Shovel Knight Hits a Milestone!

Since its launch earlier this year, we’ve learned that Shovel Knight—the Kickstarter-funded retro style platformer game—has sold 300,000 copies. That’s a great showing for an independent title! Yacht Club Game released this news, and earlier this year they’d shared sales figures when there were over 180,000 units sold.

Available on Wii U, 3DS, and PC, Shovel Knight has been a critical and commercial hit so far. Notably, the game has only been available in Europe for about a month (despite its launch in North America in June).

How many of our readers bought a copy of the game? Are you among the 300,000?

Faith likes games and books and cake and writing and Lara Croft, not necessarily in that order. She also thinks a Skylanders cartoon show is a really, REALLY good idea...
