News: Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows

The already amazing Shovel Knight is getting even better, thanks to some free DLC. Yacht Club Games has announced Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows, an expansion on the original game that features Plague Knight (one of the bosses from the original game) as a playable character. This new character handles completely differently than his shovel-wielding counterpart, using bombs as his primary weapon, and he also has double jump and bomb jump, as well as numerous bomb customizations. Plague Knight can access some new areas and takes part in new story elements, as he interacts with NPC's and enemies differently than Shovel Knight. Players who have already mastered the game can try their hands at a slew of new challenge levels involving both Plague Knight and Shovel Knight.

The video below features the developers discussing the DLC for Wii U and 3DS, although the DLC is releasing for all platforms "soon".
