Perhaps you’ve heard of the very popular Kickstarter game Shovel Knight. It was released in 2014 before quickly becoming a fan favorite. Friday brought an announcement that will please fans of the game as Shovel Knight joins the cast of Super Smash Bros: Ultimate as an assist trophy. Who wouldn’t want that?
Take a look:

I love that they show an animal crossing character being buried, and is that a turkey dinner I see? It’s hard to imagine why even poor Waluigi can’t be part of the game, but Shovel Knight can. None the less, this is definitely an exciting addition to an already highly anticipated release. I look forward to seeing what other characters get added as the release date grows closer.
Super Smash Bros: Ultimate will release on December 7, 2018. Yep, just in time for Christmas, so be sure to add it to your list!
