Shovel Knight will finally be making its way to PAL territories on 3DS an Wii U this November, developer Yacht Club Games has confirmed.


The developer posted an update on the game’s Kickstarter page to announce the November release date, despite not offering a specific day yet.

If you’re a backer and reside in Europe or Australia, you will need to hit this link and enter your backer email. Go to the download page, click the voucher link, fill out and submit the form. You will be receiving your copy when the game is released in November.

The reason the developer is doing that is because there’s no way for them to know the location of their backers.

The 3DS and Wii U versions of the game have unique multiplayer features. A feature called StreetPass Arena allows 3DS owners to compete with each other in an interesting way. Any user can record five-second gameplay clips of them collecting in-game items or battling etc.. These clips will later be pitted against each other and the winner will get some gold.

On Wii U, the game uses the Game Pad to let users leave hints for each other.
