Greetings to all backers of Mighty No. 9, from Yacht Club Games! For more than a year after our own successful Kickstarter, we’ve been hard at work on our game Shovel Knight, and now it’s finally available! If you haven’t heard of it, Shovel Knight is a love letter to the NES games of our youth, infused with everything we’ve learned about game design since then (not to mention guest compositions by Mighty No. 9’s own Manami Matsumae!). We love everything about the Mighty No. 9 project, so we’re going to do something special. Exclusively for Mighty Beckers, we now reveal a secret code for Shovel Knight! Just enter this at the name entry screen to activate it:
(Note from the Mighty No. 9 Team: Backers Only! You’ll find the code HERE on the Mighty Forums!)
As lifelong fans of Mega Man and the brilliant minds behind it, we attempted to bring some of that magic to Shovel Knight. Please enjoy it on PC, Wii U, or 3DS; maybe it will temporarily relieve the dull pain of having to wait for Mighty No. 9!

Shovel Knight is available as a digital download on Wii U/3Ds eShop, Humble Store, andSteam. In fact, here’s a few codes from the team at Yacht Club that a few lucky Beckers can use to download the game right now (NA eStore only right now, sorry!)! (First come, first served! ;)
