That Shovel Knight sure gets around!
Shovel Knight Dig has just released, and it’s the latest official Shovel Knight game in the series. While there have been a few Shovel Knight-focused outings over the years, the character has popped up as a cameo quite a bit. Believe it or not, Shovel Knight has made a cameo appearance in at least 33 different titles since the character’s inception!
Wondering why Shovel Knight is the new king of cameos? GameSpot talked to Yacht Club’s Celia Schilling to find out.
“Oh, I don’t know. There’s a lot of them. We think it’s funny. It’s just that we’ve always imagined Shovel Knight as like an all-encompassing universe. To see Shovel Knight in different things, or like Arby’s kids meal toys–it just makes sense for our brand. And it’s hilarious.”
