Yacht Club Games have shared a new trailer for their upcoming 8-bit Mega Man-inspired platformer Shovel Knight, slated for release this winter. Watch it below.



Shovel Knight has you playing as the Shovel Knight character himself. When Shovel Knight’s lover, the Shield Knight, gets herself in trouble, he sets out to rescue her from the Enchantress and the game’s eight Mega Man-style bosses.


In addition to the Shovel Knight, you’ll also be able to play through the game as three of these bosses as well. Just which ones is being decided upon by community vote.


Shovel Knight is slated for release this winter on PC, Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.

  • It looked a lot like the original trailer, but the second half is where you see a lot of the new stuff. Also, this one is in HD. Shovel Knight is one the few indie games I’m really looking forward too. I hope they manage to release it this year. Oh yea, the Yacht Club games splash screen is awesome.
