Shovel Knight broke onto the scene and became an indie sensation in a way that few games ever can be. The shovel-wielding knight just didn’t stop, as he popped up in all kinds of places, and at the beginning of the year developer Yacht Club Games said he wasn’t done. And that has now come to fruition, as a new spin-off, Shovel Knight Dig, was announced today.
The game is a collaboration between Yacht Club Games and Nitrome. It will see Shovel Knight leap into action when Drill Knight begins tunneling underground, threatening to take the entire kingdom down, in the most literal sense possible. While a spin-off, the game will feature a brand new story, characters, art, and a soundtrack, as announced by the developer.
Shovel Knight Dig will launch this December for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC. Below you can also check out the trailer and screenshots that came with the announcement.
