Flyhigh Works has released a brand new piece of DLC for its delightful rhythm game VOEZ, and it features a very familiar indie star.
Yes, Shovel Knight has made its way into VOEZ in the form of a brand new track for you to tap and slide along to. Updating the game will reward you with a playable level of Jake Kaufman’s main theme from Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove (you can catch a sneak preview in the video above).

Do you already own VOEZ on Switch? If not, we'd urge you to check out our review from way back when the Switch first launched.
Oh wow, another Shovel Knight cameo. Could've never seen it coming.
I haven't played VOEZ in forever. Great game though so this sounds like a good excuse to jump back into it for a bit.
Usually Shovel Knight is kept secure in his own universe. Really nice touch for him to make a cameo. 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😊
The OPUS game are fantastic little story-driven experiences. Highly recommend.
My favourite rhytm game with my favourite indie game. I love it
@RPGamer I know. He is in every game ever made. It’s almost ridiculous at this point
I dont see anything wrong with having Shovel Knight make cameos. Thats smart business decision, also Shovel Knight is cool so im okay with it.
@Ardisan Really, tho. We can meme about it all we like, but the truth is that he's one of the most iconic modern game characters probably because you can't get away from him. Every time you see him show up in a game, it reinforces his relevance and increases his mindshare in the general gaming community. I'd be willing to bet this probably has led to a substantial increase in sales of the base Shovel Knight game than there would've been if Yacht Club always said no to these sorts of cameos.
Shovelknight and his cameos are just annoying at this point. Also, he's a fake wannabe 80's retro game character, which makes him even more annoying.
Would have preferred Strike the Earth but that one's good too.
@yuwarite As someone who was alive and playing video games in the 80s, I can assure you that Shovel Knight plays exactly how we remember games from that era playing. It doesn't actually play like them, of course; that would be a terrible design choice. But it plays like we remember.
@PanurgeJr Likewise (hence, my avatar), and I agree about the game. But it's still not a real retro 80's character, despite how much its creators wish it was (so that it can fulfill their childhood dream of having their character be in Smash Bros).
No one could have expected this.
