Microsoft announced that Shovel Knight—along with a whole host of other indies—would be coming to Xbox One through the company’s ID@Xbox indie initiative yesterday during GDC. Shortly after the announcement, Shovel Knight developer posted the above teaser video in which Rash, Zit, and Pimple arrive on Shovel Knight’s world in their bird-like ship and debark in all their pixelated toad glory.
Yacht Club has yet to announce a specific release date for Shovel Knight’s jump to Xbox One, they they have said it’s coming “soon.”
Shovel Knight originally debuted on 3DS, Wii U, and PC last summer. PS4, PS3, and Vita versions are slated to launch April 21.
