Yacht Club Games’ retro-tastic 8-bit platformer Shovel Knight will launch on 3DS, Wii U, and PC through Steam June 26, the developer announced on the game’s Kickstarter page.

Shovel Knight and its mash-up of Mega Man and DuckTales game mechanics was originally slated to arrive on Nintendo’s consoles and Steam March 31. According to the post, the team has “official word from Nintendo and Steam” about the release date, so unlike the March release, which was bumped back to gain a few more weeks of fine-tuning, this one seems pretty definitive.

“We’ve worked 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for more than a year to bring this game to you; we’re extremely proud of the result, and we hope you love it just as much as we do,” reads the post. “We hit some snags along the way and we’re sorry that we couldn’t deliver it sooner, but, hopefully, it will prove more than worth the wait!”

Those keen on playing Shovel Knight on PC can pre-order the game now through Yacht Club Games’ official website. The standard version goes for $15, while a Deluxe edition that comes with a PDF manual and art book is available for $25.
