Yacht Club Games has finally announced that the final DLC for Shovel Knight is in the works and it will be the multiplayer brawler promised during the Kickstarter.
Shovel Knight Showdown, as it’s called, will be a four vs. four local multiplayer brawler that’ll pit the game’s cast of colorful characters against one another in a battle for supremacy. Players will be battling it out across a series of different modes and stages from the main game.
In total there’ll be 16 playable characters featuring both good and evil characters from the game. As you’d expect, there’s Shovel Knight, but joining him is Shield Knight, Black Knight, The Enchantress, and more.
As for those modes, the game will include team co-op vs AI, four vs four free for alls, and things like Gem Clash and Showdown.
Shovel Knight Showdown will cost $9.99, or free for those who have Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove. The DLC will also land on all platforms other than 3DS and PS Vita.
This news comes soon after the announcement of Shovel Knight being next in line to be added to Rivals of Aether, which is kind of fitting, really.
