Shovel Knight the critically acclaimed indie game is digging it’s way onto PlayStation Vita.
Via PlayStation Blog;
“Shovel Knight is a sweeping classic action adventure game with awesome gameplay, memorable characters, and an 8-bit retro aesthetic. It’s a hot mashup of new and old that may remind you of Mega Man, Castlevania, or Dark Souls! You play as the eponymous Shovel Knight, a small knight with a huge quest. Shovel Knight has two goals: to defeat the evil Enchantress and save his lost beloved. He wields a Shovel Blade: a multipurpose weapon whose techniques have now been lost to the ages. Always honest and helpful, Shovel Knight is a shining example of the code of Shovelry: Slash Mercilessly and Dig Tirelessly!
But, between Shovel Knight and his beloved stands a cadre of villainous knights. These terrible foes, known as The Order of No Quarter, have been dispatched to prevent Shovel Knight from reaching the Enchantress, and will pursue their mission at any cost.”
The game will feature cross-save between all three platforms, and also announced was Kratos from the God of War series making it into the game as what looks to be a boss.
Check out a trailer below.
Shovel Knight is expected to release sometime in 2015 for the PlayStation Vita. For more on PSX and the PlayStation Vita stay here on The Vita Lounge.
