Titled Shovel Knight: King of Cards, players will be able to set out on a quest to bring King Knight to the throne and join the Order of No Quarter. The adventure takes place over four worlds and over thirty new levels. To attain the crown, King Knight needs to make the "Three Kings" who rule the land bend the knee.
King Knight's gameplay offers a new twist on Shovel Knight's platforming action. This expansion focuses on bashing and crushing - players need to make clever use of King Knight's dashing bash attack and radiant war hammer to beat foes into submission. On top of that, the expansion adds many new weapons, armor, abilities, and followers to help King Knight live up to his ambitions!
Players who find the expansion too easy can even hone their skills with Feats and Challenge stages. Each of these feature rematches with empowered bosses, hyped up platforming hazards, and more. Players can delve through all the secrets of the Shovel Knight world with a New Game+ mode, too.
Players who become bored or need a break from platforming action can hit the cards! King of Cards includes a strategic card game within the expansion that offers unique gameplay opportunities and rewards.
Shovel Knight: King of Cards releases on a staggering number of devices that currently include: Wii U, 3DS, Switch, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Vita, Xbox One, PC, Mac, Linux, and Amazon FireTV. Players will be able to get their hands on it when it releases early in 2018.
