Yacht Club Games has announced the Xbox One version of Shovel Knight will have a number of special guests appearances, including Battletoads.
We’re incredibly excited to reveal that Shovel Knight will be coming to Xbox One in April! So many players have been knocking down our door, asking for us to bring the game to Xbox One… we’re so happy to be working with Microsoft to give everyone a chance to play Shovel Knight!
But we’re collaborating with more than just Microsoft! We’ve had the Rare privilege of working with one of the most celebrated studios in gaming.
That’s right! The Battletoads, who debuted on the NES in 1991, are going to be returning in the Xbox One version of Shovel Knight! It has been so much fun to bring the radical attitude and gameplay of the NES classic to the Shovel Knight world. If you have ever played Battletoads– we’re pretty sure their extreme adventures left an impression!
