Shovel Knight IMG

Scratch the 9th of April release date from your calendars, as Yacht Club Games has revealed the next major update for Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove – comprised of Shovel Knight: King of Cards and Shovel Knight Showdown – has been delayed. This applies to the digital update, the physical editions and even extends to the amiibo three-pack.

In a post on its official website, Yacht Club Games said it estimated the delay would be several months, at most. The aim is to have the new games on the card for the upcoming physical launch and to ensure everything is released at once. This will require a little more time, as a result. A new release date will be announced when the developer is absolutely sure the game is ready to go.

As this is not being classed as a major delay, social media and website updates about King of Cards and Showdown will continue to be shared. Recently, the team has been busy polishing up the course design in King of Cards and fleshing out the experience in Showdown with a story mode. The developer has also allocated time to testing and localising the game in nine different languages.

How do you feel about this delay? Will you be playing King of Cards and Showdown when they are finally released? Tell us in the comments.
