Players have been begging for years for Yatch Club’s Shovel Knight to appear in a Smash Bros. game — and when he showed up as an Assist Trophy, there was a disgruntled contingent flustered at the missed opportunity.

If you’re wondering why Nintendo would pass up on a hot property like Shovel Knight, well…

…they may not have. Looks like Shovel Knight was taken! (Or, at least for the platform genre — it’s not like he doesn’t already show up in every other fighting game.)

While there is no official release date yet for the Blue Shoveler, the trailer shows that he sticks pretty close to his original platformer appearance — Mobile Gear, War Horn, Propeller Dagger, and more give him a wide variety of projectiles and mobility options unique to his character.

Hey, I'm just a 3D-head in a 2D-world. I like pretty much all FGC stuff, and I really like hearing about the way people think about games.
