Among the many wonderful gaming professionals we had the pleasure of meeting on the con floor this year were Yacht Club Games, the geniuses behind the high anticipated Shovel Knight (which is coming soon to many formats, including the 3DS thankfully!).
For those of you who haven’t heard of Shovel Knight ; it is a mediaeval platformer not entirely dissimilar to Capcom classic Ghouls & Ghosts. What sets Shovel Knight apart, however, is the fact our armour-cladden protagonist rocks a shovel instead of a sword, a detail that, awesomely, has many far reaching implications for the title’s gameplay".
