Now Available – Shovel Knight!


Sure to be an instant classic, Shovel Knight (and his companions) make their debut on Xbox One!

Shovel Knight is a sweeping classic action adventure game with awesome gameplay, memorable characters, and an 8-bit retro aesthetic created by Yacht Club Games. You play as the eponymous Shovel Knight, a small knight with a huge quest. Shovel Knight has come to this valley with two goals: to defeat the evil Enchantress and save his lost beloved. He wields a ShovelBlade; a multipurpose weapon whose techniques have now been lost to the ages. Always honest and helpful, Shovel Knight is a shining example of the code of Shovelry: Slash Mercilessly and Dig Tirelessly!

However, 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 at any cost!

Exclusive to the Xbox One version: The Battletoads join the fray!

We took an early look at the game along with developer Yacht Club Games a couple weeks ago (note: this is not the final version of the game – we’ll be checking that out later on this week)
