Shovel Knight is almost ready for Xbox One, and according to Major Nelson the game should arrive next week.

Xbox boss Phil Spencer revealed on Twitter that Yacht Club’s much-praised platformer has passed certification:

That means it’s gone gold for Xbox One, essentially. The game is expected to arrive the week of April 27, and since the Xbox Store is updated on Wednesdays, it is safe to assume it will release on April 29.

The Xbox One version of Shovel knight includes a little treat for those who’ve patiently waited for the indie to make it to their platform of choice: the Battletoads make an appearance.
