Shovel Knight

Hey Shovelers and Shovelettes! We’re Yacht Club Games, a new game studio dedicated to creating fun and challenging gameplay! We aspire to both tug at your heartstrings, and delight you with levity and charm. We’re very proud to announce that our debut title, Shovel Knight, will be tunneling its way to PS4, PS3, and PS Vita tomorrow! We hope everyone will enjoy the game!

Here are some cool exclusive PlayStation features you might not know about:

  • Cross buy — Shovel Knight supports cross buy! Buy the game on one PlayStation platform, and you’ll get it on the rest!
  • Cross save! — That’s right! At any time you can transfer your save file between PS4, PS3, and PS Vita. You can make sure you never have to do anything twice!
  • Vita Back Touch — A few easter eggs are littered throughout the game. Try poking the back of your Vita and see what happens!
  • PS4 DualShock 4 Light Bar — We found some fun ways to light up your hands during Shovel Knight’s most dramatic moments. Keep your eyes peeled!
  • Platinum Trophy! — Are you good enough to tackle Shovel Knight’s toughest challenges? Prove it and earn the Platinum!
  • BATTLE KRATOS! — Take up your Shovel Blade against the legendary hero from God of War. Try to find and take him down in Shovel Knight. Maybe he’ll teach you a thing or two about how to fight…

And don’t forget that we’re launching during the Spring Fever Promotion so we’re discounted 10% off for PlayStation Plus subscribers!

We’re so excited to be part of the comprehensive library of games on PlayStation. Be sure to use all of the amazing features on PlayStation when playing Shovel Knight. And don’t forget to hit that Share button every second, so we can celebrate your successes and failures!
