New Shovel Knight game confirmed to be in development alongside remake

I ndie studio Yacht Club Games has announced that a brand-new mainline entry in the Shovel Knight saga is currently in development. This comes via an official post made using the developer's X account. Yacht Club Games suggests that this "isn't just another sequel." Furthermore, the team has also announced a remake of its original title called Shovel of Hope DX.

After the massive success this title saw back in 2014, fans have been eagerly anticipating a true successor. Here's everything to know about the upcoming next-gen entry as well as the upcoming remake

Yacht Club Games is working on the next mainline Shovel Knight game

Here's what the team had to say about the new game in development:

"We're committed to crafting an experience that not only honors the legacy but also pioneers groundbreaking, innovative gameplay mechanics. This isn't just another sequel - it's a bold new adventure."

Unfortunately, there is not much else to report on this front. Nothing is known about this title's release date or the platforms it will arrive on, either. So fans will likely have to wait a while for more information.

It is good to see, however, that the team wants to bring a new experience that innovates upon the formula established by its debut retro-inspired sidescroller.

It remains to be seen what new mechanics a hypothetical sequel brings to the table, but Yacht Club Games has shown that it is up for the challenge. For example, players were treated to new mechanics in the Spectre of Torment expansion for Shovel Knight Treasure Trove (a definitive release of the original experience out right now).

This was then followed by a couple of spin-offs, such as Shovel Knight Pocket Rumble and Shovel Knight Dig. While these are great side experiences that certainly helped the team expand its horizons, fans still await what's next for the blue armor-clad hero. The developers also suggested that they have hidden away clues as to what the project is about in these older titles.

While it is not yet known what these clues are, dedicated fans will surely unearth them in due time.

What is the new remake about?

A remake of the original title subtitled Shovel of Hope DX is also coming. This is a feature-rich rendition of the challenging platformer classic everyone loves but with new features, including:

  • 20 unique playable characters, including Shield Knight and Enchantress
  • Online multiplayer
  • Challenge Stages
  • Custom Knight
  • Battle Ghost Arena
  • Over 300 cheats to mix up gameplay
  • Stereoscopic 3D Support

Players intrigued by the series can check out Shovel Knight Treasure Trove on all major platforms including PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

History [ ]

Yacht Club Games was founded by former developers from WayForward Technologies who wished to work on their own titles. The company announced their first title, Shovel Knight , on March 14, 2013. They financed its development through a successful Kickstarter campaign, and released it on June 26, 2014. [2] Following the stretched goal of the Kickstarter campaign, the developers added more content to the base game from 2015 to 2018. With each new campaign being as large as the original main game, the developers decided to change the economic model of Shovel Knight . The original game, which includes all content, was renamed Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove , and all campaigns and the Battle Mode are available to purchase separately. [3]

In addition to their own title, Yacht Club Games also published Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack in North America, an enhanced collection of the first and second Azure Striker Gunvolt games developed by the Japanese studio Inti Creates . [4]

Yacht Club Games are very active on Twitter , where they constantly post, updates, events of interest, sales in the digital shops, as well as jokes such as the Shovel Knight IRL: Physical Game Cameo Extravaganza!! .

Silent Hill and FromSoftware Fans Should Keep an Eye on Labyrinth of the Demon King

Palworld faces a tightrope walk regarding one future mechanic, xbox game pass subscribers unhappy with new day one game.

Handheld gaming undoubtedly revolutionized the industry. Nintendo’s Game Boy, released in 1989, has since become the third best-selling game console of all time and has spawned hits such as Pokemon and The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening . Even in today’s market of high-resolution graphics and big-budget franchises, some gamers and developers are still fiercely loyal to the aesthetics of handheld games. Yacht Club Games , the studio behind the upcoming action-adventure game Mina the Hollower , certainly falls into that category.

Yacht Club made a name for itself with 2014’s Shovel Knight , a side-scrolling platformer in the style of a classic NES game, which took home the Game Awards’ Best Independent Game accolade that same year. Now, the studio is working on Mina , which it calls “a love letter to th Game Boy era.” Game Rant spoke to Yacht Club marketing head Celia Schilling about the game’s handheld influences and what’s next for the upcoming title. The transcript has been edited for clarity and brevity.

