Everything Shovel Knight delayed until later in 2019

by Daniel VuckovicFebruary 20, 2019

The two brand games, Shovel Knight King of Cards and Showdown have been delayed and with it caused everything else Shovel Knight to be delayed until later this year. Yacht Club Games says everything has been delayed “one last time” to get everything right.

Not only where these new games delayed, but because of their inclusion in the physical release of Treasure Trove that gets delayed too. The three pack of Shovel Knight amiibo, also suffers the delayed fate. So how far has it all been delayed?

We have only a bit more work left to do on completing King of Cards and Showdown. The two, brand new, complete games coming to Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove. It remains our focus to bring these to the highest level of quality just as we have with previous Shovel Knight games. It’s also our priority to have these games on the disc/card for the upcoming physical version. We need a little more time to make this happen, and so we are pushing the release back one last time. We’re still aiming to release everything at once, so this this delay applies to everything: physical editions, digital update, and Treasure Trove amiibo 3-pack.

How far back?

We estimate several months– at most! This is not a major delay so much as more space to bring everything together for a polished and complete finale. As always, these last steps require coordination with many teams beyond our own.
We realize the delay is disappointing. To communicate better with everyone moving forward, we will not be announcing a new date until we know one for sure, from all partners involved. All builds shipped out, updates ready to launch, for everybody and everyone. We will announce it for good once it is 100% all across the board!

Are the amiibo delayed too?

Yes. We’re eager for the newest knights join everyone’s collection! However, the update which brings support for these new amiibo are connected to the release of the King of Cards. As described above, we need more time before it is ready for release and so we’ll announce when we know for sure.
