Blog – Catching Up After E3

As most of you are probably already aware, Nintendo’s offerings at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles were pretty much the talk of the show.

This year’s presentation largely expanded the upcoming Wii U library, but plenty more was announced for the Nintendo 3DS, including information about key titles such as Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire, as well as upcoming eShop titles.

Unfortunately, I was unable to keep up with any sort of posting during the E3 week, and missed out on most of the big headlines. As a result, I am going to do my best to post a few of the highlights and resume consistent posting from this point forward.

Stay tuned for some of the big release date announcements, trailers and new information about E3′s biggest Nintendo 3DS games.

Shovel Knight Finally Headed to eShop June 26

The long-awaited indie game Shovel Knight, developed by Yacht Club Games, is headed to Nintendo eShop this month – June 26th, specifically.

Meet the villains of Shovel Knight.

For those who haven’t been following the development of Shovel Knight, the game draws a lot of inspiration from NES-era games such as Mega Man and Zelda II: Adventures of Link. Beyond the 8-bit sprites and MIDI-style soundtrack, the game features side-scrolling platforming action and eight unique bosses that can be dispatched in the order of your choosing.

You may really want to check this one out when it drops – few 3DS eShop games have received the pre-release buzz that Shovel Knight has, which should hopefully be a good sign.
