Shovel Knight's fourth and final DLC is multiplayer brawler Showdown


Developer Yacht Club Games has revealed Showdown, the fourth and final DLC for its excellent 8-bit-inspired platformer Shovel Knight – and it’s a 2D multiplayer brawler.

Showdown was originally mentioned back in 2013, as part of Shovel Knight’s Kickstarter campaign. At the time, Yacht Club’s fourth and final stretch goal was simply described as a “4 Player Battle Mode”, but now we know more.

As has consistently been the case with Yacht Club’s Shovel Knight post-base-game offerings, Showdown is gearing up to be considerably more involved than its early description might suggest. Showdown, it turns out, is a fully feature local multiplayer brawler, pitting four players against each other across a range of stages, and a variety of modes.
