Shovel Knight Dig | Featured

Felicitous news for my fellow fans of shovelry today! The good folks at Yacht Club Games, in cooperation with Nitrome, have announced the release date for the blue burrower’s next game, Shovel Knight Dig! Best of all, it’s not far away. You can pick up Shovel Knight Dig on Apple Arcade, Steam or Nintendo Switch as of September 23rd!

Unlike the original Shovel Knight, Dig is a more frenetic adventure where you’re constantly digging deeper. Both to survive and to unearth surprising secrets. What has Drill Knight and his cohort wrought, and can you save the day once more?

While I loved the original and enjoyed Pocket Dungeon, I’m personally quite hyped for Dig. Not just because it’s been in development for 4 years, but because this game has rogue-like elements! Procedural generation makes certain each dig will be a little different, and will hopefully keep fans playing for a long time. If you’re not sure how you feel about this, please check out the game description below:

Shovel Knight Dig | Relics

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!

Considering the talent of Yacht Club Games and those at Nitrome (you may know them from the amazing Bomb Chicken), I think it’s safe to say this latest adventure is in good hands. But if you aren’t sure, please watch the hilarious trailer below. And stay tuned to HPP for more exciting announcements from Yacht Club Games!
