Yacht Club Games just keeps the content coming! Indie sensation Shovel Knight has received numerous updates and expansions since its debut four years ago, but the fun isn’t done yet. This past weekend, the development team teased that an all-new game is headed to Treasure Trove, and today we have the big reveal!
The next big thing headed to the game is Shovel Knight Showdown, a local multiplayer battle expansion that’s due out in 2019. Showdown will contain a number of new multiplayer game modes for up to four players. You’ll have sixteen playable characters to choose from, including Black Knight, Plague Knight, Propeller Knight, Polar Knight, Shield Knight, Specter Knight, and of course, Shovel Knight himself.
New game modes include Showdown itself, Gem Clash, and a new Story Mode. 10 minutes of Gem Clash footage is available already, and you can check it out above. This expansion will cost $9.99 on its own, but it’s free to Treasure Trove owners. Unfortunately, it will not be available on Nintendo 3DS or PlayStation Vita, but all other versions of Shovel Knight will receive it.
