Shovel Knight, the indie platformer hero with a set of blue armor and a particular shovel, has been across the block and cameo’d in fairly a couple of video games. Now, the knight is coming to Ubisoft’s For Honor, or at the least his armor is.
For Honor is all about massive fighters brawling it out with melee weaponry, so the fighters may have entry to his massive, blue, horned helmet, in addition to another Shovel Knight-impressed outfits, emotes, and executions. These are all pleasingly pixelated, harking back to the Shovel Knight artwork type, which is a bit anachronistic in For Honor, but it surely nonetheless scores main type factors.
Shovel Knight has been weirdly frequent as a cameo in different video games, maybe due to the sport’s reputation. He — together with different characters from the unique platformer — present up in Prepare dinner, Serve, Scrumptious: Battle Kitchen, Street Redemption, Rivals of Aether, Brawlhalla, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Knight, Crypt of the NecroDancer, Yooka-Laylee, and he’s even an help trophy in Tremendous Smash Bros. Final.
For Honor has joined that listing, however the animations and outfits will solely be obtainable till March 4.
