Shovel Knight is a sweeping classic action adventure game with awesome gameplay, memorable characters, and an 8-bit retro aesthetic. It's a hot mashup of new and old! You play as the eponymous Shovel Knight, a small knight with a huge quest. Shovel Knight has come to this land with two goals: to defeat the evil Enchantress and quest for his lost beloved. He wields a ShovelBlade: a multipurpose weapon whose techniques have now been lost to the ages.Always honest and helpful, Shovel Knight is a shining example of the code of Shovelry: Slash Mercilessly and Dig Tirelessly! But, between Shovel Knight and his beloved stands a cadre of villainous knights. These terrible foes, known as The Order of No Quarter, have been dispatched to prevent Shovel Knight from reaching the Enchantress, and will pursue their mission at any cost. If you love games with perfect platforming, beautiful art, infectious music, crazy bosses, humor and levity, and real heart... Shovel Knight is for you!

A nice & awesome game for Nintendo 3DS owners. An amusing and fun game overall. A must have for Nintendo 3DS owners.
Good game , Some of it seems very difficult and challenging fun.
In this physical version, you get:
Physical Edition of Shovel Knight
Physical Manual (very well made quality and presentation)
Plague of the Shadows is a free update once you cleared the game or via cheat code but anyway system will request update first time you inserted the Game card. Probably because Plague of the Shadows
Better keep the manual. Recent gamecard above 2011 printing/release doesnt have physical manual
Really fun to play. It is great to have the option to own a physical version
