Yacht Club Games Provides More Information For Shovel Knight Showdown And Says No Nintendo 3DS Version

IGN gave us the first look at the upcoming update to Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove which is a multiplayer mode called Shovel Knight Showdown. It will be a free update or alternatively you can purchase it as a standalone game. You can check out the mode out in action here. For now here’s the details courtesy of the official blog:

“Duel with up to 4 players and scramble after gems as your favorite heroic or villainous knight in Shovel Knight Showdown. All the classic Shovel Knight characters you know and love are playable, many for the first time ever! Gather your pals for endless multiplayer clashes, or take control of your favorite character and dig into Story Mode. Familiar controls, items, and mechanics return, making this a platform fighting game that anyone can jump into and try.

Shovel Knight Showdown features local only multiplayer, and arrives as a free update to all existing versions of Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove on consoles and PC. It will not be available on portable platforms (3DS and Vita). It will also be made available as a standalone game!”

  • Play as all the key heroes and villains from Shovel Knight, many for the first time ever! Master over 16 playable characters including Shovel Knight, Shield Knight, Black Knight, The Enchantress, and all of the Knights of the Order of No Quarter!
  • Compete in one-on-one duels, frantic 4 player free-for-alls, and cooperative team battles against AI opponents or your friends in modes like Gem Clash, Showdown, and more!
  • Battle through Story Mode, a multistage journey customized for each character! Your chosen hero will face a rival, defeat scores of opponents, relax with a minigame or two, and hopefully see their tale completed after an all-new final encounter!
  • Explore myriad stages inspired by famous characters and locales in Shovel Knight, as well as a plethora of all-new stages.
  • Prepare and perfect your moves in a full-featured practice mode.
  • Yacht Club Game’s beautifully authentic style bridges the gap between yesterday and today. Design, art, and audio hearken back to the days of 8-bit, but with a frenetic new coat of paint!
  • New songs compliment an award-winning soundtrack composed by Jake “Virt” Kaufman.
  • Balanced and intuitive gameplay is a warm welcome to newcomers, and an old embrace for experts.

  1. Welp, 3DS version since day one, and then the support finally stopped (I know, King of Cards is still allegedly coming to 3DS.)

    Fine, I’ll get it at Switch at some point, probably. My New 3DS XL’s R button’s getting iffy anyway. Why is it always the R button if something breaks?

    1. Usually it’s a particular shoulder button from being inside your pants pocket. At least that and Smash Bros was the reason my R buttons keep messing up.

      1. This is a late response, but if that were the case, then my L button should be messing up since I have my 3DS in my pocket with L button at the bottom cause it’s easier to check StreetPasses that way.

        Also, blowing in my 3DS didn’t fix the R button. If I press on it hard enough, I can get it to work, but only temporarily.

        1. The R button is a bug or glitch. It usually comes with some of the previous Firmware updates to the 3DS System, but eventually goes away. It shouldn’t happen with the past many firmware updates, like the current 11.9.

          But yeah, that was annoying back in the days.

      1. The 3DS version is getting all the single player content. While the Wii U version os getting all the content.
