Xbox One Retail Version Of Shovel Knight Cancelled

Shovel Knight

Shovel Knight will be releasing on a physical disc for the first time ever very soon, but it looks like the Xbox One version of the game may never happen now.

All retail versions were delayed to November 3rd and have seen a prince increase from $19.99 to $24.99 (to ensure display space at certain retailers). Here’s what Yacht Club Games has to say regarding the state of the Xbox One retail version of Shovel Knight:

We really gave it our best effort, but unfortunately, because of publishing policies on that platform that are totally beyond our control, we couldn’t make it happen. We’re very sorry…we know there is a lot of interest – the pre-orders were really good and we thank everyone for their support!

We’ll keep fighting to get a retail version on Xbox One, but as of now, the boxed version is in indefinite limbo. The digital version of Shovel Knight on Xbox One is already available and will, of course, continue to receive new updates and our full support!
