Nintendo has shared a video interview with Yacht Club Games, who run through the reasons why you should be excited for Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows.
Sean Velasco and Nick Wozniak talk about the free downloadable content, which introduces Plague Knight as a playable character. With a double-jump and a charged bomb jump to leap across the screen, he has entirely different mobility to Shovel Knight.
Customisation options will see you combine different fuses, cases and powders for crazy results, as you explore an entirely different perspective playing as a villain in Shovel Knight’s expanded world. That opens up the chance for new narrative between new and existing characters, with the DLC rounded off with a new Challenge Mode.
Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows will shortly see release across Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.
