Shovel Knight is a wonderful game always getting numerous updates. Therefore, what’s one more?! The multiplayer expansion Shovel Knight Showdown was just announced today!
This DLC sees up to four players duke it out as characters from the indie hit. Because the update is basically a Shovel Knight fighting game, gamers choose from a one-on-one battle, four-player free-for-all, or form teams to battle enemy AI. Various modes flesh out the expansion, including Gem Clash (fighters must collect enough stones to emerge victoriously); Showdown; and Story, which is tailor-made to each individual and features a new boss encounter. Additionally, extra levels, music, and over 16 personalities round out Showdown.
Shovel Knight Showdown will cost $9.99 by itself. It is free for owners of the all-inclusive Treasure Trove edition. A Switch and Wii U launch are expected next year, with the 3DS version being ignored completely.
Yacht Club Games just keeps going like the Energizer Bunny. I’m so pumped for everything that comes out for this fantastic indie. Check out an action-packed trailer below!
