Backers of the old-school, Capcom-inspired platformer Shovel Knight can grab their copies of the game a little earlier than expected.

The game is set to release tomorrow, but according to an update on the game's Kickstarter page, if you backed a tier that afforded you a copy of the game, you should be able to find your download code and redeem it for your copy immediately. To find out how to do that, head here.

For non-backers of the game, Shovel Knight will be available tomorrow on 3DS, Wii U, and PC at 11am PST. To see the game's launch trailer, head here. For our review of Shovel Knight, keep an eye on Game Informer.

Our Take
This is a great bonus for those who have been supporting the game since its early development. It's one I have been looking forward to, and I am excited to spend some time with it tomorrow.
