Platform adventure game delivers timeless 2D action, retro style and platform-specific features
Available now for the PC, Wii U and 3DS, Shovel Knight is a classic action adventure game in which you play as the eponymous Shovel Knight, a small knight with a huge quest. Shovel Knight has come to this land with two goals: to defeat the evil Enchantress and quest for his lost beloved. He wields a ShovelBlade: a multipurpose weapon whose techniques have now been lost to the ages.
But, between Shovel Knight and his beloved stands a cadre of villainous knights. These terrible foes, known as The Order of No Quarter, have been dispatched to prevent Shovel Knight from reaching the Enchantress, and will pursue their mission at any cost.
Shovel Knight boasts several unique features on Nintendo platforms. The game includes exclusive Miiverse functionality on Wii U, and the Nintendo 3DS version features both stereoscopic 3D and an exclusive Battle Arena mode using StreetPass.
