Yacht Club Games will be offering a neat cross-platform discount to all European and Australian fans looking to purchase Shovel Knight when it hits both regions. As a special thanks for being so patient, Europe and Australia will already receive an exclusive 3DS theme of the game’s eponymous hero when it releases this month. But on top of that, fans can look forward to a wonderful 33 per cent discount if one version has already been purchased. So that means you can purchase the Wii U version and grab a nifty 33 per cent off the 3DS version in the eShop, and vice versa.
However, the studio says the promotion will only last until the end of 2014 for those in Europe, Australia and New Zealand. Yacht Club Games clarifies in their blog post that the promotion is only available in the aforementioned regions and will not be available in the US. Will you be looking to pick both versions up? Let us know in the comment section below. Shovel Knight is rumoured to release on November 6, but Yacht Club Games has yet to confirm the date.
Hey Shovel Lords!! The EU/AU release of Shovel Knight is coming soon, and as a thank you for enduring the long wait, we’d like to treat our loyal European, Australian, and New Zealand fans to a Cross Platform Purchase Discount!
Here’s how it works: if you buy Shovel Knight on the 3DS or Wii U on the EU eShop, you’ll get a discount for purchasing it on the other platform! That equates to more money in your pocket that you can use to buy anything you want! ( like maybe some of our great Shovel Knight Merchandise!! ). But act quickly! The promotion will only last through 2014!
