VIDEO: "Shovel Knight" Platformer is Lookin' Good, Arrives in March

Kickstarter-funded game heads to Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, and PC

Yacht Club Games' Kickstarter-funded Shovel Knight is looking and sounding better than ever. Inspired by games ranging from Mega Man and Castlevania to Dark Souls, the platformer now has a release date that's actually pretty appropriately timed. Shovel Knight is in alpha, and will arrive on Wii U, 3DS, and PC on March 31, putting its launch just a few days after that of Dark Souls II


I didn't think it was possible to want this game as much as that one, but the new trailer makes yet another strong case for Yacht Club's debut as a studio.



Mac and Linux versions are also in the works.
