Shovel Knight has become an incredibly successful and well-loved series in its own right over the last few years, finding a natural home on Nintendo's platforms. We're sure that the team over at Yacht Club Games are beyond proud of their success, but that doesn't stop them from getting ridiculously excited at seeing their character appear in a major Nintendo release.
The team recently took to Twitch to stream some Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, when Shovel Knight - who is included in the game as an Assist Trophy - appears on screen. Things get pretty crazy as the excitement rushes through the team, but it only gets better from there. We don't want to ruin the fun (we came away from this video with huge grins on our faces) so make sure to simply enjoy the moment for yourself by watching below.
What a truly beautiful, magical moment. Congratulations Yacht Club Games, we're delighted to see Shovel Knight strutting his stuff in Smash.
