Xbox One Shovel Knight Release Date Revealed
2D side-scrolling game will launch next week; Battletoads content coming through a future update.
The Xbox One version of Yacht Club Games' 2D side-scrolling platformer Shovel Knight will be released sometime next week, Microsoft has announced. Xbox boss Phil Spencer said on Twitter that he was recently informed that the game had passed certification, while Microsoft's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb revealed the game's target release window in his own tweet, saying the game is due the week of April 27.
Microsoft typically refreshes the Xbox Store on Wednesdays, which would mean Shovel Knight should arrive on April 29.
At the 2015 Game Developers Conference in March, Microsoft revealed that Battletoads content is coming to Shovel Knight through a future update to the platforming game. You can watch a teaser trailer for the content below.
The PlayStation versions of Shovel Knight are getting special content, too, as God of War's Kratos will make an appearance on Sony consoles.
