Recommended Videos


Yacht Club Games has announced that the Xbox One version of Shovel Knight will have an exclusive encounter with the Battletoads when it’s released this April.


“It has been so much fun to bring the radical attitude and gameplay of the NES classic to the Shovel Knight world. If you have ever played Battletoads– we’re pretty sure their extreme adventures left an impression!” writes Yacht Club Games on its website.


The studio also teased that the encounter with the Battletoads will be a “blast,” and encouraged everyone to get speculating as they look over the teasers and promotional images (which you can see below).


Of course, the Xbox One isn’t the only platform that got exclusive content in Shovel Knight. The PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita version gets a boss fight starring Kratos from God of War when it launches on April 21st.
