Last year, a game called Shovel Knight came out, and it astounded both gamer and reviewer alike with its version of an old-school platforming adventure game, mixed in with some deep story and plenty of gameplay mechanics. For everything it did though, it didn’t do one “key” thing. It was never sold physically, only as a digital download. Now, the creators of Shovel Knight, Yacht Club Games, has announced on their website that that is going to change…
“It’s been a year since Shovel Knight dug into the hearts of people everywhere. Can you believe it? With more than 700,000 copies sold and over 100 awards including many Game of the Year accolades, Shovel Knight’s phenomenal success is something we never dreamed possible. Now, we’re ready to take the next step: into the REAL WORLD!!”
Yep, Shovel Knight is coming to retail stores this October, with copies of the game being released on 3DS, Wii U, Xbox One, and PS4.
Now, what will be in the game?
“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 game will also allow you to receive the free updates that’ll be released once they are done. So all in all, this is the complete Shovel Knight package.
