Needing other people is what downgrades Shovel Knight Showdown below its legendary kin. Despite good intentions, this smattering of modes and options never quite come together as something worth seeking out on its own. It’s a solid choice for local multiplayer gatherings, but there’s not enough shine on this armor to take things beyond a passing novelty. That’s probably fine. Considering its origins, it’s a wonder that Shovel Knight Showdown got as much love as it did.

Yacht Club Games has added two new additions to the PC version of their popular Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove. Shovel Knight: Showdown is an enjoyable 2D arena-battler that provides a fun local multiplayer experience, but lacks a true online multiplayer feature that would catapult this title into an exceptional 4-person party-battle. Shovel Knight: King of Cards diverts little from the original Shovel Knights modus operandi.

If you have friends to play it with and really love Shovel Knight, you probably will eke some entertainment out of Shovel Knight Showdown. There’s plenty of content to unlock, too. It really needed to have online multiplayer to make an impact though, as it’s only really enjoyable when played with others. Still, the fact that it’s free if you have the Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove means it’s worth giving a go, but don’t expect it to keep you going back for more.If you have friends to play it with and really love Shovel Knight, you probably will eke some entertainment out of Shovel Knight Showdown.
