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.

There’s something about the vivid colours, Pixar-levels of world detail, and OTT weaponry that really makes this an appealing looking game.

It’s just looking so lovely – check it out for yourself after the jump, but keep that rainbow-barf bucket at hand.
Last year’s Sonic Boom titles aren’t much more than an unpleasant memory for most gamers and long-time fans of the series. It inspired many to think that it’s high-time for the furry blue mascot to retire, but clearly SEGA has other ideas.
