Delve into Shovel Knight Dig on September 23rd

It has been a solid 4 years since the last proper Shovel Knight title was released, so it’s about damn time for a new one… which is why Yacht Club Games announced a release date for Shovel Knight Dig finally.

Coming to the Nintendo Switch, PC via Steam and iOS devices on September 23rd, 2022, Shovel Knight Dig is an all-new adventure being co-developed by Nitrome.  The title will set fans back $24.99 (but also included as a part of Apple Arcade subscription), and judging by the latest media, it’s looking quite good.
