Shovel Knight's final two expansions King of Cards and Showdown have been delayed

Posted by , | Views: 2,886

Yacht Club Games originally announced the final two expansions would be released in April but they've decided to delay them.

For those not up to speed, King of Cards is the next and final expansion for Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove. You take on the role of King Knight, through 4 new worlds and more than 30 all new courses. Then we have Showdown, which is a mix of multiplayer madness for up to 4 players as well as giving another new story mode. Both are going to be free updates when released!

Speaking about the delay, they said this on Kickstarter:

We estimate several months– at most! This is not a major delay so  much as more space to bring everything together for a polished and  complete finale. As always, these last steps require coordination with  many teams beyond our own.

We realize the delay is disappointing. To communicate better with  everyone moving forward, we will not be announcing a new date until we  know one for sure, from all partners involved. All builds shipped out,  updates ready to launch, for everybody and everyone. We will announce it  for good once it is 100% all across the board!

The good news, is that a Linux release for both is still absolutely confirmed and mentioned in the more detailed post they linked to on their website.

Being a free update I would guess that the price of the Treasure Cove won't go up again, right?

I'm still trying to decide if I buy the game or not because it is more like a pack of games and I am only interested in Shovel Knight (and not interested enough to pay 20 bucks).

It would be nice to be able to buy only what I want.

Other than that multiplayer games are always welcome and there's nothing wrong with delaying a game to make it better. Good for them for taking the right decision.

@saturnoyo If you are not aware: the other games in the Treasure Trove aren't really other games than shovel knight (besides the multiplayer one announced), but "addons" or alternative characters (with some level changes and additional content). If you like shovel knight you will also like the addons.

Shovel Knight and Alwa's Awakening are both fantastic NES-style platformers.
Had lots of fun with them.
