Shovel Knight sells 1.5 million copies

Yacht Club Games’ excellent Shovel Knight has sold 1.5 million copies as revealed in USGamer. There’s no platform breakdown (3DS was at 29% and Wii U at 17% when the game was at 1.2 million) nor territorial breakdown (Japanese sales are expected to be relatively low although the game and amiibo were both published by Nintendo). Thanks to Nirolak from NeoGAF.
