Shovel Knight being delayed until 2014

Posted on Monday, December 2nd 2013 at 7:39 p.m.

Shovel Knight, a game I tried at PAX East and immediately had to support on Kickstarter, has now been delayed until early 2014. Also, the stretch goals (New Game+, Gender Swap mode and a 4 Player Battle mode) will be available as a free update after the game is launched. While it is sad that the game won’t be making its initial launch date of September 2013 (which has clearly passed), it is nice that the team is putting time into the game to make sure it is awesome.

As Miyamoto once said, “A delayed game is eventually good, but a rushed game is forever bad.” Let’s hope Shovel Knight is as awesome as I believe it can be!
