With King of Cards and Shovel Knight Showdown on the horizon, only two expansions remain for Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove. Thankfully, the wait will soon be over as everything—the physical versions, the expansions themselves, and the new amiibo—is finally scheduled for launch in December. If you’re itching to see more of the two expansions in action, then Yacht Club Games Presents has a treat for you! The online presentation premiered two trailers for Treasure Trove‘s upcoming DLC, and you can see them in action below.

The final stretch

Hot off the heels of Gamescom, the new trailer for Shovel Knight: King of Cards shows off more of the vigorous King Knight as he japes, scrapes, and pirouettes in his cape. With a realm inspired by Super Mario World and the new Joustus card game to keep players busy, King of Cards might be the biggest Shovel Knight expansion yet!

Next up is the ultimate showdown! In Shovel Knight Showdown, take control of 16 different fighters throughout a variety of different modes in singleplayer or local multiplayer, including Story Mode, Gem Clash, and more. On top of that, Plague of Shadows‘ Mona is also revealed as a new playable character! Yacht Club also teased a few more characters during their presentation, so expect full reveals of these new additions to the roster towards December.

Of course, these expansions will be available as free add-ons for Treasure Trove owners across all platforms; unfortunately, Showdown will not launch for the Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita. That said, you can also buy these as separate games if you so choose!

In any case, what do you think of the new Shovel Knight trailers? Are you looking forward to King of Cards? Which fighter are you looking to make your main in Shovel Knight Showdown? Let us know in the comments below!
