Shovel Knight's physical release date has finally been decided upon. Yacht Club Games had to push back their expectations when their Plague of Shadows downloadable content took longer in development than expected (the DLC will be packed in for the physical release).

Unfortunately the date for the Shovel Knight Amiibo still hasn't been decided on, but Yacht Club is considering making it available for pre-order.

PlayStation 4 recently got a price cut in Japan (and it will soon receive a price cut in North America as well), boosting its sales from 4,000 to 46,000 in a week and shooting it straight up to the top of the charts. This strong week helped life-to-date sales of PlayStation 4 in Japan reach 1.8 million, which is up from 1.5 million in June. By comparison, Wii U (which launched over a year earlier) has just eclipsed the 2.6 million mark. PlayStation 4 has sold below expectations in Japan, so it will be interesting to see if the lower price point provides long term momentum or just a short boost.
