I‘m not going to introduce Shovel Knight to you because I know that you know damn well what the darling indie game of 2014 is all about. But what I am going to remind you about is that at this point Shovel Knight is only available on PC, Mac, Linux, Wii U and 3DS.

That’s quite a few platforms, but most notable is the fact that Nintendo was the only console company to have its hands on the title. That’s all about to change this month as the Knight in shining shovel is poised to be released on Xbone, PS3, PS4 and PS Vita. And just like how the Xbox release will include a special appearance by the Battletoads, the Sony releases will include a boss battle against Kratos from the God of War series.

I can’t say that the choice of Kratos gives me the same excitement as the radical Rash, Pimple and Zitz, but he does look pretty cool in action. Check out the announcement video below, and watch for Shovel Knight on your Sony systems April 21st.
