If you watched today’s Nindies Summer Showcase, you might have noticed a freshly dug hole where Shovel Knight should have been. While the franchise was sadly absent, Yacht Club Games did give IGN the honor of announcing Shovel Knight Showdown – an upcoming, multiplayer title coming to the Switch and Wii U in the near future.

While Showdown looks amazing, we were saddened to see that no information on the upcoming expansion Shovel Knight: King of Cards or the Treasure Trove amiibo 3-pack were to be found. To quell any questions from fans, Yacht Club Games did tweet out an update about the two, confirming a release date is incoming later this week!

Luckily we won’t have to wait too long for an actual release date, rather than a placeholder. We’ll continue to monitor Yacht Club’s social media throughout the week and report on any further announcements.
