So even though I had a downloaded copy of Shovel Knight already for the Wii U, I wanted to pickup a physical copy because it's such a good game and Yacht Club did such a fantastic job on the retail packaging I have no issue buying it a second time to support such a great developer. I mean seriously, when was the last time you saw a full color manual in a third party game release? I had no idea that the 3DS version is in 3D! Compared to some third party 3DS games the 3D effect in Shovel Knight is well done. The 3D effect is awesome, and with the lower screen acting as your inventory screen I think the 3DS version is the best version of Shovel Knight for all of the platforms it is available on!
Also that it's on a cartridge (in a way) instead of a disc it gives it even more of that old school feel. Hell it even came with a download for the soundtrack. Fortunately I picked up the soundtrack at the Yacht Club games booth at PAX Prime a couple of years ago...
