    Next year will be a fairly major milestone for the 2014 retro throwback indie Shovel Knight. Not only will it be receiving the recently announced Showdown party battle mode, but the third and final story expansion, King of Cards, will also be releasing on the same day. As a bonus, a physical edition will be sold as well, which includes the full Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove experience by packing in all the content for the game at a $39.99 price point. This physical release will only be for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in both North America and Europe. If that wasn't enough, the previously revealed Shovel Knight amiibo three pack, with Specter Knight, King Knight, and Plague Knight will also release the same day as the prior mentioned two expansions. King of Cards, the amiibo pack, and Showdown will all be out on April 9, 2019. The physical Shovel Knight pack currently has no release date.

    Hahaha, was just thinking they were milking it and I scroll down and someone else has already said it.

    Yacht Club has been making Shovel Knight expansions for nearly 5 years now. Let it go!

    Oh, really? Haha. Got themselves locked in there, then, I guess. Must get tiring working on the same game for this long..!

    Honestly, I would have bought SK Switch they hadn't seperated Treasure Trove or whatever.

    Should soon be finished ahah
    Well the Treasure Trove contain the complete game+dlc (like the others console), they just released one of the dlc on stand alone for those that already had the game on other plateforme. But if you buy the treasure trove one, you'll got the base got, that dlc and all others one.

    That release date is far longer than I expected. I would have hoped before the year ends :blink:

    While the continued support is nice, I really do wish Yacht Club Games would release a full-on sequel or follow-up to the original game, instead of trying to keep it alive via new game modes.

    Treasure Trove has all of the DLCs but to get everything you'd need the 4 Amiibos.

    The game is only a few hundred megabytes if I remember correctly so it should be fine.
    Fuck it then.

    Wow... seeing when the Amiibo were first announced, it seemed surreal that any date other than 2018 would be the release window for King of Cards... yet here we are. 2019. Damn.

    They probably will after this. They already said this is the last addition to Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove... This was all just stuff they promised in the Kickstarter.
