Shovel Knight Showdown

Shovel Knight became an indie sensation and somewhat of an independent video game icon. It’s been a huge success for Yacht Club Games and has garnered several spin-offs and allowed the company to go into publishing other people’s games. It’s released on just about everything under the sun, but a large bulk of those sales have come from a surprising source.

In an interview with Destructoid, the game’s creator talked about various aspects of Shovel Knight as the company finally begins to wind up their work on the franchise. One of the biggest surprises is probably that one fourth of sales have come from the Switch.

The developer seems about as surprised as everyone else, calling it a “wild” figure. Considering how Shovel Knight has been released on everything in recent memory (and lord knows I mean everything), the fact that such a huge amount came to one of the most recent systems sure is something.
