      1. Specter Knight and King Knight, from what I read it’ll be free like the last one released. At the moment though I have no idea what systems the content is heading to. I would imagine with the overwhelming support on 3ds, that we’re safe on that ground.

          1. I’m still playing through Shovel Knight’s story. I find that it’s one of those game’s I really tend to enjoy playing through slow and seeing everything. It’s a great game, I’m stoked for Plague Knight’s story!

            1. When you finish the main story mode I’d recommend trying to go back through it with the SK amiibo. I think it’s the best amiibo functionality used so far, Yacht Club really nailed it with their amiibo

            2. Agreed! I can’t praise Shovel Knight enough, especially for retro gamers like myself. (Aka Older, grew up on the Commador, Atari, and the NES was like getting a truly next gen system)

    1. I mean, it was confirmed when the Kickstarter ended 3 years ago, so it’s not a surprise lol, but that new Spectre Knight gameplay looks pretty dope.

      1. The Specter Knight Story is fantastic and has a great ending. Not as magical as SK, but fulfilling.

      1. I’m right there with yah! It’s awesome to get extra content for free!!!

        :D.

        It would have been cool to have some four player co op function or something. But honestly, I think I say that about every game…
