Shovel Knight Dig is a prequel, as Yacht Membership reveals the complete timeline | WooricaGame


Hey, it’s rather a lot much less complicated than the Zelda timeline(s)

Shovel Knight Dig is out this weekend, and proper on time, Yacht Membership Video games has swooped in to offer a little bit of context to this spinoff. Nicely, prequel, truly!

Talking to Nintendo Life, Yacht Membership Video games Advertising and marketing Supervisor Celia Schilling confirmed that Dig does certainly happen earlier than the occasions of each sport/DLC:

“Story smart, Shovel Knight Dig is the primary sport within the Shovel Knight sequence. That makes it a prequel that takes place even earlier than Specter of Torment! You would possibly bear in mind the intro line from the primary Shovel Knight sport – ‘Way back, the lands had been untamed, and roamed by legendary adventurers.’ Nicely, Dig takes you again to those good ‘ol days, when Shovel Knight and Protect Knight quested collectively, combating baddies and in search of treasure! We hope followers can be to play the occasions main as much as the unique saga.”

Technically, it goes Shovel Knight Dig, then the Specter of Torment flashbacks, then King of Playing cards, then Specter of TormentShovel Knight Showdown, Plague of Shadows, Shovel of Hope (the core authentic launch), then Pocket Dungeon is formally a sequel, and the final sport within the sequence at current.

Schilling even goes into element concerning the Hexcavators (the brand new crew/dangerous man rogue’s gallery group), and why its chief (Drill Knight) wouldn’t wish to be part of the Order of No Quarter: he’d see it as a downgrade. Additionally right now, Specter Knight remains to be in his non-Order type of Donovan, and different characters are off doing different issues earlier than they meet up for the occasions of Shovel of Hope.

It’s nice to see that after eight years and counting, Yacht Membership cares sufficient about this sequence to dive into the trivialities of character-specific lore. It’s an enormous purpose why I loved Shovel Knight Dig a lot, as that Hades strategy to slowly uncovering extra concerning the sport world was so clearly current.
