You want a classy, stylish 8 bit platformer that doesn't take itself too seriously? Here you go. You want music from Manami Matsumae, composer of classic Mega Man songs? Done. Oh what's that? You want some Zelda, Castlevania, Ducktales and Dark Souls too? No problem! How about playable bosses, a challenge mode and multiplayer? Done! From Yacht Club Games, Shovel Knight now has a release date of March 31st for PC, 3DS and WiiU!
