Mona Shovel Knight

One of the highlights during the Yacht Club Games presentation was the reveal of the official Shovel Knight Showdown trailer. The development team behind it has put everything into the game, to make sure it is a standout brawler when it is released.

If you're like us, though, and have been wondering when this one will show up on the Switch, unfortunately, you're not going to get an exact release date today. All we do know is that it will be released at some point in December as a standalone game and free update to Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove. The big reveal in the trailer below was Mona, who was one of the main characters in the Plague of Shadows expansion.

Not long after the trailer was shown, it was mentioned more of this game would be revealed over the coming months. This will include a look at new characters, modes, and stages. For now, try to spot the additional surprises in the clip below:
