Shovel Knight Headed to PlayStation Platforms in 2015

Indie Developer Yacht Club Games has announced that Shovel Knight is headed to the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita in 2015.

Shovel Knight is a side-scrolling adventure game with an 8-bit aesthetic that harkens back to classic NES games like Mega Man, Super Mario Bros. 3, and CastleVania. It was originally released on Nintendo Wii U and PC on June 26th, 2014 to almost universal acclaim. MONG’s own Lou Contaldi gave it a 9.4 out of 10 in his review.

Yacht Club Games has also announced a number of new features for the port, including Cross-Save functionality, Twitch integration, and maybe most notably, the addition of an 8-bit style Kratos from the God of War series into the game. Kratos’ role in the game isn’t specified, but let’s hope he’s playable!

My Opinion:

A PlayStation version of Shovel Knight has been rumored for quite some time, so it’s great to see it come to fruition. I already own the game on the Wii U and concur with Lou on his review. It’s a fantastic game and anyone that enjoys a retro game done truly right should give it a go. I just may have to buy it again to get those trophies…
