Yacht Club Games just passed along the good news, Shovel Knight will release March 31st! Really looking forward to some shovel swinging action in this chunky looking retro 2d platformer.

"Shovel Knight is a sweeping classic action adventure game with awesome gameplay, memorable characters, and an 8-bit retro aesthetic created by Yacht Club Games. You play as the eponymous Shovel Knight, a small knight with a huge quest. Shovel Knight has come to this valley with two goals: to defeat the evil Enchantress and save his lost beloved. He wields a ShovelBlade; a multipurpose weapon whose techniques have now been lost to the ages. Always honest and helpful, Shovel Knight is a shining example of the code of Shovelry: Slash Mercilessly and Dig Tirelessly!"

Shovel Knight is also being featured in the first issue of Nintendo Force, a faux magazine that claims to showcase much of the new game. Hopefully they will make this available for people that order the game or for free as I totally want to read it. Shovel Knight will drop March 31st on PC, Mac and Linux.

I'm finally getting around to watching the new trailer. Wow. It looks even better than it did. I was already stoked, but now I'm counting the days.

And the music! Oh man, I love the music.
