Have you wanted more adventure after Shovel Knight: Shovel of Hope, Plague of Shadows, Specter of Torment and the unreleased King of Cards campaign? If you did, you're in luck because an all new Shovel Knight game was recently teased called Shovel Knight Dig! It looks to blend some infinite dungeons rogue level mechanics with the first-rate platforming of Shovel Knight. Shovel Knight Dig is being developed by Nitrome with help by Yacht Club Games and Dig features a very familiar yet fresh new take on the Shovel Knight pixel art style.

No word on the launch date or platforms but 2020 seems likely but when I know more i'll drop the word here.

*An all-new presentation featuring a new Shovel Knight story! 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!
* The first Shovel Knight adventure in glorious high color pixel graphics and sound. Fluid animation, scaling, rotation, and parallax create the most convincing Shovel Knight world yet!
* Every adventure is different! Shovel Knight Dig levels have been meticulously crafted, then stitched together using proprietary generation techniques for infinite replayability.
* Jump, slash, and dig your way in an all-new direction – down! Rely on your trusty Shovel Drop, then dig through huge swaths of dirt with all-new Speed Shovel mechanics.
* Grow in power and wealth as you descend into the depths of the earth. Emerge with untold riches to outfit Shovel Knight further, unlocking permanent items and upgrades to your adventuring equipment.
* New Knights, new characters, and new enemies abound, but fear not! Shovel Knight Dig features Shovel Knight’s signature storytelling, humor, and maybe even some familiar faces..
* Another pulse-pounding soundtrack in a new style by astonishing virtuoso Jake Kaufman!
* The first collaboration between Yacht Club Games and Nitrome, pixel masters!

I played the original campaign and then I’ve been waiting for the whole shebang to release before diving back in for the other campaigns. I’m pretty excited for that. As for Dig? Sure, it looks fun. A very different kind of game.
