Hey Shovelonians! Believe it or not, we can finally confirm that Shovel Knight will be releasing in Europe and Australia in November for the Wii U and 3DS!! We are working on pinning down the exact day still, but the wait is almost over.
Hey! You there! Shovel Knight is now available on Linux through Steam! No longer must you brave the perils of emulators, virtual machines, dual booting, or what-have-you to do battle against the forces of evil. Now that Windows, Mac and Linux are all released, you can play Shovel Knight on your system(s) of choice! For those who obtained the game through Humble Bundle or GOG, we’ll be uploading new standalone Linux builds later today.
In other news…
Shovel Knight goes international! Now you can play the entire game in English, French, Italian, German, or Spanish! Swap between languages at any time within the Options Menu. Whether you’re playing the game for the first time, picking up a new language, or just trying out a new flavor of the Shovel Knight adventure — we hope you enjoy it! Thanks to the team at Words of Magic for their tireless work in translating the Shovel Knight spirit. Squeezing puns into fixed-width NES font space is no laughing matter!
Version 1.2 is out now on Steam and will be arriving on a platform near you shortly! For more info, check out Update Notes.
