Steel thy shovel
Just in case you were somehow still on the fence, Shovel Knight will be joining the roster of Nicalis’ crossover fighter Blade Strangers. We’re still only a few days off of the announcement of Gunvolt, Quote, and Isaac yet Nicalis keeps surprising me.
SHOVEL KNIGHT Bounces Into Action!
The valiant indie legend swings his Shovel Blade for everlasting peace!

This brings the current roster up to a healthy fourteen:
- Shovel Knight
- Isaac (The Binding of Isaac)
- Gunvolt (Azure Striker Gunvolt)
- Quote (Cave Story+)
- Curly Brace (Cave Story+)
- Solange (Code of Princess EX)
- Ali (Code of Princess EX)
- Liongate (Code of Princess EX)
- Master T (Code of Princess EX)
- Kawase (Umihara Kawase series)
- Noko (Umihara Kawase series)
- Emiko (Umihara Kawase series)
- Lina (all-new character)
- Helen (all-new character)
It’s sure to feel bittersweet launching poor Emiko up into the air with a shovel, but I’m looking forward to the experience. Blade Strangers is coming to PS4, Switch, and PC this summer.
