STEEL THY SHOVEL! We’re pumped for this collaboration and Shovel Knight will be making an appearance in Gunvolt 2 as a boss fight! Check out a little teaser below:
Shovel Knight just turned two years old! With more than one million copies sold worldwide, a physical release, an amiibo, two crazy cameos, and so much more…we couldn’t be more honored to see Shovel Knight played everywhere and hear the love everyone has given the game. Over the last few years we’ve done our best to share details, info, and insights for both developers and fans everywhere. We want to create, share, and play even more cool games … and so now we’re taking it to the next level:
Welcome back, Shovel Team! Did you miss us? We missed you! We’ve remained hidden away, hard at work on new Stretch Goal Updates and more but figured this would be a great time to check in on where we’re at! Lot’s of animated images ahead!
We’re excited to share some amazing news! A major milestone! Our quest to a million copies sold is complete! In December 2015, Shovel Knight surpassed one million copies sold total, and as of this February, Shovel Knight passed a million copies sold only digitally! Thank you everyone for your unending support. We couldn’t be happier that Shovel Knight is still loved and played years after its release. To celebrate it crossing a million, we’ll be discounting Shovel Knight at 33% off for a week at various times this month on every store it’s released on (Nintendo Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, Sony PS4, Sony PS3, PlayStation Vita, Xbox One, Steam, GOG, Humble Store, and Amazon Fire TV). If you haven’t picked it up, now’s the time! We’re also launching some new PS4, PS Vita, and Nintendo 3DS themes to join in the celebration! It’s like a whole new suit of armor for your system.
We hope to share a little bit of what we’ve learned over the past couple years of both making a game like Shovel Knight and maintaining it after release. As we’ve done in the past, below you’ll find a breakdown of Shovel Knights sales. Hopefully players and developers alike can find something to learn from this info!
(For the historians, all info on this page is as of April 1st, 2016.)
To celebrate the most momentous milestone of one million Shovel Knight sales, we’ve decided to release a whole bunch of new themes on all sorts of systems! Each of these will be released at different, wacky times, so make sure to check the dates if you’re planning to pick one up!! What can you expect? Well, take a browse below.
