Shovel Knight is becoming something of an indie darling.  It has met and surpassed its Kickstarter goal. It will be playable on PC and, as previously reported, it is also coming to Wii U and 3DS. Self described as a "hot mashup of new and old that may remind you of Mega Man."  

Well if the 8-bit inspired graphics and gameplay don't remind you of Mega Man enough, it looks like it will now sound like Mega Man too. Yacht Club Games has announced that Manami Matsumae is on board to compose two songs for the upcoming Shovel Knight.

That's her.  On the left.  

In her own words:

      " This is the first time I'm working on a Western game! It's quite exciting! Shovel Knight and I are a good fit. So... let's get shovelin'?"

For those that need to be reminded of what she has composed in the past:

Elecman's Stage Theme

Nitro Man's Theme

Cutman's Stage Theme

At time of writing Shovel Knight has met its Kickstarter goal and still has 8 days to go. They have since made a list of stretch goals that will further add content to the game. With Manami "MegaMusic" Matsumae on board, the support is likely to just keep rising.
