Shovel Cropped

Shovel Knight fans, today is your lucky day! Well, actually, the 9th April 2019 is your lucky day, as that date sees the release of almost too many Shovel Knight goodies all at the same time. Buckle your seatbelts.

Shovel Knight Showdown, a Super Smash Bros. style brawler which we actually reported on yesterday, is doubling up with the previously announced Shovel Knight: King of Cards (the third story expansion) to release on that date. Releasing two sets of DLC on the same day might seem like a strange decision, but that all makes sense when you see the next item on Yacht Club Games' list.

Yes, Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove - the complete Shovel Knight experience which features the base game and all available DLC - is receiving a physical edition on 9th April. This physical edition will be available in both North America and Europe, and will also remain available as a digital download on the Nintendo eShop. The physical copy will cost $39.99.


Also on that very same day, the previously revealed three-pack of amiibo figures, featuring Plague Knight, Specter Knight, and King Knight will be released.
