Is it weird that Shovel Knight is now a playable character in Road Redemption, the spiritual successor to Road Rash? Like, really weird? Yes, of course it is. It is also, however, kind of awesome to see our beloved, blue-suited hero smacking people with a shovel at unlawful speeds. If Croaker were around, he might call the whole situation a cycle of violence.

Road Redemption is currently available via Steam Early Access.

Yacht Club Games and Dark Seas Games have teamed up to bring Shovel Knight to Road Redemption, a spiritual successor to Road Rash. All owners of Road Redemption will be able to play as Shovel Knight as of December 22, 2014.

"This incarnation of our stalwart, blue hero could not have us more excited and I can't wait until he crosses the generational gap from pixels to glorious polygons in Road Redemption." - Nick Wozniak of Yachtclub Games

"Shovel Knight is basically Road Redemption's version of The Terminator. He's this plate-armored unstoppable juggernaut, and it's great to have the opportunity to include him in our game." -Ian Fisch of Darkseas Games
