While Yacht Club Games recently talked about future plans involving their shovel wielding hero, it seems the developer’s next project will be something different. In an interview with NextN, Yacht Club was asked about the future. Comparing themselves to Nintendo, Yacht Club talked about developing different franchises that retain Shovel Knight’s flavour. This might mean that Yacht Club’s next game moves away from the platforming genre or their distinctive 8-bit style. What would you like to see next from the developer? Tell us below.
Q: Some time ago, Yatch Club Games confirmed that, in 2017, you would work on a completely new project. Can you give us a little preview of what we could expect from it? Will it be completely different from Shovel Knight?
A: It will probably be something that is very different than Shovel Knight, but still retains our distinctive Yacht Club Flavor. Nintendo made Mario, Zelda, and Metroid, but they are all distinctly Nintendo. I’d love to make another franchise that people love even more than Shovel Knight!
