It’s been almost a year since Shovel Knight’s Kickstarter raked in over $300,000 for the team at Yacht Club Games, as the newly-formed studio promised an all-new 8-bit platformer for Wii U, 3DS and PC before the end of 2013.
Having already been delayed into March 2014 late last year, the independent developer has once again decided to postpone the release to allow extra development time. With no firm release window given at this time, Yacht Club can now take its time and add the following last-minute touches to the game:
- Dialogue and scripted events are being finalized
- Finishing touches put on level design for the final levels
- Overall game balancing
- Platform specific standards so everything runs smoothly on your system of choice!
- Testing, testing, testing… on all platforms!
