Yacht Club Games has announced that their popular title, Shovel Knight, has now sold over 1.2 million units across all platforms. One million of those were digital copies of the game while 200,000 of them were physical. In order to celebrate this milestone, Shovel Knight will be offered for 33% off all platforms throughout the month.
“Thank you everyone for your unending support. We couldn’t be happier that Shovel Knight is still loved and played years after its release. To celebrate it crossing a million, we’ll be discounting Shovel Knight at 33% off for a week at various times this month on every store it’s released on (Nintendo Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, Sony PS4, Sony PS3, PlayStation Vita, Steam, GOG, Humble Store, and Amazon Fire TV) .”
We also have a look at which platforms performed better than others in this handy pie chart. In terms of Nintendo consoles, the Wii U version pulled in 17% of sales while the Nintendo 3DS version pulled in 29%.
There’s still lots to look forward to when it comes to Shovel Knight, so I wish Yacht Club luck in their future endeavors with the franchise!
