Welcome to the Shovel Knight Wiki!

Shovel Knight is a 2D side-scrolling platform video game developed by Yacht Club Games that was initially released on June 26, 2014 for Microsoft Windows, Nintendo Wii U, and Nintendo 3DS, but was later released for OS X, Linux, PS3, PS4, PS Vita, Xbox One, Amazon Fire TV, and Nintendo Switch. Several expansions, titled Plague of Shadows and Specter of Torment, were released, as well as King of Cards and Shovel Knight Showdown expected for a future release.

The story follows a brave, shovel-wielding adventurer named Shovel Knight who is set on a quest to rescue his beloved partner Shield Knight from the Tower of Fate. However, he first must defeat The Enchantress who is protected by her Order of No Quarter, a group of eight villainous knights who have taken over the Valley.

    Comment: Yes you are. (Hopefully.) Also, it's not called being feminine, it's called being fabulous.
