The Shovel Knight Finale!

Posted by Yacht Club Games (Creator)

The Shovel Knight saga is almost complete! Soon, the final Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove games (Shovel Knight: King of Cards and Shovel Knight Showdown) will finally be released!

The completion of Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove warrants something special to celebrate. Something decidedly physical! Which is why we're happy to announce a physical version of Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove on Switch and PS4. If you're interested, you can find out more over at our site.

Even more importantly, the complete Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove has a release date! This means everything, including:

All of these arrive next year on the very same day: April 9th, 2019. The physical and digital versions of the game will all be available simultaneously. Of course, all backer copies of Shovel Knight included! Save that date!

* Shovel Knight Showdown not available on 3DS or Vita.

During the release of Specter of Torment we received many requests to synchronize the update across each and every platform (there are quite a lot…!). For this most grand finale, we are going to do our best to make that happen! We hope everyone enjoys jumping into King Knight’s adventure and battle mode together at the same time! Until then, there’s plenty left for us to do across all of these games!

Combined with our Shovel Knight Showdown reveal… well, that’s a lot of news! Stay tuned to and @YachtClubGames this coming month because we’re going to keep the Showdown news rolling in!

We hope you’re all excited for the final campaign and mode additions to the Shovel Knight project. After all this, it's finally drawing to a close! Thank you so much for supporting Yacht Club Games from the very beginning and making this all possible. We couldn’t be happier to deliver on Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove’s full Kickstarter promises – after all, Shovel Knight turns 5 years old next year!

      Wow, this Kickstarter has been a long journey! I'm impressed at you guys spending this much time and effort creating content for all those stretch goals. I'm fairly sure the stretch goal money amounts have been well exceeded in actual costs, ha!

      Very excited to see the physical version of Treasure Trove coming to Switch but really sad there won't be a physical version for 3DS! The 3D and pixel-perfect resolution in that version made it my favorite one to play!

      You guys are amazing, keeping to your original promises from Kickstarter ages ago, through thick and thin. Very respectable! I love your work, and look forward to the next installment. I don't have any platform besides pc, but I'll try to throw some more cash your way for your more-than-fair devotion to this wonderful game!

      I'm very excited that there will be a definitive release of Shovel Knight!

      The only last minute feedback I have for the big April launch date for the Grand Finale is this...

      Change that box art please. I mean I love the whole Mega Man-esque "cram as many characters on the box as possible...." as much as the next person... but it's a bit ugly.

      What would be nice though is if the art for the Shovel Knight vinyl soundtrack is used;

      Possibly a reversible cover that uses this piece of art. Or even maybe something more simplistic in style. Something similar to this;

      Just want something really classy for the box art that makes it feel like a definitive version.

      You guys made something great and beautiful and of course imma double dip for that sweet physical Switch version :D

      i can't wait for what you make next! (but take a well deserved breather!)

      It's so great that this all started on Kickstarter and then became something that will appear in the next Smash Bros. and got an amiibo, even. Great work guys and I can't wait for this.
