It has now been released on 12 platforms, garnering review scores ranging from 85-92 on review aggregation site Metacritic.
Yacht Club Games says the titular character has made cameo appearances in over 25 games including Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, while a Shovel Knight board game Kickstarter campaign is currently underway.
The studio is currently working on two Shovel Knight expansions, campaign game King of Cards and local multiplayer offering Shovel Knight Showdown.
