Honestly psyched for this. It seems more like a spin-off than a sequel but it looks like a lot of fun and I've got full confidence in just about anything Yacht Club has their name on. Love the spritework too.

Music is also amazing, but that's hardly a surprise with Jake Kaufman composing.

Obviously I'm hyped, but aren't we still waiting for "king of cards" campaign" with King Knight?

Also on nitpicking site, I don't like what they did with Shovel Knight's horns. Makes him look fat.

So did we moved from "NES" to "SNES" graphics? Will next game be in blocky 3D of N64? I'm kinda intrigued by this vision.

The last updates for Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove, which includes the King Knight Campaign & the fighting mode: Showdown, will be releasing in December

Oh wow, Nitrome, that takes me back.  I used to play their Flash games all the time.  This may not be a sequel, but the care it's getting makes it feel like a sequel; I hope it lives up to first impressions!
