Shovel Knight: Plague Of Shadows Is Now Available As A Free Download

The Shovel Knight DLC – Plague Of Shadows – is now available to download. It’s free for all owners of Shovel Knight and can be downloaded via the Nintendo eShop for the 3DS, or as an automatic update for the Wii U. Yacht Club Games has put together a guide on how to update the game – as the in-game update option on the 3DS isn’t possible due to the size of the download. You can check out instructions for each console here.


  1. Huh, I hope it’s available tonight when I get home for my 3DS. 》.《

    Really want this lil beast.

  2. Will this DLC still be free (and available) with the physical copies of Shovel Knight when it releases?

    1. I’d like to think so- the extra $5 for the physical version compared to digital is probably for the cost of manufacturing, not PoS.

  3. The twitter account is nintendo UK so the free dlc might be UK only. Could you confirm if this is UK exclusive or if the dlc is also free in NA

  4. I’m pretty sure its up and running on eShop. Just search the game Shovel Knight and it will have a tab to download a nice sized little mb or two. I haven’t beat it yet so im not sure how to access the PoS content yet.
