In the past few hours the developers of the indie studio Yacht Club Games have published a long one post celebratory on their official website to celebrate the five years since the release of Shovel Knight. On the occasion of this anniversary, the software house also announced that Shovel Knight has officially passed the 2 million and a half of copies sold all over the globe.

The small independent project has come a long way, and the developers wanted to tell the whole story of this Hero in the celebratory post, born as any Kickstarter, and even finished in titles of the caliber of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
