We’ve also been nominated and are winning many other awards! If you see any other Game of the Year Polls, make sure to vote for Shovel Knight! Some of you have already answered the call! The Last of Us has earned over 200 game of the year awards… think we can beat them?
This Year, Give the Gift of Shovel Knight!
It’s gift-giving season, and we have heard that many of you would like to give Shovel Knight to friends and loved ones. We wholeheartedly recommend this, but there is just no good way to wrap up our digital game in present form!! Therefore, we now present to you the Official Shovel Knight Gift Card Holder. Simply print this out on a nice paper or card stock of your choosing, and slip a Nintendo eShop card into the holder. Viola! If you don’t have a card, then just write a nice message inside to let them know they got Shovel Knight!! Check it!
And finally, if you do this… please take pictures and send them to us!! We would love to see your beautiful packages and reactions!!
Stretch Goal Content: Plague Knight Update!
The pedal is to the proverbial metal on Plague Knight! We are working full time on update content (Plague Knight, Body Swap Mode, and Battle Mode!), and it’s shaping up to be amazing. The Plague Knight campaign will be the first content released, and it’s feeling like a whole new adventure already! A new relic system! New characters and bosses! Remixed content! On that subject, we’re going to share a little detail. Mona, who runs the potion minigame in the village, will have a vastly expanded role.... Here is a peek at the design process so far!
Kickstarter Rewards - Adventures in Postage
We’ve almost entirely vanquished the mighty task that is Kickstarter Rewards! After sending out packages rapid fire, non-stop, we can finally move around the office again! Mistakes and moves can happen and so we have had a handful of packages bounce back to us. We’ll continue to contact bounced package backers via email to straighten out the details. If you’re checking your mailbox and wondering where your rewards are then check your inbox instead! Here are a few notes on remaining rewards:
- Posters - We have these in hand and will be sending them out within the week. They’re tubed up and ready to go!
- Artbook (digital and physical) - This one will not be released until all new art for the Stretch Goal Updates has been made. New knights, objects, places, concepts, and more await. We also have an extra special surprise lined up, so keep an artistic eye out for this one!
Shovel Knight Digs into the Playstation platforms!
Maybe you haven’t heard the exciting news, but Shovel Knight is branching out on to other platforms for adventure. Early next year, Shovel Knight will make his debut on Playstation platforms: PS3, PS4, and PSVita! Along with this extremely exciting development in the legend of Shovel Knight, a guest character that you are all familiar with will be meeting our stalwart, blue knight: Kratos from the God of War series!
