Shovel Knight is Appearing in Yooka-Laylee!

No, we’re not making this up. Playtonic Games have announced that Shovel Knight is appearing in Yooka-Laylee. Here’s a picturing showing him in game:

As well as a trailer featuring him in action:

His role isn’t known as of yet, but it’s best to assume he’ll be an NPC you’ll interact with in levels. Maybe he gives you a sidequest or something? Or you have to bring him a certain item for a Pagie?

Either way, it’s a guest appearance by the star of one great indie game in another, and something we can’t wait to find out more about it come Yooka-Laylee’s release!

But what do you think? Are you interested by the prospect of Shovel Knight in Yooka-Laylee? And for that matter, what would you think about the opposite happening at some point?

That's interesting. I mean, I've never played Shovel Knight so I'm not really gushing about it, but it's pretty cool.
