Shovel Ready Music [ IMAGE ]

I’m a huge fan of respecting the source material. And enough though neither the screen’s aspect ratio nor Shovel Knight‘s use of the NES’ color palette would have been possible using the original native hardware, it’s still nice to see that they went the extra mile to make sure that the soundtrack was.

    Almost. The sound will work on a Japanese NES, but not a European or American NES, as the music was designed to target the VCR6 memory mapper / sound chip, which gave an extra 3 sound channels, but only the Japanese NES had the extra connections necessary for the chip to work.
