Shovel Knight to be released on June 26th

Shovel Knight is an old-school, 2D side-scrolling, platform game and oh man, am I excited! This humble tale started last year on Kickstarter where a knight and his trusty shovel (plus a very impressive trailer) surpassed their quest for funding 415% over the original goal.

Despite being 8-bit style the game has a wide range of inspirations from both older and newer generations. These include Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse, DuckTales, Super Mario Bros. 3, the Mega Man series and even U.N. Squadron and Dark Souls.

Can you dig it?

June 26th for Wii U, 3DS, and Steam!
