Yacht Club Games has released a new trailer for Shovel Knight: King of Cards, the final campaign in the Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove saga.

It will see you play as the gilded goon, King Knight, traveling through four new worlds packed with more than 30 all-new action-packed courses that will reveal how he ascended the throne and joined the Order of No Quarter.

King Knight can tackle enemies and obstacles head-on with his signature bash attack and finish them off with a dazzling spinning strike, with the developer summarising that his playstyle is all about bashing, bouncing, and bounding.

“King of Cards marks our grandest adventure yet, and we hope the trailer whets your appetite for the banquet of adventure which awaits!” the developer explains.

“It has more levels, mechanics, secrets, and content than any Shovel Knight game to come before it. It’s a spectacle, crammed to the coffers with ideas- it’s the biggest game we’ve ever made, and we can’t wait for everyone to finally, finally play it.

“We’ve used everything we’ve learned in the past to make this game shine. We hope that you’ll find it both a delightful return and a fitting sendoff to Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove.”

Shovel Knight: King of Cards will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in December.
