Yacht Club Games has a 'MEGA ANNOUNCEMENT' coming February 1


‘Groundbreaking’ reveal coming Tuesday

Top-notch indie developer Yacht Club Games has announced that it will be holding its third “Yacht Club Games Presents” presentation on Tuesday, February 1. The studio states that the show will feature exciting updates and an exciting and groundbreaking “mega announcement.”

“You’ve been patient and we’ve been hard at work!” said the studio in a blog post. “We’re proud to announce that the 3rd official Yacht Club Games Presents will be hosted on G4’s Twitch channel. We’ll be focusing on a selection of games that have brand new content currently in development! We also have a hair-raisingly exciting MEGA ANNOUNCEMENT! You do not want to miss this historic event!”

Historic? Groundbreaking? Mega? It certainly sounds like the Shovel Knight developer has something pretty mighty up its sleeve. While it would be very easy to leap to the conclusion that Yacht Club is preparing to reveal a Shovel Knight sequel, there is a lot of interesting entendre at play here. “Groundbreaking” suggests a possible team-up, but also references the act of digging itself, “Mega” has connotations with Mega Man, which is a key influence in the YCG world. It’s quite the riddle.

Or maybe my meds just haven’t kicked in and I’m looking way too deeply into all of this.

Either way, it’s sure to be an exciting reveal. If you want to check it out live, then tune in to the G4TV Twitch channel on Tuesday, February 1 at 14:00 PT / 17:00 ET / 23:00 BST to catch all of the hot scoops. And if you can’t make it, then sweat ye not, as we’ll be sure to bring you the lowdown right here on Destructoid. In the meantime, maybe check out the great Shovel Knight: Pocket Dungeon, which is now available on PS4, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
