Free Shovel Knight expansion out September 17

To all platforms and regions

Yacht Club Games just announced Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows is coming to, “all existing platforms and regions on September 17, 2015.” The free expansion is a completely remixed story mode starring Plague Knight and featuring some new areas and bosses. There’s also a new challenge mode.

It’ll all go great with your Shovel Knight amiibo.

I wanted to do a joke about holding out for a Suge Knight expansion, but apparently he’s in prison for a recent, fatal hit-and-run. What the hell. I really do still need to play Shovel Knight, though.
