vinny and Alex playing Shovel Knight.

Man, this game is so good. It explains things well and teaches you with minimal tutorializing. You figure things out by the level design, enemy choice, and incentives to experiment. It's just beautifully well done.

This isn't simply indie gaming done right; it's gaming done right.

@irvandus: a yeah, sure, not saying that it is not deserved, I have a 3ds and love it

I was just really surprised to see that both the 3ds and wiiu sold almost as much as steam, I always half expect steam to just oversell over anything else

Valve did warn them about releasing the game during the Steam Sale. A mostly full price title versus all the super cheap games, but it still got in the top 10 of sales. I'm guessing if it had been in a downtime with few sales, it would have sold even more, but really, it's playing the long game Steam-wise. I imagine it will sell well on Steam for quite some time.

They also heavily promoted it for the Nintendo platforms, and Nintendo helped highlight it. So, it makes sense that it may do better there than you might expect versus being a new game on Steam during the summer sale.

At this point, it sounds like they're only a few thousand away from 200k sales; so, that is pretty cool. Good luck to them on their goal of 1 million!

Going by that profile, Mario is basically Vinny. I'd like to see what the "too many things" Mario's seen in his travels are that keep him from being narrow-minded. Is it just referring to the trippy Mushroom Kingdom stuff or has Mario seen some shit?

You don't want to know what he has seen...

Being semi-serious for a second, I'm pretty sure T. Yoshisaur Munchakoopas is his species, not his formal name. His name is Yoshi the green Yoshisaur.

Characters refer to him as Yoshi and he is marked as Yoshi because that's his name. On Yoshi's Island, there are Yoshisaur Munchakoopas like Yoshi.

So wait? T. would be short for "the" then?

i.e. Yoshi The Yoshiaur Munchakoopas ?

Exactly. Yoshi the Yoshisaur Munchakoopas.

Isn't that a little like someone naming their child Human the Human Being?

Well, he's just another Yoshisaur, but friends, like Mario, probably just called him "Yoshi". He says, "Yoshi!" kind of like how a Pokemon says its own name.

For example, Pikachu is a Pikachu. Yoshi is a Yoshisaur.

The picture of the Yoshi that bigjeffrey posted has one less finger on each of its hands than the picture of the Yoshi used for the character page.

That's all I can contribute to this conversation.

It's clearly a replicant. o_o

The lizard men are... replacing our lizard men.
