Shovel Knight, the upcoming platformer by Yacht Club games has been slightly delayed, the development team announced in a recent progress report on the game.
“This update is to let everyone know that Shovel Knight will be missing March 31 by a few weeks to make sure it’s a world class experience, and can release on all platforms simultaneously,” Yacht Club wrote in their updated.
“This isn’t a major delay, or a long one; it’s simply a stretch of time to get everything polished and aligned. While major development is quickly drawing to a close, there are still some external factors, like submission preparation, which need a little bit more breathing room before the game goes live.”
At present, the team is focusing on the following aspects of the game:
- Dialogue and scripted events are being finalized
- Finishing touches put on level design for the final levels
- Overall game balancing
- Platform specific standards so everything runs smoothly on your system of choice!
- Testing, testing, testing… on all platforms!
Shovel Knight is in development for PC, Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, although Yacht Club have mentioned their intent to bring the game to other platforms at a later date.
