Yacht Club Games and VINE have revealed that Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon is in development for Nintendo Switch.
This promises to be an “action-packed puzzle adventure mashup” like no other. Joining your “mysterious guide” Puzzle Knight, you must shovel your way through your enemies, secure new equipment and battle bosses that will be both “familiar and new.”
The tale will deliver endless twists and turns as you quest as your favourite heroes, as well as having the chance to challenge a friend to a head-to-head competition.
“Working with Yacht Club has helped us to leverage resources we wouldn’t have access to otherwise, and helped get the game in front of more people. It’s fun to add to the mythos of Shovel Knight, too,” explains Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon creator Russell Rafferty.
Yacht Club Games designer Sean Velasco adds: “By working together with great devs on new Shovel Knight games, we get many different creative perspectives and cool new designs that push the boundaries of the Shovel Knight Universe! It’s been thrilling to see Pocket Dungeon progress, and we can’t wait to see where Shovel Knight goes next.”
Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2020.
