Shovel Knight Now Available on Xbox One

Shovel Knight shook things up in 2014, bringing a stellar retro-style game to the table. After mass success on Wii U, 3DS, and PC, Yacht Club Games continue to bring the Shovel Knight love to more consoles, and in this case, a tad earlier than expected.

The famed platformer snuck onto Xbox Live rather silently and is now available to download on Xbox One. Yacht Club Games confirmed this on Twitter today that Shovel Knight is currently available for download on Xbox One. The game was originally set to launch on Wednesday, April 29, but the download date was bumped up by several hours.

The Xbox One version has the classic Rare characters, The Battletoads, in addition to the already treasured side-scrolling gameplay.
