Yacht Club Games has announced that Shovel Knight has officially hit two million units sold.
This announcement comes from the studio in a recent blog post, recounting the long journey Shovel Knight took to get to this point. Shovel Knight was Kickstarted back in early 2013, starting off on Wii U, 3DS, and PC, before being ported to Playstation 4, Vita, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and more platforms later on. The game hit one million units after 18 months after release, but took another 26 months from that point to hit two million. During this time, Shovel Knight has had two DLC expansions, multiple Shovel Knight guest appearances, his own line of amiibo, and much more.
Yacht Club has also detailed the platforms where those two million units come from.
The PC version sold the best, following the 3DS version, then the Nintendo Switch. These numbers include not only the game’s original release, but also the Treasure Trove re-release with the paid DLC.
To get the full breakdown of the milestone, and how they got here, you can check out the Yacht Club Games’ blog post here.
To celebrate the recent milestone, Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove will be 20% off for a week. This means any version of the game including the Nintendo Switch, Wii U, PS4, Steam, etc. And don’t forget, all versions of Treasure Trove include all the DLC as well as one final campaign, King of Cards, as a free update once it’s ready.
