The long-awaited final Shovel Knight updates are dated for December, Yacht Club Games has announced.

The Treasure Trove is almost full. After five years of updates, Shovel Knight will finally be complete when King of Cards and Showdown are released on December 10, 2019.

Shovel Knight was first revealed way back in 2013, raising $311,502 in a successful Kickstarter campaign. The game debuted on PC, Wii U and 3DS, before coming to Fire TV, Mac, PS3, PS4, PS Vita, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One. Phew. To date, the game has sold well over two million copies.

King of Cards is billed as the game’s largest ever update and features more content than any of the previous expansions. On the game’s official website, Yacht Club says, “It’s the biggest game we’ve ever made, and we can’t wait for everyone to finally, finally play it. We’ve used everything we’ve learned in the past to make this game shine.”

King of Cards will be available as a free update for owners of Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove and as a separate paid full game download.

Showdown is a multiplayer mode that brings together all of Shovel Knight’s best characters to face-off in an explosive platform fighting game. It will be available as a free update on all platforms except for the Nintendo 3DS and PS Vita.

The next wave of amiibos will also be released on the same date, including a triple pack containing Plague Knight, King Knight and Specter Knight, plus a special gold edition of Shovel Knight
