During the first Yacht Club Games Presents stream last August, the studio announced a new Shovel Knight spin-off, and today they've introduced another one. In addition to working on Shovel Knight Dig and publishing the combat platformer Cyber Shadow (which also received a release window today), Yacht Club is working on Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon, a 2D block-matching puzzle game with roguelite elements.
Yacht Club is working on Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon with developer Vine. As Shovel Knight, players explore dungeons, slash through mobs, scoop up loot, and battle bosses all in the format of a falling block puzzle game. In addition to Shovel Knight, other series characters like Chester the shopkeep and Plague Knight will make appearances in the game.
The trailer doesn't announce a release window or platforms for Pocket Dungeon, but Yacht Club will be bringing the game to PAX East in Boston this weekend.
The Yacht Club Games Presents stream also gave us a new story-focused trailer for Cyber Shadow, the long in-development 8-bit platformer from pixel art maestro Aarne "Mekaskull" Hunziker, along with a release window: Fall 2020.
Cyber Shadow is slated for release on the PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC. Yacht Club Games also has Shovel Knight Dig, a Downwell-inspired collaboration with Nitrome. On a recent Nintendo Power Podcast, Yacht Club's Sandy Gordon said the studio hopes to keep making Shovel Knight titles "for a really long time"—and with recent job postings for a Yacht Club 3D team, there's almost assuredly something else in the works at the studio, too.
