Shovel Knight was originally released last year for the Nintendo Wii U and 3DS. Announced at PlayStation Experience to be headed to Sony consoles, it was simultaneously revealed that Kratos, the main character from God of War, would appear in the PlayStation version of the game. The Xbox version of the game, announced at this year’s Game Developers Conference, will feature an appearance from the Battletoads.

Shovel Knight is digging its way through the platforms. Which one will you be picking it up on?
