A new Shovel Knight is coming and, no, it’s not another port with a campaign attached


    Shovel Knight is one of those notorious franchises with endless remasters and remakes like Mario Kart 8 and GTA 5. And while a definitive edition is coming out, we’re actually getting an all-new Shovel Knight.

    Shovel Knight will have a sequel after 10 years

    During a special edition of Yacht Club Games, a livestreamed event celebrating the 10th anniversary of Shovel Knight’s release for 3DS/Wii U, the developer said that “a new main Shovel Knight game” is in the works.

    While the announcement came without a title or even a teaser, they did say that we could find clues scattered throughout the previous campaigns.

    For example, the story of Polar Knight and Shovel Knight might finally shed some light. After all, what did this guy mean when he said “I meant what I said?” You should still join us.”

    Play a definitive edition of Shovel Knight while you wait

    As a way to encourage more people to get into the series before the sequel comes out, Yacht Club Games announced the arrival of Shovel Knight: Shovel of Hope DX. They call it the “definitive edition of Shovel of Hope.”

    “It’s our way of preserving the historical functionality of the game, ensuring these elements remain available for future generations of players.”

    If you haven’t played Shovel Knight before and enjoy side-scrolling pixel adventure games, this is the perfect game. In addition to the improved graphics, the game also boasts a couple of new features, such as online multiplayer, over 20 playable characters, and toggleable “tricks.”

    You can make wish list Shovel Knight: Shovel of Hope DX in steam. A release date is expected to be revealed soon.
