Fans of the popular 2D side-scrolling platformer, Shovel Knight, have reason to rejoice as Yacht Club Games recently announced a new game in the franchise – Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon. While the game maintains the same retro-style graphics and characters that fans have grown to love, it introduces a whole new gameplay experience. Let’s dive in and explore what this exciting new addition has to offer.
Unlike its predecessor, Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon is not a side-scrolling platformer. Instead, it’s a unique puzzle-adventure game that combines elements of dungeon-crawling and match-three gameplay. Players will take on the role of Shovel Knight as he journeys through a variety of dungeons, solving puzzles and battling enemies along the way.
The gameplay mechanics involve clearing a grid of blocks to progress through the dungeon. Players need to match at least three blocks of the same color to break them and create a chain reaction. As the level progresses, players will encounter various obstacles and enemies, each with their unique abilities to challenge the player’s strategic skills. Additionally, Shovel Knight’s iconic shovel can be used to clear blocks in a horizontal line, providing a different approach to the traditional match-three genre.
The Adventure Continues
Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon features a story that takes place after the events of Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove. Our hero, Shovel Knight, has geted on a new adventure to explore strange dungeons and discover hidden treasures. Along the way, he must also rescue his friends who have been trapped by an enigmatic new foe, the mischievous Pocket Dungeon.
Adding to the new gameplay experience, the game also features iconic characters from the franchise, including Shield Knight, Plague Knight, and even Black Knight. Each character will have their abilities, making for an exciting and diverse adventure.
Graphics and Music
Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon retains the charming retro-style graphics that have become a trademark of the franchise. The pixelated characters and environments add to the nostalgic feel of the game and will surely delight fans of the series.
The game’s soundtrack, composed by Jake Kaufman, is a perfect blend of catchy chiptune melodies and epic orchestral tracks. It’s a testament to Kaufman’s talent and adds to the overall immersive experience of the game.
Release Date and Platforms
Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon is set to release in late 2021 for PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Additionally, Yacht Club Games has confirmed that the game will also be available on the upcoming Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and Amazon Luna. Fans can pre-order the game on Steam, where they will also receive an exclusive soundtrack.
With its unique blend of puzzle mechanics, beloved characters, and nostalgic graphics, Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon is shaping up to be an excellent addition to the franchise. Whether you’re a long-time fan of the series or a newcomer, there’s no doubt that this game will offer an exciting and challenging adventure. Stay tuned for more updates on the release of Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon and get ready to get on another journey with the brave and lovable hero, Shovel Knight.
