Shovel Knight may very well be one of my all time favorite games. I liked it so much in fact that i played through “Plague of Shadows”in one go in order to get a review up for the team i was working with at the time. With that said i think it’s pretty obvious that i’ve been super excited for any and all updates as to what Yacht Club Games had in store. And holy shit did they deliver.
If there was one complaint to be had with “Plague of Shadows” it was that the levels felt way to similar to each other. While that did make playing as the vastly different Plague Knight easier as you were more learning how to get through the same environments in new ways, if it wasn’t for just how fun it was to play as the new character the game would have been rather samey. From the look of this trailer that doesn’t seem to be the case. Some of the levels look unrecognizable, and several of the bosses look like they’ve been totally reworked too. All of that plus Specter Knight looks to have his own vastly different skill set to set him apart from his playable peers. I can’t lie, that makes me really excited to get mu hands on this as soon as possible. Really the only disappointing thing about this and the rest of the planed DLC is that it means we have a good while to wait until we see what else Yacht Club has up their sleeves.
