Yesterday, Yacht Club Games posted an update on their KickStarter page regarding their upcoming game Shovel Knight. Along with some progress on the Propeller Knight stage, they also provided a neat Papercraft Shovel Knight for people to print out. The designs were made by Christopher Beaumont, who is responsible for Cubeecraft.
In addition, Yacht Club Games revealed a new character to do battle with. The Black Knight (not to be confused with the other Black Knight) will serve as Shovel Knight’s main rival, constantly trying to defeat him in battle. They confirmed that he would be a wandering boss, similar to the Hammer Bros. from Super Mario Bros. 3. He’s supposedly as powerful with the Shovelblade as Shovel Knight is. He also has a squeaky voice, so good luck trying to take him seriously.
Shovel Knight will be available on the PC, 3DS, and Wii U with an expected release sometime in September of this year.
