It’s tough to believe, but Shovel Knight’s journey is almost at its end. After the original game’s debut way back in 2014, Shovel Knight: King of Cards and Shovel Knight Showdown will finally be wrapping things up later this year. While we’ll have to wait a bit longer than expected since a delay was announced a couple of months ago, the last bit of Shovel Knight content should be wrapped up very soon.

We recently spoke with Yacht Club Games pixel artist and animator Sandy Gordon about Shovel Knight: King of Cards and Showdown, along with a bunch of other things. Gordon commented on how the two titles have changed since we’ve first heard about them, what to expect from Showdown’s story mode, and more. Other topics include a special “Dumb Ideas” document Yacht Club Games has, Switch sales, what lies ahead for the future, and we even tried to ask about Shovel Knight’s appearance in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – with limited success.

During E3, Yacht Club Games kindly took time out of their busy schedule to meet with us for a one-on-one interview. Among the topics we discussed, pixel artist and animator Sandy Gordon revealed a design philosophy to Nintendo Everything which they made ample use of throughout development of the upcoming Shovel Knight: King of Cards expansion.

Our full interview will be going live soon, but until then you can learn a little more by checking below.

Yacht Club Games has provided a sales update on Shovel Knight. Since launch, the game has sold 2.5 million copies. That news was announced in celebration of Shovel Knight’s fifth anniversary.
