The wait is finally over. Shovel Knight is here!

The Wii U eShop has quite a few new titles available this week. Shovel Knight is undoubtedly the most-anticipated game of the bunch, a retro-style platformer from former members of developer WayForward. The other major releases are Wii Sports Club Boxing and Wii Sports Club Baseball. There are also quite a few smaller games hitting the eShop, but information on them is scarce.
