Shovel Knight Is One Step Closer To Release



Shovel Knight is a step closer to release, Yacht Club Games announced this past weekend. The testing and bug-fixing process is complete, and the platformer is in the process of being submitted to platform holders, where it will be screened one last time to ensure everything works as required.


Should no further issues be found, the game will be issued a release date soon. In the meantime, Yacht Club are waiting to hear back.


Shovel Knight is a 2D platformer being developed by a group of former WayForward employees. The game is inspired partly by Mega Man and partly by Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, among other titles.


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