Yacht Club Games and VINE have confirmed a release date for Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon on Nintendo Switch.
“We’re ecstatic to announce that Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon will launch on December 13th! A lot of hard work, joy, tears, dancing, and love went into this game’s 3-year development… it truly was a passion project to bring a new type of puzzle game to the world, and we can’t wait for you to all experience its every moment,” Yacht Club Games enthused in a blog update.
“Hopefully, you have as much fun playing as we had in the development. We’ll continue to post more info about our puzzle action-adventure as launch approaches so make sure to check back frequently!
“We have one more fun thing to reveal today! We loved developing and playing this game so much, we just can’t get enough, and we don’t think you’ll be able to either! That’s why we’re planning on releasing an expansive slate of downloadable content (3 DLC packs!) over the next year or so. Much more will be revealed soon after release.”
The game 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.
Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 13th December 2021.
