title update

We’ve briefly touched on Shovel Knight’s unique Wii U and 3DS features in the past. Thanks to Destructoid’s recent interview with Yacht Club Games, more information has surfaced.

On 3DS, players can change their items and view gear without having to stop the action. There’s also the StreetPass Arena, which Destructoid describes as follows:

“You have to collect five gems in five seconds and defeat the other Shovel Knights, but there are no other Shovel Knights. But when you Street Pass someone, your recordings go head to head and you can watch the wild stabs at nothing after the fact.”

The Wii U version of Shovel Knight will also have some unique elements of its own. This version will offer Digger’s Diary messages on the GamePad in every area, somewhat like to Dark Souls – and drawing is allowed as well. Yacht Club Games also intends to bring multiplayer to the Wii U version through a future free update.


In the very near future, BLOK DROP U will be receiving its first title update. While it won’t introduce any additional content, RCMADIAX has implemented a number of changes to improve upon the core experience.

I was recently given the opportunity to try out BLOK DROP U’s impending update. For some quick impressions, head past the break.

Disney Magical World is out today. So to is a patch for the game, which “adds several messages to clarify and optimize your experience”. The 1.1 update weighs in at 520 blocks.


Fuzzy Wuzzy Games has sent out a precheck version of Armillo to Nintendo. It’s another step towards the game’s release, which is expected to take place next month.

Fuzzy Wuzzy shared the status update on Twitter a few moments ago, while also noting that Miiverse integration will likely be added to the game in a future update.

Below are all of the relevant tweets:


Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams’ patch has been submitted for approval, Black Forest Games has confirmed.

As noted by the studio on Twitter earlier today:

At present, Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams does not emit sound when playing on the GamePad. The game’s upcoming patch should address this.


RCMADIAX tweeted out a few more screenshots from BLOK DROP U’s upcoming update. You can find them below.


BLOK DROP U’s first update is almost completed, RCMADIAX has said.

The developer plans to test the patch tomorrow. Assuming everything goes as planned, it will then be submitted to Nintendo on Monday.

RCMADIAX wrote on Twitter:


Retro City Rampage: DX’s first update will launch tomorrow, Vblank Entertainment has confirmed. A trailer for the patch can be found above.


Earlier today, RCMADIAX posted yet another screenshot from BLOK DROP U’s upcoming update. We’re given a look at the new level select menu this time around.

Today’s screenshot is of the new level select menu. You will notice that a yellow star is given to the stages that you have completed and SAVED! That’s right, a save feature is also being added to the game. As always, feedback and comments are welcome! Thanks for the continued support.