RELATED: Mina the Hollower Surpasses Kickstarter Funding Goal

Q: Let’s start with a quick overview of Mina the Hollower. Can you tell us a bit about the game?

A: Mina the Hollower is a love letter to the Game Boy era . We’re huge fans of handhelds, and when we were deciding on a new game to make, a Game Boy style just made sense. Yacht Club Games has a pretty open platform, so when we're deciding what games to make or to publish, everyone has a hand in that. So, two of my colleagues had similar ideas about developing a Game Boy-style game, and we as a team conjoined those ideas into Mina the Hollower .

The game is a bone-chilling action adventure featuring the gameplay and 8-bit aesthetic of the Game Boy Color, but refined for the modern era. You play as Mina: she's a bright inventor and “hollower,” who’s best known for inventing spark technology, which harnesses an experimental source of power. She gets a very concerning letter from her longtime friend, Baron Lionel, saying that her spark generators are powering down. Foul play is suspected. Confused and concerned, she sets off on a journey to see what's going on. That's where her journey starts off.

We announced Mina the Hollower at the beginning of February, and we were beyond thrilled to announce it. We also announced a Kickstarter, and it's been phenomenal. We broke through so many stretch goals, we're beyond thankful for the community and their support, and we look forward to sharing the development process as we move forward.

Q: Before we get into the more technical side of things, let’s talk about the game world. You mentioned that the main character is a “hollower.” What is that, exactly?

A: Hollowers are a super cool society devoted to studying elements and the art of burrowing. We'll have more details later on how to be a hollower.

Some elements of the game are technology versus nature , and learning more about a passion for studying the world. We're going to delve into so much more, and I'm so excited to share more with you, but we’ll have to keep it a bit more surface-layer for now.

RELATED: Mina the Hollower Is More Than Just A Game Boy Love Letter

Q: How would you describe the game’s aesthetic?

A: It’s a late-1800s Victorian Gothic setting. It’s funny, because Shovel Knight was very medieval, and now we’ve moved to the Victorian era, so we're going forward in history. Maybe next we’ll do a sick 90s game or something.

Besides taking inspiration from other games like Castlevania, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, and even Bloodborne, the game also took inspirations from Gothic-era writings like The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, Dracula and Frankenstein . That genre tells stories in worlds that have a horrific descent from normality into something dark and spooky. I feel like our team caught the spooky bug from Specter of Torment, and we’re taking all our hopes and dreams and putting them into Mina the Hollower , since we're able to take a darker approach to it.

In our demo, we introduce a character called the Duke, who’s a kind-hearted soul, and you'll help him on a mini quest to find his lover, the Duchess. At the end of the quest, where you end up fighting the Duchess, you eventually realize that you’re bringing him to a coffin. You realize that you’re bringing the Duke to his lover, who has passed away. At first, it seems like a fun fetch quest , but it becomes sad. Things are a little bit darker in Mina , and we've definitely leaned into those tones. We're having so much fun in the writers' room right now, really getting into the nitty-gritty of it.

Q: Let’s talk about gameplay. Mina the Hollower seems like it has a bit of an RPG element. Is that a fair assessment? What are some key gameplay elements players should be aware of?

A: Oh, yeah, of course. We did use some RPG elements — my colleagues are huge fans of RPG games. There’s a currency system that uses bones, we call it “boning up.” You can upgrade skills, you can upgrade health, there's leveling up in there. Just like any other RPG , you can upgrade certain skills to appeal to your favorite playstyle. We're currently working out certain details and seeing if we’re going to add more. We have a hard time putting down the creative pen.

As for gameplay elements, like I said, we took a lot of inspiration from Link's Awakening, Castlevania, and Bloodborne . In particular, we imagined a top-down Castlevania , and then meshed that with an intense, combat-focused style. We also combined that with open-ended, top-down exploration. That’s really going to be a focus of the game. It's blending everything that we loved about certain genres of games, and truly writing a love letter to the Game Boy.

