We’ve been keeping busy these last couple of months! Tackling all sorts of things…worldwide releases, content updates, amazing collaborations, and much more! Here are a few updates on what we’ve been up to:
How does time pass so fast!? It’s already time for GDC (Game Developers Conference)… and we have big news!
We’re incredibly excited to reveal that Shovel Knight will be coming to Xbox One in April! So many players have been knocking down our door, asking for us to bring the game to Xbox One… we’re so happy to be working with Microsoft to give everyone a chance to play Shovel Knight!
But we’re collaborating with more than just Microsoft! We’ve had the Rare privilege of working with one of the most celebrated studios in gaming. Take a look at the incredible collaboration with Microsoft to ensure the Xbox One version packs a lot of extra punch:
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!
The end of the year approaching means that it’s Game Award season! And wow, so far we have had a great run! To our surprise and delight, Shovel Knight was chosen as Indie Game of the Year at the Game Awards. You can hear our heartfelt acceptance speech here, and we even mentioned our Kickstarter Backers!! We love you guys <3
