Shovel Knight is finally arriving this week, and to celebrate, Yacht Club Games has released a launch trailer. After rocketing past its $75,000 Kickstarter goal in April 2013, Yacht Club has been hard at work finishing up the 8-bit nostalgia piece.

In his preview last year, Tim Turi described Shovel Knight as a “rock-solid hybrid of Capcom’s Duck Tales and Mega Man games.” You can see how true that is in the trailer below.

Shovel Knight will be out on June 26 for Wii U, 3DS, and PC.
