Shovel Knight is digging its way back into the news! This time, in a more physical manner. As we all know, Shovel Knight is getting a retail release this October on Playstation 4, Xbox One, Wii U, and 3DS. However, what we just learned during the Nindies@Night event that Shovel Knight is also getting an Amiibo. That’s right, Shovel Knight will be the first indie game character to receive an Amiibo and the Amiibo functions will be exclusive to Wii U.

Nintendo’s PR today was loaded with some information. Along with the release date for Fatal Frame, we also learned a release date for another title that’s already out in Japan and will be out very soon in PAL territories. That game is Devil’s Third and we can now expect to the see the game December 11th in North America. Furthermore, unlike Fatal Frame, Devil’s Third will see both a digital and physical release.
Here’s 30 minutes of online gameplay for your viewing pleasure from NiNTENDOMiNATi0N:
During E3 this year, there were several titles that were missing from Nintendo’s lineup. Among those games was the newest entry in the known survival-horror series, Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water. While the game released last year in Japan and has been known to be coming out in Europe for some time now, in North America, fans are left wondering what’s going on.
Well I got some good news and some bad news. The good news is, Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water received a release date of October 22 for this year and will be $49.99. It will also be free to start, allowing players to download and play the first chapter and most of the second chapter with no cost.
Unfortunately, that brings us to the bad news. Unlike Japan and Europe, the game is an eShop exclusive and won’t see a physical release. You can either buy the full game directly from the eShop or purchase it in game via DLC. It was speculated last month that the game would be digital only when the eShop symbol appeared next to the game on Nintendo’s site. It seems to be true now.
During the Pokemon World Championships, fans received some good and unexpected news. Pokken Tournament will be getting a world-wide release on Wii U in spring 2016. This announcement came in the way of a trailer that you can see below.
Since the announcement of Bandai Namco working on a Tekken-style Pokemon fighter, fans have been clamoring for a Wii U release. The game was released first in arcades in Japan earlier this summer to work on balancing and bugs in a real world environment before they brought it to console. Last month, Bandai Namco announced that they’ll be doing the same style testing at Dave & Busters in the US.
The holiday season is approaching and with it, we’re beginning to get some release dates. Today’s release date comes in the way of the 3DS RPG and spiritual successor of the Saga games, Legend of Legacy. Atlus has announced that they’ll be releasing the game in North America, October 13th. Unfortunately, there’s no word on a European release.
To take it a step further, Atlus has announced a launch edition for the game. The launch edition includes a 40-page hardcover art book and a 10-track soundtrack CD, all in a 6″ x 8″ box. The launch edition will come at no extra cost. This is great for those who are pre-ordering and definitely sweetens the deal of picking this one up.
Rodea: The Sky Soldier has had a lot of ups and downs. The game was originally developed for Wii and was really far in when Wii sales had a massive drop and the project went silent. Luckily, the project moved to Wii U and NIS America announced they picked up localization earlier this year. Since then there’s been quite a bit of news including a release date, a delay, a special edition, and the Wii version included with the launch Wii U version.
Well, here’s some more news. Tillman from Nintendomination released a new video of the game. Before the gameplay started, he broke the information that the game has been delayed again due to some “tiny problems with localization”. We can now expect to see the game in North America November 10th and Europe November 13th.
There’s some good news though. The first run edition on Wii U is also getting a reversible cover. Now you can swap between the Wii U cover and a Wii cover. On 3DS, the launch edition will now include the 10-track soundtrack.
It looks like Mighty No. 9 is slipping out of its September release date. Furthermore, it’s being pushed back into 2016. This news first started coming when retailers stopped listing it as a September release and switched it to a generic 2016 release.
This is even more unfortunate because, according to developer Keiji Inafune, the game was pretty much finished back in January of this year and they’ve only been working on porting it to other platforms since then. That said, Mighty No. 9 is still going to release on 10 platforms, so it would make sense that porting would take some time
