New Shovel Knight DLC on its Way; Playable Bosses, Gender Swap and More!

Shovel Knight Wii U and 3DS

It’s fair to say that Shovel Knight has been an absolute success on the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS eShop. The combination of rewarding gameplay and ecstatic fans resulted in the game nabbing plenty of sales—and it’s only been available to download for a day.

Well now, it turns out that there’s another surprise on its way—don’t worry it’s free. As a result of successful Kickstarter funding and the stellar sales of Shovel Knight, it was revealed that the game would be receiving complimentary DLC, courtesy of Yacht Club Games.

These free updates will add to the already extensive amount of content by adding 3 new campaigns (with playable bosses), a challenge mode, a gender swap mode and more!

Take a look at the full list:

  • Battle mode featuring the Order of No Quarter
  • Challenge Mode
  • Gender Swap Mode
  • Three Playable Boss Campaigns: King Knight, Plague Knight, and Specter Knight

Not much information has been revealed about these updates yet (aside from what they are), and the release date of these updates is still unknown, but while you’re waiting, why not check out our Shovel Knight Review?
