    It sounds like they are going all out for the other playable characters. Took this from their latest update on kickstarter:

    "The pedal is to the proverbial metal on Plague Knight! We are working full time on update content (Plague Knight, Body Swap Mode, and Battle Mode!), and it’s shaping up to be amazing. The Plague Knight campaign will be the first content released, and it’s feeling like a whole new adventure already! A new relic system! New characters and bosses! Remixed content! On that subject, we’re going to share a little detail. Mona, who runs the potion minigame in the village, will have a vastly expanded role.... "

    Mhmm, still waiting for the DLC. I also forgot this came out on PS4. How's the Kratos easter egg? Does it change the game at all or is it just an homage?

    I haven't gotten there yet, I only played up until Plague Knight and Treasure Knight because the thing about having kids is when they see you playing an awesome new game they want to play it too.

    Oh man, the idea of having kids play this game as if it's one of the first they play is really endearing. Like having Super Mario Bros./Duck Hunt combo cart for me, but instead they're playing Shovel Knight. That just seems really cool to me.

    I'm hoping this means he'll be in Smash Bros., though that's probably a stretch.

  • EnlongEnlong Registered User regular
    Yeah. I doubt that.

    Looks like this is the Nintendo-specific content that isn't what we would expect. I wonder what content it unlocks.

    Obviously it lets you play as Shovel knight but only in Classic Shovel knight mode

    It must've been taken down. It was a Shovel Knight amiibo.

    Putting him in Smash Bros never made much sense to me, though I'd hardly fight the issue.

    Realizing this is possibly the form of the exclusive Nintendo content makes much more sense.

    ...And then I'm forced to deal with the reality of how stupid that move would be. You need the Shovel Knight amiibo to unlock the bonus stuff? Content you'll never see because you'll never be able to find one. The amiibo situation has improved only so much as it's slightly easier to find these things at launch. Miss or skip that window, and it's the same old story.

    I doubt they'd paywall it . My guess is there's an alt unlock like with Mario maker.

    we'll have to see how it's being released but at the moment it's a single amiibo being released on Thanksgiving. It's literally their Black Friday amiibo no way it's gonna be short stocked.

    He's not.

    The Amiibo unlocks content in the Nintendo versions of Shovel Knight.

    Well, we haven't heard one way or another if he's in Smash. Though the odds are probably low on that one.

    Not really? I mean, Shovel Knight while a great imitation of more classic properties and a wonderful game in its own right, has had one multi-platform release. That doesn't scream to me "Smash Bros", as much as I'd personally like the inclusion I don't feel slighted by not having it. I'd rather see more classic overlooked characters added.

    I'd say it's more likely to see Mario, Link, or Samus in Shovel Knight's eventual battle mode.

    AOL Link behaves a lot like Shovel knight. Easy pallet swap?
