Shovel Knight Dig () from Nitrome and Yacht Club Games is this week’s new Apple Arcade release. It is definitely one of my favorite additions to the service ever, and a fantastic game overall. I played it a few hours ago when it started rolling out, and absolutely love everything about it. IT has a new Shovel Knight story and style as well. Regardless of if you love Shovel Knight or if you’re new to the games, Shovel Knight Dig is an essential on Apple Arcade. It has that signature Nitrome polish as well. Check it out here on Apple Arcade. Watch the Shovel Knight Dig gameplay trailer below to see how it looks in action:
