    Jeez, that's 2 years after specter of torment came out. I know making games isn't fast but jeez, it's an expansion which will heavily reuse assets (with 2 expansions have been made already) and a card game, it really shouldn't take 2 years :/

    It clearly isn't a priority for them, as they're doing it only to fill the stretch goal for the kickstarter. But I'm glad they are keeping the promise they made back then.

    Somewhere i can never find.
    wait playstation 4 and switch only for the final dlc, what about the wii u version. I cant afford 40$ just so I can play the kings knight story.

    Nah, it's coming to Wii U, no worries. Just the new physical copy with Treasure Trove branding is PS4/Switch only. (And the old Wii U physical gets the new content too)

    Very good, last time I was thinking to buy it digital on the switch. But this is a better option.

    Ha, screw the PS4 in particular apparently. :P

    Not complaining or anything, I just think it's pretty funny how they delayed King of Cards just for the sake of Switch being able to get their physical release at the same time as everybody else (so they could have Showdown included in the physical release), then in the end, PS4 owners end up having their physical copy delayed, but everyone else gets the game anyway.

    Since it is practically 4 games in one, the $40 price tag is more than justified. Shame the same cannot be said about a certain $60 incomplete game dropping at the end of this week.
