      1. Nintendo First Order Commander Quadraxis

        ||90% of you do not have the ability to think in a 3 dimensional or higher way, that’s why you do not agree and accept any filth that comes your way…||


    The moment I saw this article I was gonna say a Mega Man game since Mighty No. 9 was apparently a botched job, but look at all these choices. How to decide.

    Oh P3.

  2. Make a 4 person multiplayer dungeon crawl game with online connectivity. Shovel knight style, bosses, loot, booty, ladies and glory!

    Hell, they’ve got my support. Just make something wicked.

  3. Shovel kart hands fucking down, not even close. Most interesting choice by far,I feel like it’s almost on there as a bluff to see if people really would want it. A kart racer with all of the knights and tracks based on levels/overall world/whatever would be really good. A good kart racer is always fucking needed, ESPECIALLY if they still stuck with an old school snes mario kart look (with online). Rest of the options would be fine but it is just going to feel as good as stuff you have seen before, not saying a shovel knight kart wouldn’t feel like mario but mario kart does not have enough competition at all, really good genre but not huge. Outside of that, shovel knight 2, it’s really good and any more of it would be appreciated.

  4. I really like Shovel Knight, but I would like to see them produce a new IP in the Zelda or Metroid vein like they put forward. They haven’t even finished everything they’re putting into SK1, save the sequel for afterwards!

    That said, the Shovel Knight and Shield Knight prequel does have my attention too; maybe they could use it to explain some of the OoNQ’s background (Polar Knight’s relation to Shovel Knight, for example).

  5. I Voted for Shovel Knight 2, Mega Man, Mario RPG, and zelda styled games. The original Shovel Knight did everything the Mega Man series did but at it’s best if not better so if they actually did a Mega Man clone omg it would be glorious

  7. I wanna see Shovel Knight 2 and a Metroid-like title from them. Actually, they should combine those two ideas and make a Shovel Knight Metroid hybrid. It’d be so sick! I mean, he’s already got some sick powerups, so I think it would fit really well in a metroidvania game.
