Yacht Club has updated its official Shovel Knight page with information regarding the future of the game.

First off, the website confirms a physical release for each version of the game (except for the PS Vita and PC outside of Europe). The retail version of the game will release in October 13th in North America and October 16th in Europe. Both retail and digital copies of the game contain the same content.


Secondly, there's more detail on the upcoming DLC for the game:

Of course, like the digital version, every boxed version will also receive FREE future updates as they become available:

  • Specter Knight’s Campaign – A full campaign starring the shadowy scythe spinner!
  • King Knight’s Campaign – A crazy campaign with the gilded goob himself!
  • Battle Mode – Duel with up to 4 players as your favorite heroic or villainous knight! (Wii U/PS4/XB1/PC exclusive)
  • Body Swap Mode –  Did you ever wish Shovel Knight was a lady, or Shield Knight was a dude? Well, now you’ll be able to change them all around, along with the rest of the cast!

Lastly, Yacht Club teases that the upcoming DLC will launch "very soon", and notes plans to release some kind of Nintendo exclusive content, similar to the Kratos DLC for PlayStation systems and Battletoads DLC for the Xbox One.

I'm liking this! I wonder what the Nintendo exclusive dlc is...

The Vita isn`t getting a physical version? Well, that`s weird. Usually the Vita is pretty good on getting physical copies of games, even the small ones. Maybe they`ll work out something later. But as for the content, I`ll be looking forward to it : D

Specter Knight's Campaign – A full campaign starring the shadowy scythe spinner! King Knight's Campaign – A crazy campaign with the gilded goob himself! Battle Mode – Duel with up to 4 players as your favorite heroic or villainous knight! (Wii U/PS4/XB1/PC exclusive) Body Swap Mode – Did you ever wish Shovel Knight was a lady, or Shield Knight was a dude? Well, now you'll be able to change them all around, along with the rest of the cast! Until these are out, this game isn't finished to me. And judging by how the first DLC isn't even out yet after a year, I'll just assume that I won't be playing Shovel Knight for at least for more years when the complete package is out.
