Shovel Knight Showdown

Posted by Yacht Club Games (Creator)

Good day, brave shovel fighters! We are very excited today to pull back the curtain and announce Shovel Knight’s final game update!

Duel with up to 4 players and scramble after gems as your favorite heroic or villainous knight in Shovel Knight Showdown. All the classic Shovel Knight characters you know and love are playable, many for the first time ever! Gather your pals for endless multiplayer clashes, or take control of your favorite character and dig into Story Mode. Familiar controls, items, and mechanics return, making this a platform fighting game that anyone can jump into and try.

Shovel Knight Showdown features local only multiplayer, and arrives as a free update to all existing versions of Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove on consoles and PC. As we mentioned in previous updates, this addition will not arrive on 3DS.

Have fun imagining how your favorite character would play! If you're going to PAX West, be sure to stop by the Yacht Club Games booth for a match or two - we’ll have the game playable for the first time!

Don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten about King of Cards either! We’re nearing the end of development on what is by far our biggest and most grandest singleplayer campaign yet! Stay tuned for information on the final release date... later this week!

      Will us 3DS backers be able to get a key for steam for this multiplayer battle?

      Interesting but, as a 3DS backer, this update functionally reduces to:
      "Have fun imagining how your favorite character would play while you wait for more information about King of Cards"
