In a fairly bizarre crossover, Yacht Club Games and Dark Seas Games have joined together to bring Shovel Knight into the cut-throat world of Road Redeption, the spiritual successor to Road Rash.
Check out the fairly brutal trailer above where Shovel Knight takes no shit from a gang of bikers causing trouble. The armour wearing badass comes speeding out of an explosion only to be fired at by the gang, but it’s okay, his other-world armour is bulletproof!
“This incarnation of our stalwart, blue hero could not have us more excited and I can’t wait until he crosses the generational gap from pixels to glorious polygons in Road Redemption,” says Nick Wozniak of Yacht Club Games.
Shovel Knight will be landing into the Early Access version of Road Redemption right now, so what are you waiting for? Saddle up, grab your spade, and pan some no-good bikers around the head.
“Shovel Knight is basically Road Redemption’s version of The Terminator. He’s this plate-armored unstoppable juggernaut, and it’s great to have the opportunity to include him in our game,” says Ian Fisch of Darkseas Games.
