Most weeks are pretty bland when it comes to the Nintendo eShop new releases. Not this week, though! Yacht Club Games’ long awaited Shovel Knight will be available tomorrow, June 26, 2014. Personally, I can not wait to play this game. It has been described as a Mega Man/Castlevania/Ninja Gaiden like game, with a dash of Zelda 2 thrown in. For a NES fan like myself, it is a no brainer day 1 purchase (helps that I still have some built up eShop credit).
If Shovel Knight is not enough, we have also gotten word that Castlevania 3: Dracula’s Curse will be available tomorrow as well. This is the last NES Castlevania game and it is superb. The music, the gameplay, and the switching of playable characters made this one of my favorite games on the NES. Are you planning on picking up either one of these releases on 3DS or Wii U?
