Shovel Knight

Shovel Knight is coming to retail for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Wii U, and 3DS on October 13 in North America and October 16 in Europe for an MSRP of $19.99, developer Yacht Club Games announced. Europe will also get a retail PC version.

The physical version will have a full instruction manual and include everything released for Shovel Knight so far, including the main campaign, the Plague of Shadows content update, and a full-featured Challenge Mode with over 50 levels to explore.

The boxed version, like the digital version, will also receive free future updates when they become available. This includes:

  • Specter Knight’s Campaign – A full campaign starring the shadowy scythe spinner!
  • King Knight’s Campaign – A crazy campaign with the gilded goob himself!
  • Battle Mode – Duel with up to 4 players as your favorite heroic or villainous knight! (Wii U/PS4/XB1/PC exclusive)
  • Body Swap Mode – Did you ever wish Shovel Knight was a lady, or Shield Knight was a dude? Well, now you’ll be able to change them all around, along with the rest of the cast!

Over at the Yacht Club Games blog, the developer has new screenshots of the Plague of Shadows update, which is currently “in the home stretch” and “coming very soon,” as well as a GIF of the later-due Battle Mode.
