Shovel Knight Close To Completion, Nearing Submission

By Ishaan . April 2, 2014 . 11:00am

Shovel Knight is “essentially complete,” developer Yacht Club Games said today in an update on the game’s Kickstarter page. All that remains is to continue the polishing and bug-fixing process until the game is ready for submission.


“These little changes have made huge improvements in these final days,” the team wrote in their update. “It’s so close! As production winds down, we’ll have a stable candidate for each version of the game for submission: and then we can announce a final release date!”


Shovel Knight is in development for PC, Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.

      Their website lists $15, but I don’t know what version that is for, and it may only be a pre-order price.

    That nostalgic gameplay, that hype. I feel it building up in my very bones. Don’t know whether that’s good for my health or not, but these awesome upcoming indie games give me the will to fight another day. Shantae Half-Genie Hero? Mighty No. 9? Shovel Knight? Consider yourselves Day 1 purchased.

    Man I would have been playing this by now. I understand why the delay happened, but I am seriously looking forward to this.

    I really enjoyed this game at Comic Con. I’ve been looking forward to it, but I don’t mind the delays. Quality is always a worthy concern.
