Shovel Knight is a stand-out game on Wii U and 3DS, and the hero sure gets around. The character's had a handful of fun cameos confirmed to date, and has now secured what may be his most high-profile gig yet.


It's been confirmed that Shovel Knight will appear in Yooka-Laylee, showing off some some chunky armour in the 3D world. You can see the teaser below, along with some words from the Yacht Club Games team on how it's come together.

Whoahhh!!!! Isn't it amazing to see Shovel Knight rendered in 3D?! It was a team effort too! Our very own Sean Velasco made all the funny noises for Shovel Knight's voice. Is that what Shovel Knight really sounds like?

Yacht Club Games designed and built the model itself while Playtonic rigged and animated it to life. Shovel Knight sure looks comfortable in a 3D world. Who knows…maybe one day we'll see Shovel Knight running and jumping around his very own 64-styled adventure! Wouldn't that be neat?

Are you looking forward to this cameo, and are you still hoping for that much-teased Shovel Knight 64 in the future? Let us know in the comments.

With thanks to all that sent this in.
