Shovel Knight PS4 Playstation 4 Art

Yacht Club Games' critically acclaimed side-scroller Shovel Knight will tunnel to the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita from 21st April in North America. The hugely successful title originally deployed on the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U last year, but was announced for Sony's systems at PlayStation Experience in December. There's no word on a European date, but hopefully it won't be too far behind.

The release will comprise the finale of the Japanese giant's outrageous Spring Fever promotion, which is set to run for seven weeks starting from 3rd March. As such, if you pick up the cross-buy title before 27th April, you'll be able to take advantage of a 10 per cent PlayStation Plus discount, making the final price $13.49. Everyone else will have to pay $14.99. Will you be digging into this popular platformer on your favourite PlayStation machine? Turn the earth in the comments section below.
