Nicalis has announced another indie game cameo for the upcoming Blade Strangers fighter, and it is none other than the infamous grave warrior Shovel Knight. He will come up with quotes from Cave Story and Isaac from Isaac's bondage.
As you may guess from the unveiled trailer, Shovel Knights Sprite is a bit, uh, buffer this time. The character, however, is remarkably detailed, and he comes up with some familiar moves from his own game. You can see the short trailer below. Shovel Knight has appeared in a number of games since his debut, including Gunvolt 2 who is also seen as a playable character in Blade Strangers.
Here is the current complete list, which now includes 1
- Shovel Knight ( Shovel Knife )
- Gunvolt ( Azure Striker Gunvolt )
- Isaac ( The binding of Isaac )
- Quotation ( Cave Story + )
- Curly Brace ( Cave History + )
