One of the greatest indie games ever funded and made is giving players more options to buy with a full retail physical release coming October 13th in North America and October 16th in Europe priced at $19.99 MSRP. Yacht Club also states that Shovel Knight boasts over 700,000 downloads across all platforms, making Shovel Knight a huge success!

Below is Yacht Club’s Presser:

The Details
North America: October 13, 2015

Europe: October 16th, 2015

$19.99 MSRP

Available on Nintendo 3DS, Wii U, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, (PC – Europe only)

Pre-Orders should be live at your favorite retailer: Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Target, Gamestop, Amazon…you name it! To make as big of a splash as possible, and to let retailers know that they need to stock up, you should definitely pre-order now!! We’d consider it a huge personal favor; thanks in advance!

What’s in the box?!

The physical version of Shovel Knight contains everything we’ve released so far. First, there is the original Shovel Knight campaign with all the content you know and love! Also included is Shovel Knight’s first content update: Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows. Finally, there’s a full-featured Challenge mode with more than 50 crazy challenge levels to explore!

Of course, like the digital version, every boxed version will also receive FREE future updates as they become available:

Specter Knight’s Campaign – A full campaign starring the shadowy scythe spinner!
King Knight’s Campaign – A crazy campaign with the gilded goob himself!
Battle Mode – Duel with up to 4 players as your favorite heroic or villainous knight! (Wii U/PS4/XB1/PC exclusive)
Body Swap Mode – Did you ever wish Shovel Knight was a lady, or Shield Knight was a dude? Well, now you’ll be able to change them all around, along with the rest of the cast!
Oh, and one more thing: every boxed copy of Shovel Knight will include a lavish instruction booklet similar to the Kickstarter reward. No 2-page inserts here! You deserve a full manual, to hold in your hot little shaking hands and pore over as you wait to get home!

Yacht Club Games – Now a Publisher!!

Wait, but who is publishing the game?! We are! Yes, us! That’s right! The Yacht Club Games crew has joined the world of physical publishing. But we’re getting a big helping hand from our distributor U&I Entertainment, who will be shipping the game out to stores for us. They have done an amazing job with Telltale’s games like The Walking Dead, as well as Divinity: Original Sin, so we know they are up to the task! Fun Fact: they even shipped the original PlayStation back in 1995!

This is a whole new frontier for us, and we couldn’t be more grateful to have the amazing team at U&I at our backs to help us bring Shovel Knight to store shelves! This is just the beginning!

Wow…was that too much information? Stay tuned this coming month because we have even more crazy cool news to reveal. For instance, a final Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows release date and trailer! Also… we’ve heard the cries of bringing more exclusive content to Nintendo platforms. It might not be quite what you expect… but keep an eye out for another MEGATON announcement soon!
