In news that no one could possible predict, Yacht Club Games’ smash game’s titular character Shovel Knight will be a playable character in motorcycle racer and Road Rash spiritual successor Road Redemption.
You may remember my preview from in the fall, in which I practically raved about how great it was the entire time. Well it’s received a score of updates since then, and has only gotten better. Not only does it handle incredibly well now, but there is a bike and character select–which is where our hero Shovel Knight will make his appearance.
I haven’t had a chance to try him out yet as the update isn’t live yet, but if the music from Shovel Knight appears in the game as well, I will be beyond a happy camper.
Road Redemption is available on Steam and is currently 35% off, sitting at a mere $12.99. You owe it to yourself to buy it now.
