Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon

Remember Shovel Knight: Pocket Dungeon, a roguelite puzzle title announced early last year? It re-emerged during the Nintendo Indie World Showcase and is confirmed to be releasing for Nintendo Switch. New gameplay was also revealed, showcasing just what fans can expect. Check it out below.

Much like Grindstone, Shovel Knight: Pocket Dungeon is a block-clearing puzzler with the twist that the blocks are enemies, obstacles that provide resources and much more. Group together foes to unleash massive combos, gather keys to unlock chests and gather artifacts while attempting to escape the dungeon. Rooms are procedurally generated and bosses, both new and old, will pop up to challenge you.

There are over 10 characters to choose from including Shovel Knight, Shield Knight, King Knight and many more. Along with a Story Mode, Shovel Knight: Pocket Dungeon will also have competitive multiplayer for competing against other players. The title releases this Winter so stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
