Surprise Shovelers and Shovelettes! We’re very proud to announce that Shovel Knight will be tunneling its way to PS4, PS3, and PS Vita next year! We’ve had many of you asking for us to bring the game to your Sony platform of choice, and we’re glad to finally give those of you who haven’t been able to play the game a chance to experience the world of Shovel Knight.
We are extremely happy that Shovel Knight can soon embark on his adventure on PS4, PS3, and PS Vita! Shovel Knight’s lovingly pixelated animations and scenery look especially gorgeous on the PS Vita’s phenomenal screen, and the tight action platforming controls like a dream on PS4 and PS3! We look forward to breaking new ground on special platform specific content: back touch implementation, Twitch TV integration, cross-save, and more! It’s our goal for Shovel Knight to feel right at home on your system of choice, so let us know what you think would make for a really neat new feature!
God of War!
Speaking of surprising new additions… this is a big one! We’re very excited and honored to announce that we’ve been working with Sony Santa Monica to feature Kratos from God of War in Shovel Knight! Who better to induct our beshoveled hero than Sony’s own finest? We’ve had a ton of fun trying to authentically capture the raw, awesome energy of a God of War battle in 8-bit form. What brings Kratos to the land of Shovel Knight?! We’ll leave that up to you to figure out, but for now, we’ll let you pore over this teaser GIF for clues…
That’s all we’ve got for today. If you happen to be at the PlayStation Experience in Las Vegas, then don’t hesitate to stop on by, say hello, and give Shovel Knight a try! We’ll also be keeping an eye on the comments below, so feel free to hit us up with your questions, concerns and more, and we’ll do our best to answer!
Oh wait…one more thing. Check out our reveal trailer below. Thanks so much!
