Shovel Knight comes exclusively to the Amazon Fire TV

Shovel Knight is a great game that has made its rounds on the big consoles and is now making its exclusive non-console debut on the Amazon Fire TV. The game has received high marks on every platform, garnering a Metacritic score between 85 and 92 on all gaming systems it’s been released on. In a sea of retro influenced titles, Shovel Knight stands out among the crowd by not only looking retro, but also playing as good, if not better, than the great NES side-scrolling games of our past. If you grew up playing the NES greats, you’ll pick up on influences from Mega Man, Ninja Gaiden, Zelda, Castlevania and others in Shovel Knight. Even though the game borrows from the greats, it feels fresh and doesn’t come off as derivative. Shovel Knight is included in the new Fire TV Gaming Edition, along with DuckTales: Remastered, which is not yet available. Of Course, existing Fire TV owners can also play the game.

    What do you mean by exclusive in the title? Does that mean it’s not coming to android tv or apple tv?

    Ducktales: remastered and shovel knights are said to be included with the fire tv gaming edition. However when I searched for the games on the fire tv, it asks me to pay for it. Will I get an email to claim the games or should it show up automatically?
