So Shovel Knight was a huge Kickstarter success and was given pretty awesome reviews across the board. Know what would make a good game even better? A new free update to play as the Plague Knight boss. It’s release date is slated for Q2 2015. Here is the press kit that was provided with facts, screenshots, etc.
If you are going to PAX East this year, Yacht Club Games will have Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows playable in their booth. Also, they are teaming up with WeLoveFine to sell a pretty awesome Shovel Knight plush (with magnetic shovel). It is available for pre-order on their website and also will be sold at the Yacht Club Games booth at PAX East. I will definitely be grabbing one at the show!
