What’s in the box?!

The physical version of Shovel Knight contains everything we’ve released so far. First, there is the original Shovel Knight campaign with all the content you know and love! Also included is Shovel Knight’s first content update: Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows. Finally, there’s a full-featured Challenge mode with more than 50 crazy challenge levels to explore!

Of course, like the digital version, every boxed version will also receive FREE future updates as they become available:

Specter Knight’s Campaign – A full campaign starring the shadowy scythe spinner!
King Knight’s Campaign – A crazy campaign with the gilded goob himself!
Battle Mode – Duel with up to 4 players as your favorite heroic or villainous knight! (Wii U/PS4/XB1/PC exclusive)

Body Swap Mode – Did you ever wish Shovel Knight was a lady, or Shield Knight was a dude? Well, now you’ll be able to change them all around, along with the rest of the cast!

Oh, and one more thing: every boxed copy of Shovel Knight will include a lavish instruction booklet similar to the Kickstarter reward. No 2-page inserts here! You deserve a full manual, to hold in your hot little shaking hands and pore over as you wait to get home!

This game is said to be one of the best out there so if you have yet to pick up the title, this seems like a pretty great deal.

ADORABLE YOSHI’S WOOLLY WORLD UK COMMERCIAL

Here is an adorable commercial for Yoshi’s Woolly World for Wii U. This new commercial is for our readers in the UK so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for this one on your TV. I am hoping Nintendo decides to advertise this Wii U gem pretty heavily when it’s released here in the States. I am in love with the art style for Yoshi’s Woolly World and it will be a day 1 purchase for me.

Check it to and enjoy.

Here is the intro for the adorable Yoshi’s Woolly World for Wii U. The game has charm to spare and will be welcomed with open arms when it’s released later this year (at least for me in the States). I almost didn’t want to watch because I want to be surprised but I couldn’t resist. If you watch the intro, let me know what you think.

Splatoon Sales Update; 1 Million Sold

Splatoon2_zps837166af

This just in, Nintendo has announced that its all new IP, Splatoon, has sold over 1 million copies worldwide. This is a combination of digital and physical sales for the title. Nintendo has to be thrilled with this number as it is a brand new franchise for them and the game has only been out for a month. Here is what Reggie Fils-Aime had to say regarding the title:

“Ever since Splatoon launched on May 29 in the United States, we’ve seen thousands of people go online to have fun in this colorful, chaotic competition,” said Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime. “This milestone puts us in a nice position as we prepare to launch 11 more exclusive Wii U and Nintendo 3DS games before the end of the year, plus amiibo, digital offerings and games from our third-party partners.”

Impressive numbers Nintendo. Let’s see how this one does over the summer.

Nintendo Boss Reggie Reflects on E3 2015

The good people at Gamespot have sat down with Nintendo of America boss, Reggie Fils-Aimé, and discussed many topics including this years E3. It’s an interesting interview so give it a watch if you’re a Nintendo fan. Although we (and pretty much everyone else) think Nintendo’s E3 was lackluster to say the least, it’s hard to deny that the Wii U seems to be picking up a little bit of steam this year. The console won’t go on to be Nintendo’s best to date but it does have a strong lineup of games headed its way this year and early next. We will see what happens.

Give it a watch and let us know what you think.

SMASH BROS. WII U/3DS – JAPANESE DLC COMMERCIAL

Here is an exciting commercial for Smash Bros showcasing all the new DLC for the game. I love the fact that Nintendo put something like this out and I wonder if they will do something similar around the world.

The new DLC for Smash Bros is available now so head to the eShop and check it out.
