Hear ye, hear ye! Gamescom has come and gone, but not without another royal preview for the upcoming Shovel Knight: King of Cards, courtesy of GameXplain! Hark, see here new footage of the elusive free expansion to Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove—starring none other than the dashing dandy and gilded goon, King Knight, on his glorious quest to rule the realm of Pridemoor.
A real card
The direct-feed footage stars the shoulder-bashing King Knight as he makes his way through Pridemoor Keep to confront the king. You can also see more of the new card game Joustus in action:
Sadly, King of Cards and Showdown‘s release date is yet to be confirmed; Yacht Club Games delayed everything Shovel Knight from their initial April release window back in February. their we probably won’t have to wait much longer for such an announcement. Yesterday, Yacht Club Games announced a special online presentation coming this Wednesday, August 28 at 11am Pacific; the livestream will more than likely reveal new details on the remaining Treasure Trove expansions, amiibo, and more.
I remember demoing King of Cards during PAX West two years ago, but it’s certainly come quite a long way since I last saw it! I’m especially curious to give Joustus a go, though card games were never really my forte… Hopefully its release is just right around the corner.