RELATED: Legendary Composer Yuzo Koshiro to Compose For Mina The Hollower

Q: The phrase ‘a love letter to Game Boy’ seems to be pretty central to Mina’s marketing scheme. Can you tell me a bit about how the developers accomplished that aim?

To paraphrase a colleague: because we wrote the game as a love letter to Game Boy, does that mean that we're being truly faithful to the genre? Well, we're making it for the modern era. There were a lot of limitations to Game Boy games . So, we're staying faithful with things like the color palette, making sure that it's an eight by eight per pixel tile, and matching the Game Boy’s four colors per sprite.

We’re staying true to that, because the Game Boy pixel sprites were beautiful, and although they really had a lot of limitations, they really expanded upon that. So we're staying true to things like that. Another example is the screen size. Game Boy screens were very small, and TVs don’t use that aspect ratio anymore. It would be pretty difficult to stay faithful to that, so we did make it a little bit larger.

We're basically combining mechanics. Sometimes it can feel like we're reinventing the wheel when staying faithful, because we’ll think of a memorable mechanic of some game, and we have to figure out how to take everything that we loved about that mechanic and make it make more sense for our game. It’s a lot of thinking about what you remember about games and love about them, and combining the two to make an experience that is reminiscent.

Q: You mentioned your Kickstarter, which closed in early March. You’ve nearly tripled your funding goal and raked in more than $1 million. You’ve announced a number of stretch goals, but how else are you going to use that cash to improve the game?

A: Well, we’ll expand the world and the community. We're delving into aspects of the game that we normally wouldn't have spent as much development time on. When people hear “development time,” they don't realize that every day of extended development is another dollar sign.

The cool thing about Yacht Club Games, and I guess also our Achilles heel, is that we have a hard time putting down the creative pen. With our Kickstarter money , we can develop a month or so longer than we would have expected to have. So we’re asking, what other cool things can we do with this? For us, it’s to really expand, build the world, and build the community. When I say community, I mean developing things like merch, since it’s a new IP. We have that opportunity as well. But, I think, the primary focus of what we're getting from the Kickstarter is going to go to the game, to build it and make it better than it could have ever been.

RELATED: Fall Guys Is Teasing A Shovel Knight Crossover

Q: How far along in the development process are we now? Has Yacht Club ever done Early Access for their games, or is that something you’d consider for Mina ?

A: We typically don't do early access. If the world becomes a bit safer, hopefully, we'll have a really polished demo for the community to play at conventions. As for a release, we tend not to give dates until we're way closer. We want to be confident, and we don't want to have a delay extravaganza . But one thing that we can reassure our backers about, as well as your readers and anyone in the community, is that we're a very transparent company. We're always sharing where we are during our development process, so we’ll be there every step of the way.

Once we're more sure about things, we’ll be sure to drop hints: ‘Oh, it's coming soon. It's nearing the end of development.’ There are a lot of things going on in the world right now. We're dedicated to finishing this game. We're passionate people, we love this. But, we're a people-first company, and we're very transparent about that. If the world's ending, we'll develop the game from, I don’t know, under the sea. We'll figure it out. But we’ll keep everyone in the process every step of the way.

Q: What sort of future content do you have planned?

A: Right now, things aren't solidified in the pipeline. So, stay tuned for more information posted on our social media pages.

RELATED: For Honor is Adding Shovel Knight Content

Q: Your other major IP, Shovel Knight , was a critical success. Do you expect a similar reception for Mina ?

A: From what we've seen already, and how obsessed we are with Mina in general, we would assume that people are really going to like it. We're putting our hearts and souls into this project, and if you like Game Boy, and you like Castlevania , Bloodborne, and pixel art games , I think you'll like this game.

Q: Do you have any advice for smaller indie devs looking to break into the industry?

A: Use social media to your advantage, use your resources, go out and make friends if you can. Shoot off an email and say, ‘Hey, I'd love to have you as a contact. I'm working on this game.’ Develop your pitch and be vocal about it.

Take chances. In our situation, my colleagues left the different game companies where they were established, where they had worked on games, and they knew how to make games. But they took a chance, and they did everything they could — they put their heart and souls into Shovel Knight , and they made a lot of friends along the way. It became a synergy success.

So I would say it's about being vocal, making friends and believing in your project.

