Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows Release Date Coming “Very, Very Soon”

If you were one of the many folks who hopped aboard the Shovel Knight hype train back in 2014, you likely enjoyed that ride all the way to the final stop—and were excited to hear about the expansion coming as a free update later down the line. For a while now, we’ve been waiting for Yacht Club Games to make good on their Kickstarter promise of a new playable campaign that puts a bit of a twist on the original title.

The Plague of Shadows expansion was playable at PAX East this year, but thus far there hasn’t been any information about when we’ll actually see the game released. The good news now is that we won’t have to wait a whole lot longer!

A notice was sent out to backers of the original Shovel Knight Kickstarter that confirmed the Plague of Shadows development was completed on August 5th. That means it’s currently making its way through the submission processes for each relevant platform, and in turn we should receive a release date announcement “very, very soon.”
