Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon

Ready to dig in? This week on the NXpress Nintendo PodcastCameron DaxonMarc Kaliroff, and Campbell Gill are joined by Yacht Club Games’ marketing manager, Celia Schilling, for a wide-ranging interview about all this Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon ahead of its December 13 release. Pocket Dungeon represents an exciting moment for the Shovel Knight series, effectively inventing a new genre and bringing Yacht Club’s mascot hero to the world of puzzle gaming for the first time. Celia gives the host a detailed breakdown about how the game came to be, what it takes to keep the game interesting for players of all skill levels, and why the Trouple King is so adorable–all this and more!

Be sure to stay tuned for Marc’s quick indie spotlight on the delightful A Short Hike, a wonderfully relaxed game that the hosts take turns celebrating–before devolving into a discussion of backlogs, Persona 5, and the struggles of adulting. What can you say, they really dug themselves into a hole…