Mina the Hollower is coming soon for PC.

'A Decade of Shovel Knight' Yacht Club Games Presents showcase set for next week

Yacht Club Games is commemorating a full decade of the little shoveler that could.

Ozzie Mejia

This coming weekend is filled with livestreams, presentations, and showcases. However, at the tail end of it, there's an anniversary to celebrate. Yacht Club Games is preparing to commemorate a milestone birthday for the Shovel Knight series. The chivalrous shoveler will celebrate 10 years with a special presentation.

A Decade of Shovel Knight banner from Yacht Club Games

A Decade of Shovel Knight was first announced on the Yacht Club Games X (formerly Twitter) account . The showcase will celebrate ten years of Shovel Knight, looking back at his illustrious history of games, starting with the original game, which has since been re-titled Shovel Knight: Shovel of Hope. Developer Yacht Club Games is promising some announcements, including new update and merchandise announcements.

"For the past ten years, we've worked tirelessly to create fun and challenging games for you," Yacht Club Games' Sean Velasco said via press release. "As we've grown and evolved, our commitment to our community and craft has only strengthened. Get ready to celebrate a decade of digging - we’re just getting started!"

Shovel Knight has had an extensive history, one that started back in 2013 as one of the earliest Kickstarter success stories . After its crowdfunding campaign, Shovel Knight prospered on multiple platforms, growing so big that the heroic lead character found his way into multiple games as a crossover cameo and even became the first indie gaming character to have his own official Amiibo from Nintendo.

Speculation will run rampant as to what Yacht Club Games could potentially announce. Recall that with the original Amiibo announcement came rumors of a potential sequel following a Nintendo statement that it would work with future Shovel Knight titles. Any major announcements will be made during the Yacht Club Games Presents: A Decade of Shovel Knight presentation, which will air on Friday, June 14 at 11:00 a.m. PT/2:00 p.m. ET.

Senior Editor

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

Yacht Club Games Presents Looks at Upcoming Shovelry

Shovels to the future.

Yacht Club Games Presents | Featured

Well folks, I completely forgot that today was the day for Yacht Club Games Presents, despite writing up the announcement recently . But fret not, since now this belated fanboy is all caught up, and eager to share the high notes of the presentation with you. Not only did this celebrate the 10th anniversary of Shovel Knight , but it announced upcoming DLC for two games, a remastered, definitive edition of the original game, a recap for Mina the Hollower and more.

Yacht Club Games Presents | DIG DLC

First, let’s talk about what’s coming soon. Both Shovel Knight: Pocket Dungeon and Shovel Knight Dig have DLC hitting this Summer! Here’s what fans can expect from both:

Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon: Paradox Pack – This free DLC pack features Mod Support (PC only), new playable characters, new stages, secrets, challenges, and more! The game is also 50% off on all participating platforms.

Shovel Knight Dig: Wicked Wishes – The final free DLC pack for Shovel Knight Dig. It is chock-full of adventure, quests, new bosses & more! Shovel Knight Dig will also be coming to Xbox & PlayStation platforms. The game is 50% off on all participating platforms.

Yacht Club Games Presents | Pocket DLC

That’s not all, though. There was also a lengthy (and dramatic) recap on Mina the Hollower , and while it’s true it didn’t end with a release date or window, they showed off a lot of new content. Better yet, they promise more news is coming soon.

Yacht Club Games Presents | Shovel of Hope DX

But perhaps the most surprising reveal was Shovel of Hope DX . This definitive edition of the game that started it all promises to be a ton of fun:

This brand new title is an enhanced edition of the original adventure with an array of exciting new features such as 20 new playable characters, online multiplayer, rewind/save states, cheats, and more.

Yacht Club Games Presents | Merch

There was even talk of new merchandise collaborations between Yacht Club Games and Insert Coin, Sanshee, Fangamer, Symbiote Studios and Udon, live events in California and more. But perhaps the most exciting was the announcement of an entirely new game in-development, that promises not to just be a mere Shovel Knight sequel.

If you want to see the whole show for yourself, check out the full Yacht Clubs Games Presents below. And stay tuned for more exciting news from the creators of Shovelry!
