Yacht Club Games Mentions Possibility of a ‘Shovel Knight 64-Type Game’

Yacht Club Games has quickly teased the possibility of a Nintendo 64-style Shovel Knight game.

Over on Twitter, a user commented on an announcement that Shovel Knight had surpassed 2.5 million in sales and asked if there was a sequel in the works. Yacht Club answered the user, “We’re still working on wrapping up all of the content we promised for Treasure Trove. King of Cards and Showdown will complete the saga, for now.”

Yacht Club Games also asked what kind of sequel the audience would like to see, and another user said “Is Shovel Knight 64 a possible option? There’s still not enough 3D platformers and I really miss them.”

As the studio is working to complete the content promised for the Treasure Trove release, surely the team is looking at ways to grow the Shovel Knight franchise. Considering Shovel Knight’s content drops have almost come to an end, a 3D platformer could certainly be in the cards.

It was also announced back in February that the Shovel Knight: King of Cards received a several month delay, pushing back its original release date of April 2019.

Quite a lot of time has passed since OnlySP last covered Shovel Knight, so check out the review here.

For last year’s April Fool’s Day, Yacht Club Games teased the public with a timely Shovel Knight 64 video.

Ubisoft Discusses How Uplay Plus Will Improve Communication With Players

Published

Ubisoft Uplay+

Ubisoft believes that its new subscription service Uplay Plus will help the publisher improve communication with players.

Alain Corre, the executive director of EMEA at Ubisoft, spoke to GamesIndustry.biz where he outlined the vision and strategy for the company’s new subscription service. He explained that Uplay Plus will help boost communication with players, and the feedback it receives will help improve Ubisoft’s games.

“The reason behind our subscription service… it gives more possibilities for our fans to play our games and we can talk to them. We can keep them in our worlds, we can discuss with them and—thanks to what they say and the way they behave—we can feed that back into our games development. When we are in control of that within our ecosystem, we feel it’s beneficial for our fans. That’s ultimately what we want to do; we want to have more contact with them, more interaction, listening more to what they want and improve based on what they say.”

Corre highlighted that Ubisoft will not solely focus its efforts on Uplay Plus; players will still be able to pick up any of the publishers games either physically or as digital downloads. He explained that the company’s strategy moving into a subscription service is to adapt with modern consumer tends of gamers.

“We are still keeping the traditional model whether they buy our games in a store or download them. It’s really a case of offering the possibilities. Consumers are evolving really fast, and we want to adapt to what they want and propose new things to them, as well as keep the other means of distribution.”

Furthermore Ubisoft revealed that Uplay Plus and all past and future games will be available on the Google Stadia. Ubisoft was an early vocal supporter of Google’s new console, especially as the upcoming console focuses solely on streaming games.
