Shovel Knight
Dig The Vote Winners!
November 5, 2013 - Yacht Club Games

Hello again, Shovelers and Shovelettes!! The team here is all hard at work on the remaining stretch of Shovel Knight so that it can magically arrive on your digital doorstep later this Winter. In the meantime, we just finished up our Dig The Vote campaign to decide which three Boss Knights will be playable in our alternate campaign mode update. I hope you like to bomb jump, strut, and look awesome!

Specter Knight, Plague Knight, and King Knight!!


#1: Specter Knight

The immortal and immaterial terror, Specter Knight, took first place easily! Now, his fate in the campaign is sealed. Get ready for scythe swinging and frail floating... it’s hard to resist the allure of the undead.

#2: Plague Knight

Plague Knight, reticent and reclusive, has been voted into the spotlight! Being in the spotlight makes Plague Knight a little uneasy, and when Plague Knight gets uneasy, things start to explode. This should make for an interesting campaign!

#3: King Knight

What!? This has to be a trick. We all know King Knight is a cheater, so we counted and recounted. Either the ballot stuffing was very well done, or everyone truly loves the Sultan of Swagger! King Knight triumphantly joins the campaign (and steals center stage for the illustration too!)

Fun Fact: Propeller Knight was the next in line at #4. So close!

Another Fun Fact: the Enchantress was very polarizing! She receiving many first place votes (more than Plague Knight!), but she also received the most last place votes, which knocked her out of the running with the way our votes were weighted. Love her or hate her, we suppose!

You can read up on all of the playstyle ideas right here[yachtclubgames.com]! Of course, all Boss Knights will bce playable in our future Battle Mode update. The perfect arena to show everyone who's boss!

Thanks for staying tuned everyone! Until next time!

You'd figure specter knight and shovel knight (aka gravedigger knight??) would get along...

I really wanted The Enchantress and the Propeller Knight :(

Well. At least I got Specter Knight and Plague Knight, my other choice.
