Smacking Monsters With A Shovel Is Best Done In 8-Bit

Back when we last looked at it, Shovel Knight was still in its infancy—a wee Kickstarter project looking to gain some traction. Well, that was several months and $311,502 ago.


As you can see in the above, recently released trailer, the 8-bit platformer is looking (and sounding) as good as ever. I especially love the way they transition from the orchestra to chiptunes. Lovely animation on the King Knight's cape, too.

Shovel Knight lands on PC, Wii U and 3DS this Winter.
