    I think it will do OK, but most people who really wanted the game already got the digital release

    Now only if Capcom would release Dual Destinies as a physical copy, I'd be the happiest guy alive.

    I waited to get SK on Vita thinking it would be done justice on the nice screen and... I was right. I will probably keep my digital download. I have no need for a physical copy, as cool as it might be.

    I already have the digital version on 3DS, but I might buy a physical copy for PC and install it on my HTPC, since it does have a multiplayer feature.

    Its even coming out for that piece of garbage console Wii U why not the Vita?


    Everyone has it digital but a Physical copy is even better which seems like the developers rewarding us with a bonus if u will....also Vita version wouldn't of hurt either

    Hmm, it may make me buy it. It's better to own games than licenses.

    They looked at the digital sales and couldn't justify a physical release for that platform. They don't have anything personal against Vita I'm sure.

    Retail is very risky and you don't want to get caught with unsellable inventory. Yacht Club is self publishing this, their first game, so they can't make any mistakes if they want to continue their retail partnerships.

    ... I'm going to pick this up for the 3ds I guess. It'll be nice shelf candy at least. $20 for retail doesn't sting that bad either.

    Somewhere you can never find.
    Since when did shovel knights get a DLC Expansion, and a free one at that. Just another more reason tempting me to update my wii u.

    Have some updates. (excuse my double)

    -it appears the release has been postponed to Nov 3rd for 3ds/ps4/wiiu.
    -price increase $20-$25. (in US)
    -Also, I can't find the xbox one version in any of the online listings for any retailer anymore. (tried 5 major ones)
    Pretty good indication it got nixed.

    They're self publishing but I think it's mostly because of the plague knight expansion was running late. They wanted to get that in the retail release.

    Poor Xbone :(
