Shovel Knight trailer accompanies new release date

Shovel Knight was delayed late last year, but has resurfaced with a new trailer and a release window that shouldn’t test your patience too much.

As you’ll see in the trailer below, the retro-style platformer is coming to PC on March 31. On Twitter, developer Yacht Club Games said the 3DS and Wii U releases may vary slightly, but will be around this time.

We had originally expected the crowdfunded title in September 2013, but it was delayed at least twice. According to a recent Kickstarter update, Shovel Knight is currently in alpha, and getting close to beta.

“And if you’re wondering why it took so long, let’s just say the game got a lot bigger than we originally intended, and we think everyone will be happy with that,” Yacht Club said.

Thanks, Destructoid.
