Shovel Knight Continues Foray Into Every Video Game Franchise By Joining Rivals Of Aether

For those who noticed Shovel Knight as an assist trophy in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate this previous week and have been disillusioned since you wished to play as him as a substitute, indie 2D Smash Bros.-like Rivals of Aether will make your each shovel-related dream come true. Shovel Knight is coming to the sport as a playable character.

Shovel Knight has a number of his gadgets from the sport, just like the Mud Knuckle or Propeller Knuckle. You may try a trailer of the blue knight in motion under.

This makes the 14th playable look of Shovel Knight in one other sport (and the fourth combating sport of these appearances) of a complete 21 appearances, playable or in any other case. Shovel Knight is the Stan Lee of indie video video games.

Shovel Knight’s look in Rivals of Aether is labeled as “Coming Quickly” from the trailer, however the builders have put up a larger blog post detailing how he will play within the meantime. Rivals of Aether is at present obtainable on PC and Xbox One, although there are plans to deliver it to different programs sooner or later with an introduced Change port at present being a precedence.


That is truly fewer appearances than I assumed, although now that he’s in Smash Bros. Final, I ponder if he’ll simply be in AAA video games now. Perhaps the subsequent God of Warfare ought to have his armor on the bottom and return the crossover from the Kratos boss struggle in Shovel Knight.
