    Looks pretty good. Reminds me of Batman for NES with all the wall jumping. I didn’t really like how Plague Knight controlled, but I’ll give Specter Knight a shot.

    Holy shit, it looks like a new game compared to Shovel Knight’s and Plague Knights campaign. I’m so fucking excited.

    Some of the game mechanics remind me of Dustforce. Pretty cool.

    So are you a bad guy in this? I mean you are playing Specter Knight, but he was fighting the evil knights, but it also looked like he was allied with the Enchantress still.

    It also seem you were going up against Shield Knight. It’s been awhile, but Shovel Knight and her were together at the end of the first game. I wonder what happened to him.

    Part of me wants to buy it again… I own it for Wii-U and 3DS… These guys deserve money thrown at them… Might get it for ps4. If anything I’ll also get trophies

    YachtCulb is keeping their words. But man does this game feels like it should worth more now.
