Shovel Knight became dear to many gamers by managing to pull off the 8-bit look and feel just right. It’s been doing the rounds as a digital release since its launch, and now developer Yacht Club Games will soon be releasing boxed, physical copies for PS4, Xbox One, Wii U and 3DS.

Set for an October release for the US and Europe, the boxed copies will include various new multiplayer modes plus a shiny, bulky booklet for extra feelies. Yacht Club plan on releasing a free DLC campaign soon for all platforms, and this too will be included in the boxed versions.

If you haven’t played the game yet, that’s as good an excuse as any to hop on the bandwagon and see what all the fuss is about.
