Shovel Knight Showdown and King of Cards DLC releases April 9

Shovel Knight’s saga will conclude on April 9 2019 with two major pieces of content – Showdown and King of Cards.

Yacht Club Games recently announced Showdown, which is a four-player brawler ala Smash Bros, but we now know that King of Cards, the third story-based expansion, will also release next year.

King of Cards will introduce four new worlds as well as 30 courses and the great news is, if you own Treasure Trove, both pieces of content will be absolutely free.

What’s more, Shovel Knight will be getting a physical release on Switch and PS4 on April 9th, in addition to three new Amiibo, King Knight, Plague Knight, and Spectre Knight.
