Nintendo Deals & Downloads: Shovel Knight, Castlevania & more

This week’s eShop downloads for both Nintendo 3DS and Wii U include the long awaited Shovel Knight, from Yacht Club Games. If old school 8-bit platformers like Mega Man are your jam, you’ll probably want to pick this one up for $14.99 either on the Wii U or the Nintendo 3DS. Our review of the game is forthcoming, so be sure and check that out soon.

Aside from Shovel Knight this week, there are plenty of other releases and sales to tide you over as the summer just starts.
