I can dig it

Nicalis is having quite the busy week announcing Blade Strangers news, as the fourth character has now come in the form of everyone's favorite garden-tool wielding warrior.

Shovel Knight will be digging his way into the ranks of Blade Strangers though he seems a bit larger than his original game's stature.

Yacht Club Games' signature hero makes the jump from his platforming origins to this quickly-packed fighting game while retaining the essence of what makes him Shovel Knight.

He still jabs at his opponent using his not-so-long-range weapon of choice, digs dirt up in his opponents face and uses his downward shovel strike to bounce off of enemies. The trailer only shows one Super of Shovel Knight's as he blows Isaac away with his mighty horn

This announcement comes hot on the trails of Blade Strangers' previous announcements of Quote from Cave Story+, Azure Stiker Gunvolt and Isaac from Binding of Isaac joining the game as guest characters.

You can find his trailer after the jump and tell us how much you dig him in the comments.

Thank you Cmon_Get_Serious and KatzuyaSagara for the tips!
