The time has finally come for Shovel Knight to hit the Wii U and 3DS! You can check out our review here, the differences between the platforms here, and our tips guide here. As for the rest of Wii U land, there's Castlevania III, a Wii Sports Club free trial, BrickBlast U, My Arctic Farm, and My Jurassic Farm. Ubisoft and Atlus are also holding a sale on select games.
On the 3DS side we also have Castlevania III, as well as Cocoro - Line Defender, Hidden Expedition Titanic, Plain Video Poker, Quell Reflect, Skypeace, Toy Stunt Bike, Anonymous Notes Chapter 4, Mysterious Stars: The Samurai, and Anne's Doll Studio: Antique Collection, Lolita Collection, and Princess Collection.
If you missed last week's installment, here it is.
As for what I'm getting, I'll be on my third playthrough of Shovel Knight. If Castlevania III was Cross-Buy, I'd pick that up as well -- sadly, it is not.
