Following the successful debut of Yacht Club Games’ Shovel Knight earlier this year, the titular shovel-wielding hero has really been making the rounds, with the game set to debut next year on PlayStation consoles, alongside a newly-revealed appearance in another game.

Coming through a new trailer on the YouTube channel for developer Dark Seas Games shows that Shovel Knight will appear as a playable character in the studio’s road rampaging title Road Redemption, with the hero donning a motorcycle and even his trusty shovel to whack enemies off the highway.

Road Redemption is currently available in Early Access format through Steam on PC, with the game also scheduled to appear on PS4, Xbox One, Wii U, Mac, and Linux next year – in the meantime, you can check out the trailer for Shovel Knight‘s appearance in the game:
