UDON and Yacht Club Games this week officially announced that fans of Shovel Knight will be able to purchase a new art book later this year with Shovel Knight: Official Design Works. The new book will be 150 pages of artwork based on the breakout hit game, Shovel Knight.
The book will collect all the artwork based on the game. The book will feature character art, developer commentary, rough illustrations, concept art, background development images, sprite sheets, full-page promotional artwork, and more. Also included will be comprehensive interviews with the game’s developers.
Yacht Club Games commented in an official press release. “After more than a year of work, it’s finally complete! We here at Yacht Club Games are proud and delighted to realize one of our dreams – a Shovel Knight art book produced by UDON! We genuinely hope you enjoy the never-before-seen concepts and anecdotes detailed within!”
Additionally, the book will also have material from Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows, a major DLC expansion for the game. The book will be available at comic book stores, book retailers, and various online retailers later this August. You can also check out some promotional cover artwork for the book below.
