What’s next from the creators of Shovel Knight?
Since they’ve finished Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove, and Shovel Knight Showdown, what’s next for Yacht Club Games? So far. the company only has one upcoming title announced, that of Shovel Knight Dig, and even that’s being developed in conjunction with another company. Based on a recent interview with Yacht Club devs on the Nintendo Power podcast, we know that the company wants to continue working on Shovel Knight. Now, we may find out what’s coming from the upstart game studio very soon through another Yacht Club Games Presents event.
Yacht Club Games Presents streams are extremely similar to Nintendo’s Directs. Their first stream debuted Shovel Knight Dig and other titles, generally giving more information on the games after presenting them. As I said, Yacht Club Games definitely took a page from Nintendo’s notes.
So, what can you expect from this upcoming stream? From the event page on Yacht Club Games’ website, we’re told that updates on Cyber Shadow and Shovel Knight are guaranteed, along with some “surprises we promise you’ve never seen!” You know what that might mean – brand new titles. Don’t expect anything entirely new, as Yacht Club seems attached to Shovel Knight and it seems that the company will be working to build more games inside that universe for the coming years. That being said, I’d be surprised if there aren’t any new titles announced.
