Shovel Knight reaches Kickstarter goal, stretch goals added

Screenshots of the video game Shovel Knight

Shovel Knight, the first title from indie developer Yacht Club Games, has reached its Kickstarter goal of $75,000. The retro-style game is coming to the Wii U and 3DS as an eShop title. A few stretch goals have been added to inspire more people to invest in the platformer. If the campaign raises $100,000, a New Game+ mode will be added, and there is the possibility of a four-player battle mode if they manage to raise $200,000. If they receive more than $200,000, the studio promises to deliver "More Mystery Stuff!!!"

The game was featured at this year's PAX East and received a lot of praise from attendees. Many have compared it to the classic NES games DuckTales and Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. For those of you haven't seen it yet, you can watch the reveal trailer after the break.
