Shovel Knight Dig launches in late September

Yacht Club Games have amassed a dedicated following over the years thanks to their work on the Shovel Knight series as well as their consumer-friendly practices. Ahead of the studio’s next big game ‘Mina the Hollower’ the team is releasing a spin-off title set in the Shovel Knight universe: Shovel Knight Dig – the release date for which we now know.

Making the announcement on their blog, the team at Yacht Club Games revealed that “The next epic platformer in the Shovel Knight saga is finally on the horizon! After 4 long years of development, we are proud to announce that our ambitious title, Shovel Knight Dig, will be coming to Nintendo Switch, Apple Arcade, and Steam on September 23rd, 2022!”

For the uninitiated, Shovel Knight Dig is a 2D side-scrolling dungeon-crawling roguelite platformer co-developed by Yacht Club Games and Nitrome, offering a new gameplay experience in the now much-loved Shovel Knight universe.

The official description reads as follows: “When Drill Knight and his dastardly digging crew blast apart Shovel Knight’s peaceful campsite and steal his loot, he grabs his trusty Shovel Blade and starts tunneling after them! Meet new friends and foes, visit strange lands, and outfit yourself in your quest to keep the entire land from collapsing underfoot! Jump, slash, and dig your way down an ever-changing chasm of mystery in Shovel Knight Dig, an all-new Shovel Knight adventure!”
