Yacht Club Games is making a prequel to its widely beloved Shovel Knight. It’s called Shovel Knight: Specter of Tormet and features a new playable character. The spirit and design of the first game are alive and well here though. The announcement comes thanks to, once again, The Game Awards 2016. No word was given on release date or for what consoles but we can assume all major systems will be graced with this followup. Also, this protangist can slice giant cannonballs in half, so watch out bad guys. You can check out the reveal above and let us know how you feel about a successor to the hit indie darling!
