In a new character trailer released for Playtonic Games’ upcoming title Yooka-Laylee, Shovel Knight has been announced to make an appearance in the game.
Yacht Club Games and Playtonic Games are teaming up to include Shovel Knight in the Yooka-Laylee adventure, although it is unclear exactly what he will be doing in the game. Fans have speculated that he will offer up a request to our familiar duo, however specific details have yet to be known. Shovel Knight joins a group of original characters such as dinosaur Rextro, the clothed snake Trowzer, and the wooden mine cart Kartos.
There is a lot of anticipation leading up to the release of Yooka-Laylee, especially since the game has been delayed from its 2016 window to Spring 2017 to polish it up. We can’t wait to see what the game has in store in terms of content and creative talent.
Yooka-Laylee will launch for the Xbox One, Playstation 4, Wii U, and PC in 2017.
