Arena brawlers are all the rage nowadays. While Super Smash Bros. reigns supreme, lesser known titles under the same banner continue to fight for fame. One of the best ways to achieve this appears to be by recruiting an all-star cast of indie fighters.

The Switch eShop title Brawlout has been busy bolstering its own line-up with characters like Juan from Guacamelee! and Hyper Light Drifter. More recently it was announced Playtonic’s Yooka-Laylee would also be a gust fighter in the game. Now, in the latest trailer building excitement for the all-format release, the protagonist from Dead Cells has been revealed.

What’s most intriguing about this particular reveal is the music associated with the new fighter. It’s evidently the theme of Shovel Knight playing in the background while the character from Dead Cells holds his battle-worn shovel high up in the air. It's worth pointing out Shovel Knight already features in Indie Pogo and Blade Strangers
