Here at Wii U Daily we like to keep you abreast of Kickstarters because many of the developers who create them do so with the intention of seeing their games on console one day. With Nintendo’s new, more lenient requirements for consideration for the Wii U eShop, that goal is much more attainable. Shovel Knight is a promising 8-bit platformer that has received more than double the required funding and still has four days to go. The team have recently announced that Manami Matsume–the composer of Mega Man–will be working on the project by contributing two tracks to the soundtrack.
This is exciting news for fans, since music from the Mega Man series is some of the most memorable music to date. Matsume is excited to be working on the project as well, stating:
“This is the first time I’m working on a Western game! It’s quite exciting! Shovel Knight and I are a good fit. So… let’s get shovelin’?”
If you still haven’t backed the Kickstarter yet, you have 4 days to do so. With the addition of Matsume’s tracks, Shovel Knight is shaping up to be a true homage to the era of 8-bit gaming.
