Shovel Knight Showdown

The Shovel Knight hype train seemed to be rolling at speed, especially after the announcement of the fighting game-esque Shovel Knight Showdown. However, Yacht Club Games has announced a delay for Shovel Knight Showdown and Shovel Knight: King of Cards, the latter being the final story expansion for the game. Originally slated to release on April 9th, the developed has confirmed that they’ve been delayed by “several months”.

If that weren’t enough, the physical edition of Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove has also been delayed. The developer said, “We need a little more time to make this happen, and so we are pushing the release back one last time. We’re still aiming to release everything at once, so this this delay applies to everything: physical editions, digital update, and Treasure Trove amiibo 3-pack.”

It did note that this wasn’t a “major delay” as much as “more space to bring everything together for a polished and complete finale. As always, these last steps require coordination with many teams beyond our own.” Due to any disappointment caused by the delay, the development team has confirmed that a new date will not be announced “until we know one for sure, from all partners involved. All builds shipped out, updates ready to launch, for everybody and everyone. We will announce it for good once it is 100 percent all across the board!”

Shovel Knight: King of Cards will feature over 30 courses – though they’re shorter than the base game’s levels – and King Knight as the protagonist. Shovel Knight Showdown is also fairly massive, with numerous characters, modes, configurations, and a Story Mode as well. If you own Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove, then both King of Cards and Showdown will be free for you.
