After many months of work, Yacht Club Games is finally ready to release Shovel Knight on Sony Consoles! The game will be available on PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita and PlayStation, including some nice PS exclusive features for those of you who have already taken this game out for a spin on Wii U or 3DS. Want to learn more about that? Then click after the break!
Here are some cool exclusive PlayStation features you might not know about:
Cross buy — Shovel Knight supports cross buy! Buy the game on one PlayStation platform, and you’ll get it on the rest!
Cross save! — That’s right! At any time you can transfer your save file between PS4, PS3, and PS Vita. You can make sure you never have to do anything twice!
Vita Back Touch — A few easter eggs are littered throughout the game. Try poking the back of your Vita and see what happens!
PS4 DualShock 4 Light Bar — We found some fun ways to light up your hands during Shovel Knight’s most dramatic moments. Keep your eyes peeled!
Platinum Trophy! — Are you good enough to tackle Shovel Knight’s toughest challenges? Prove it and earn the Platinum!
BATTLE KRATOS! — Take up your Shovel Blade against the legendary hero from God of War. Try to find and take him down in Shovel Knight. Maybe he’ll teach you a thing or two about how to fight…
But wait, there’s more! Now that the game has been released on Sony consoles, Yacht Club Games will continue to develop some extra content they will make available for FREE to make your copy of Shovel Knight even better. The extra content is as follows:
