The game, a collaboration between Yacht Club and indie developer VINE, will revolve around exploring a dungeon by clearing rooms of enemies that behave like the falling blocks in a block-matching puzzle. Shovel Knight will damage enemies by bumping into them and be able to chain attacks together when similar enemies are all grouped together.


You’ll also apparently be able to play as characters other than Shovel Knight, as well as collect new gear and power ups as you get further in the dungeons. In addition to the story mode, Yacht Club said there will also be a two player versus mode.
