Yacht Club Games was hoping to have its retro-style action platformer Shovel Knight out on 3DS on March 31st.

But now it has announced that it will miss that date.

"Shovel Knight will be missing March 31 by a few weeks to make sure it’s a world class experience, and can [be] released on all platforms simultaneously," the developer revealed.

As Yacht Club mentioned, when Shovel Knight does get another release date, that will apply for 3DS, as well as PC and Wii U.
