Shovel Knight on 3DS is getting a cross-platform discount in Europe, Australia, and New Zealand
Thanks for your patience
It's a cross-platform discount exclusive to Europe, Australia, and New Zealand that will be available until the end of 2014.
Basically, if you buy Shovel Knight on 3DS or Wii U, you get a 33 percent discount for the game on the other Nintendo platform.
Yeah, it's not as good as PlayStation's cross-platform deals, in which you only buy the game once to get it on all PlayStation platforms, but it's something.
Despite this announcement, Yacht Knight still hasn't given a release date for Shovel Knight on 3DS in Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. It's already out in the US, of course.
It did remind us what the 3DS version has that other platforms don't, though: stereoscopic 3D, a StreetPass Battle Arena, and Play Coin support.
We'll let you know if we hear anything more about that release date.
