Shovel Knight, one of the greatest original characters in video games in quite some time, will be making a special guest appearance in Yooka-Laylee.
Just yesterday Playtonic games dropped a new trailer for Yooka-Laylee over at an EGX panel. The trailer saw our first look at some of the games supporting cast as well as revealed Shovel Knight as a special guest. It would seem Yacht Club Games was approached about the idea by Playtonic after Yooka-Laylee publisher Team 17, brought up the idea of having a guest character.
This isn’t the first guest appearance Shovel Knight has made either. He also appeared in Azure Striker Gunvolt 2, Pixel Noir, and is set to be in Blood Stained Ritual of the Night just to name a few. Either way, this is fantastic news and Yooka-Laylee still looks incredible. Check out the new trailer below.
