The game is described as "a hot mashup of new and old that may remind you of Mega Man", and now there's another reason why Yacht Club's platformer will remind you of one of Capcom's most recognised characters — Mega Man composer Manami Matsumae will be hard at work writing two songs for Shovel Knight.
Speaking about her new project, she said:
This is the first time I'm working on a Western game! It's quite exciting! Shovel Knight and I are a good fit. So... let's get shovelin'?
Shovel Knight's Kickstarter still has 8 days to go at the time of writing, and it's currently received $103,092 of its $75,000 goal. With Manami Matsumae on board, we can see the total rising rapidly.
