Shovel Knight – The Definitive Soundtrack 2XLP

Distributed title

Our friends at Brave Wave have partnered with Yacht Club Games for the second Generation Series release, Shovel Knight: The Definitive Soundtrack

Shovel Knight began as a modest, yet highly promising Kickstarter project in March 2013. Billed as "a groundbreaking love letter to 8 bits!" by Indie developer Yacht Club Games, this 2D side-scrolling platform game released in June 2014 to universal praise and accolades. Fans and industry professionals praised Shovel Knight for its charming retro-2D visuals, humorous story, fun characters, and strong gameplay design, which all came together to offer a game that is nostalgic yet very modern. The efforts of Yacht Club Games paid off when Shovel Knight won the prestigious "Best Independent Game" award at The Game Awards 2014.

The package cover and inner-gatefold have been designed exclusively for the soundtrack by Hitoshi Ariga.
