Publisher Yacht Club Games and developer Nitrome will continue the legacy of its 2D mascot Shovel Knight with its new game, Shovel Knight Dig.
Shovel Knight Dig is a 2D action platformer where you dig your way downwards to treasure and fight off Drill Knight and his goons. Unlike the first Shovel Knight, this game is in full high colour with fluid animation, scaling, rotation, and parallax. Levels in the game are randomly generated, and music is provided by Jake Kaufman.
Shovel Knight Dig will be out on 23 September for PC, Nintendo Switch, and Apple Arcade. The Xbox and PlayStation versions will be out at a later date.
An all-new presentation featuring a new Shovel Knight story! When Drill Knight and his dastardly digging crew blast apart Shovel Knight’s peaceful campsite and steal his loot, he grabs his trusty Shovel Blade and starts tunneling after them!
The first Shovel Knight adventure in glorious high colour pixel graphics and sound. Fluid animation, scaling, rotation, and parallax create the most convincing Shovel Knight world yet!
Every adventure is different! Shovel Knight Dig levels have been meticulously crafted, then stitched together using proprietary generation techniques for infinite replayability.
Jump, slash, and dig your way in an all-new direction – down! Rely on your trusty Shovel Drop, then dig through huge swaths of dirt with all-new Speed Shovel mechanics.
Grow in power and wealth as you descend into the depths of the earth. Emerge with untold riches to outfit Shovel Knight further, unlocking permanent items and upgrades to your Shoveling equipment.
New Knights, new characters, and new enemies abound, but fear not! Shovel Knight Dig features Shovel Knight‘s signature storytelling, humour, and maybe even some familiar faces…
Another pulse-pounding soundtrack in a new style by astonishing virtuoso Jake Kaufman!
The first collaboration between Yacht Club Games and Nitrome, pixel masters!
