Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon Is A New Rogue-Lite/Puzzle Hybrid

by Brian Shea on Feb 26, 2020 at 11:38 AM

Yacht Club Games has announced Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon, an all-new puzzle game created in collaboration with developer Vine. Following the upcoming releases of Cyber Shadow and Shovel Knight Dig, Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon will be the third title Yacht Club Games has made in collaboration with an external game development team.

Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon combines rogue-lite, dungeon-crawling elements with the traditional dropping-tile puzzle game formula. You move around as your selected character, trading damage with enemies and collecting potions. You encounter all kinds of recognizable characters from the various Shovel Knight campaigns to this point, but you'll also meet Puzzle Knight, a brilliant puzzle master who leads Shovel Knight on the quest.

You can check out the first trailer below.

No further details regarding platforms, release window, or price are currently available. Yacht Club Games says its still "in the thick of development," but the teams will have more to share soon. Those who attend PAX East this weekend will be the first to play Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon.
