Shovel Knight Showdown

Yacht Club Games has unveiled its “all-new game” for Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove and it’s a real doozy. Shovel Knight Showdown essentially adds a four player battle mode with 16 different characters to battle with. This is one of two final components in the studio’s post-launch support, the other being King of Cards, which receives a release date later this week.

As for Shovel Knight Showdown, it will be coming to all platforms that have Treasure Trove for free. It will also be available as a standalone purchase, but not on the Nintendo 3DS or PlayStation Vita. The content it offers is pretty extensive. Along with a 4 player battle mode that includes characters like Shovel Knight, Shield Knight, King Knight, Specter Knight and so on, there will be 1v1 duels as well.

Players can also team up cooperatively to fight AI enemies. Available modes will include Gem Clash, Showdown, and so on. Furthermore, the Story Mode will offer a “multistage journey” for each character with a “rival”, various opponents, minigames, and an “all-new final encounter”. New stages, new songs, and much more will be coming. For actual gameplay, check out IGN’s video below.
