After suffering a delay last year, Yacht Club Games has announced that Shovel Knight Dig will launch on September 23rd for Nintendo Switch, PC via Steam and Apple Arcade. Check out the latest trailer below, which features Arin Hanson from Game Grumps and Jirard Khalil from The Completionist along with some new gameplay.
Developed by Nitrome, the story sees Drill Knight stealing Shovel Knight’s loot and descending underground with his crew. With his Shovel Blade and accompanied by Shield Knight, our hero gives chase. Suffice it to say that there’s plenty to discover, from new enemies and regions. Interestingly, levels consist of hand-crafted sections stitched together through “proprietary generation techniques,” seemingly providing a new experience each time.
As you dig deeper, Shovel Knight will gain new upgrades and items. He’ll also utilize new techniques like Speed Shovel in addition to the classic Shovel Drop. Stay tuned for more details and gameplay in the coming weeks.
