Shovel Knight Brings Original Mega Man Composer Onboard
Fans of the Mega Man series of games may recognize the name of Manami Matsumae. She composed the music for a respectable number of Capcom titles, including the original Mega Man and Mega Man 10.
Yacht Club Games announced today that Matsumae will be lending her musical talent to compose a number of songs for their upcoming title, Shovel Knight. The game was successfully funded on Kickstarter a few days ago.
Shovel Knight is a 2D platformer that’s largely inspired by games like Castlevania and Mega Man, so it only makes sense that they’d bring Matsumae onboard. She will be contributing at least two songs to the game.
Shovel Knight is in development for the PC, Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. The Kickstarter remains open to pledges, and just passed its 100k stretch goal.
