Shovel Knight trailer appears at your darkest hour

New, comments

The launch trailer for Yacht Club Games' retro-themed 2D side-scrolling platformer, Shovel Knight, features the game's pixelated hero whacking enemies and grabbing items to a heavy metal ensemble.

In Shovel Knight, players take control of the eponymous character on his quest to defeat a villain known as the Enchantress. Armed with a shovel, players can dig up treasure and take down enemies with well-placed swipes and scoops. Check out the trailer above for a look at the game's world, levels and more.

Shovel Knight was funded through Kickstarter last year with over $311,000 and the help of more than 14,000 backers. The game launches for Nintendo 3DS, Wii U and Windows PC via Steam June 26, following delays.
