Shovel Knight

The classic adventure game Shovel Knight from developer Yacht Club Games is due to release next week, according to a recent tweet from Microsoft’s Major Nelson. He first tweeted the game would release this week, but has since corrected himself.

With an 8-bit aesthetic and classic adventuring, Shovel Knight has already been greeted with critical acclaim upon releasing on Nintendo platforms and PC. No official date has been announced for next week, as the game has just passed certification at Microsoft, but one can likely assume we’ll be seeing Shovel Knight next Wednesday or Friday based on the pattern of digital releases on Xbox. We have reached out to Yacht Club Games for further comment and an exact date, and we will update this post accordingly.
