After reaching its Kickstarter goals four-fold and greatly expanding its original release on PC with subsequent releases on Mac, Linux, 3DS, and Wii U, Yacht Club Games has been busy with Shovel Knight on their hands, and getting the game ready for release.
Yacht Club Games reached out to a fan’s question on Twitter and confirmed that the studio is expecting Shovel Knight to release in early 2014, as the game’s Kickstarter also explains that the extra donations and support received for the game are going toward “extra polish” and getting the game in a final state for release.
While Shovel Knight may not be arriving before the end of the year, it’s good to know that now we can at least expect it to be arriving within the first few months of 2014: stay tuned for more details on Shovel Knight as it nears release next year.
@Dungeon00X The more we work on the game, the more early 2014 seems like a much more likely release date. Will be a busy Winter, to be sure!
