Among some of last year’s biggest titles like Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor and Far Cry 4, Yacht Club Games’ Kickstarted title Shovel Knight drew plenty of praise for its 8-bit era-inspired platforming and classic gaming mentality, and now Xbox One owners can dig into the platforming title.

Over on Major Nelson’s blog, Shovel Knight has officially been released on the Xbox Games Store for Xbox One, and along with all of the content from the original game, the Xbox One version includes a special exclusive boss fight with the classic trio of characters from Battletoads, featuring Zitz, Pimple, and Rash.

The Xbox One release follows roughly one week after the PlayStation versions’ launched last week, with the PS4/PS3/PS Vita versions featuring an exclusive boss fight against God of War’s protagonist, Kratos.

Shovel Knight is available now on Xbox One.
