Shovel Knight gameplay video - Bouncing through the first level

Shovel Knight, the Kickstarted action-platformer from Yacht Club Games, combines a ton of familiar retro mechanics with a few clever, modern takes on the genre. If that sounds like your cup of tea — or if you've already secured a copy of the game by helping its crowdfunding efforts — you can watch us run, scoop and bounce through the game's first level in the video above. For more info on the title, which hits 3DS, Wii U and Windows PCs this week, check out our Overview video below.
