Shovel Knight: King of the Cards

An action platformer that follows King Knight's journey to join the Order of no Quarter.


Shovel Knight: King of Cards is an additional campaign developed by Yacht Club Games, that will conclude the Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove series. Players take on the role of Knight King (previously a boss character) as he journeys to ascend to the throne.


Staying true to the traditional Shovel Knight theme, King of Cards is predominantly an 8-bit 2D side-scrolling platformer. However, unlike previous campaigns, it will also feature a brand new in-game card battling system.


Shovel Knight: King of Cards will contain the following features:

  • 4 new worlds.
  • Over 30 new courses.
  • New attacks and abilities - such as "Bash attack" and "Spinning strike".
  • New weapons and armor.
  • Compete in the new card battling mode.
  • New Game+ mode.
  • Additional "Feats" and "Challenge Stages".
  • New bosses to challenge.


Yacht Club Games have confirmed that long-standing Shovel Knight composer Jake Kaufman will be working on the King of Cards soundtrack.
