'Shovel Knight' (ALL) Coming To Retail

by Rainier on July 1, 2015 @ 12:16 a.m. PDT

Shovel Knight is a sweeping classic platform adventure game with awesome game play, memorable characters and an 8-bit retro aesthetic.

You play as the eponymous Shovel Knight, a small knight with a huge quest. Shovel Knight has come to this land with two goals: to defeat the evil Enchantress and quest for his lost beloved. But between Shovel Knight and his beloved stands a cadre of villainous knights. These terrible foes, known as The Order of No Quarter, have been dispatched to prevent Shovel Knight from reaching the Enchantress, and will pursue their mission at any cost!

With more than 700,000 copies sold and over 100 awards including many Game of the Year accolades, Shovel Knight’s success is something we never dreamed possible. Now, we’re ready to take the next step: into the REAL WORLD!!

The physical version of Shovel Knight contains everything we’ve released so far. First, there is the original Shovel Knight campaign with all the content you know and love! Also included is Shovel Knight’s first content update: Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows. Finally, there’s a full-featured Challenge mode with more than 50 crazy challenge levels to explore!

The wait for Plague of Shadows is almost over! This free update will definitely hit digital platforms before the boxed version.

Of course, like the digital version, every boxed version will also receive FREE future updates as they become available:

  • Specter Knight’s Campaign – A full campaign starring the shadowy scythe spinner!
  • King Knight’s Campaign – A crazy campaign with the gilded goob himself!
  • Battle Mode – Duel with up to 4 players as your favorite heroic or villainous knight! (Wii U/PS4/XB1/PC exclusive)
  • Body Swap Mode –  Did you ever wish Shovel Knight was a lady, or Shield Knight was a dude? Well, now you’ll be able to change them all around, along with the rest of the cast!

Oh, and one more thing: every boxed copy of Shovel Knight will include a lavish instruction booklet similar to the Kickstarter reward. No 2-page inserts here! You deserve a full manual, to hold in your hot little shaking hands and pore over as you wait to get home!

Pre-Orders should be live at your favorite retailer: Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Target, Gamestop, Amazon...you name it! To make as big of a splash as possible, and to let retailers know that they need to stock up, you should definitely pre-order now!!

Shovel Knight will be available on 3DS, Wii U, PS4, Xbox One, (PC - Europe only) for $19.99 MSRP.
