Ackk Studios have announced that Shovel Knight will be making an appearance in Two Brothers, which is releasing on the Wii U eShop in less than two weeks. Both games were successfully kickstarted. It’s nice to see indie devs lending one another a hand and letting characters appear in each other’s games, similar to what Super Meat Boy did in 2010 with multiple playable characters from other indie games.

“We are proud to announce that when Two Brothers launches in a few weeks.. Roy and Bivare will be getting help from the one and only SHOVEL KNIGHT!!!”

Shovel Knight will be seeing his first appearance on the Wii U in Two Brothers, as Shovel Knight is not yet ready for release.

  • RoboticLink

    That’s awesome!!!!

    Wait… who the heck is Shovel Knight?

    • Baum 「ツリー」

      Shovel Knight’s a pretty awesome looking Indie game ^^

      • RoboticLink

        That’s true, it looks really cool

        • Baum 「ツリー」

          Wich stupid fucker’s downvoting again!?

  • Derk

    Who is shovel knight?

    The 1980s called and they want their games back.

  • Jack5221

    Who is Shovel Knight? Someone has to know! (Im too lazy to google him. :P)

    • Madmagican

      Shovel Knight’s the main character from an upcoming indie game by Yacht Club
      it a 2D platformer throwback to the 8-bit/16-bit era drawing inspiration from (most notably) Megaman, Castlevania, and a bit of Ducktales
      It’s definitely worth your time

  • Nintendofreak

    8bit on whooping 1080p

  • RoboticLink

    It’s really cool that people are making games that look like classics, but that are brand new, just like A Link Between Worlds

    BTW: Like if you’re getting A Link Between Worlds and downvote if you don’t want it

    (Don’t be shy to downvote, unless you’re part of Downvote & Co.)

    • Jack5221

      I dont have a 3DS – yet, but Im up-voting because its one of the many games I plan on getting for my 3DS, when I buy one.

      • RoboticLink

        Yeah, just some advice: when you get one there are a few games that you should definitely get, they are

        Loz: Ocarina of Time, Mario Kart 7, Kid Icarus: Uprising, Super Mario 3D Land and even if I haven’t played it, New Super Mario Bros 2 (it looks really awesome)
        Don’t get Star Fox 64 3D, though if you want it buy from the Wii’s Virtual Console (and if it’s still available through Club Nintendo)
        Oh yeah, Fire Emblem is really cool too

        • The Clockwork Being

          Its funny because most of my games won’t be Nintendo games when I get my 3DS. I’ll be getting.

          Kid Icarus, A Link between worlds, Etrian Odessey 4, Etrian Odessey Untold: The Millinieum Girl, Shin Megami Tensei 4, Bravely Default, Professor Layton prequel trilogy, Phoenix Wright, Pokemon X and Fire Emblem. So out of 12 games, 4 are Nintendo games

          • RoboticLink

            But if you haven’t already played Ocarina of Time, seriously, just get it, it’s my favorite 3DS game so far

          • The Clockwork Being

            Oh no worries I will play it im planing on buying Orcarina of Time later on the Wii U virtual console or earlier next year.

          • Madmagican

            Just make sure you get SMT4 and Fire Emblem Awakening before the promotion ends (they’re literally giving you $30)
            plus they’re amazing games anyway

        • Jeffery02

          Awww! 🙁 No Luigi’s Mansion Dark Moon?

    • Zelda AlbW is next on my to obtain list for 3DS, maybe Pokémon X or Y will be first but likely not. Started Zelda:OoT3D at the moment, unlike a plain simple remake this really is a major remake when comparing to the original this remake is da bomb (with some minor annoyances as where in the original also)
      Looking most forward to DQVII and Bravely by Default after the new zelda game.

  • gtosheex

    That seals the deal then: Shovel Knight will be in Smash Bros. now

    • makkan

      that would be epic

  • Madmagican

    Strange that his first appearance wasn’t even his own game though

  • Anomandaris

    im pretty sure the game is not releaseing on wiiu in 2 weeks. that is just for pc and stuff. wiiu should come later

  • Anomandaris

    I feel it would be appropriate to post a trailer for both games so people will be familiar

    shovel knight

  • Fuzunga

    Epic pun is epic.

    “releasing on the Wii U eShop in less than two weeks” are you sure about that??

    I think it is only coming to PC, Mac, and Linux in a few weeks and then Wii U and Xbox 360 in February 2014 or something like that.

    That’s what Ackk said on their facebook on saturday anyways. I hope you are right though as I am dying for this game!!!
