Looks great from where I’m sitting. Not sure what to make of the apparent tile puzzle gameplay though.

As I said in the other thread, I generally don't buy games twice, but I might have to supplement my Wii U copy of this with a Switch copy just for collector's sake. (Though I doubt I'll unseal it.)

Is this the last expansion/content that Shovel Knight is getting? I played the vanilla version on Wii U when it came out years ago but nothing that came afterwards.

Not giving the date in December has been slightly worried

I'm gonna be playing the Wii U version and they took an age to get the EU Wii U version updated for the last DLC

December is so far away, I don't really mind the 8 months delay but it would have been nice to get it separately from the battle mode (which was causing development issues)

That looks great. I've been doubtful about this one because King Knight is the knight I think is least interesting, but it looks like I may have been wrong!

Wow, looks good. I bought Shovel Knight for the Wii U back in 2014. Never thought I would still be playing it and the Wii U all the way into 2019 and 2020.

looks great. it's really crazy how far this simple kickstarter project has come, and how much they've supported this game.

Oh my God that's so charming... Love it!

Music's quite different compared to the previous Shovel Knight games though. Is Jay Kaufman returning as a composer? If so it's nice to hear him stretch his legs with a different sound. He's a master of chiptunes though, so I'm in for more of that as well =D .

Full Treasure Trove physically, nice. Never would have thought it would take this long to complete, lol.

Per Q&A:

Shovel Knight Showdown will NOT have online play.

King of Cards will still be released on Wii U, 3DS, PS3, and Vita even though they're older consoles.

So if I buy Treasure Trove today, I'll get King of Cards/Showdown when they release for free?

Man Shovel Knight just keeps on giving.

Is this the final, complete edition? I only got shovel knight at launch, and haven’t plowed/got confused by all the other releases.

Treasure Trove is just so much value.. amazing games, and this looks stellar as well.

Rarely do kickstarters deliver as much on promises as Shovel Knight has.

Also, for Showdown, the Versus mode, a new character has been announced: Mona, the Alchemist most prominently featured in Plague Knight's campaign.

The trailer also had teases for these characters being playable:
All of the Travelling Wanderers - Mr. Hat, Phantom Striker, Reize, The Baz and Liquid Samurai enemies.

Soon isn't soon enough! I need it now!

Man, I can't wait to get my hands on this. Loved the original, Plague Knight, and Specter Knight campaigns. Might have to re-play through them again after beating King Knight's campaign.

Per Q&A:

The physical version of Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove will NOT include an instruction manual. (There previously was a manual with the first physical version.)

If the past couple of expansions were any indication, I can't wait to genuinely care about King Knight's wellbeing.
