Not content with simply being a guest in a lot of other fighting games, Shovel Knight it is finally about to become the protagonist with the last one DLC arriving.

titled Showdown, the new content puts 16 characters from Shovel Knight into a brawler that mixes Shovel Knight's gameplay with Super Smash Bros. or Rivals of Aether fighters. Each character will also have its own story mode with dialogues and rivals along the way.

Showdown is coming on all Shovel Knight console versions except for Playstation Vita and Nintendo 3DS, probably due to a mix of technical and sales issues. If you already own Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove you will receive the latest DLC, Showdown, for free. It will also be published in a standalone format.

The last piece of Shovel Knight's incredible DLC series, King of Cards, is still scheduled and should be published later this year.
