If for some reason (forgetfulness, inexplicable dislike of excellent retro platformers) you’ve still yet to snag Shovel Knight’s Treasure Trove edition, developer Yacht Club Games has warned that it’s getting a significant price bump tomorrow, 10th December.

At present, Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove costs around £18.99/$24.99 USD (with prices fluctuating depending on platform), which already offers some top-tier value. Currently, it includes the original Shovel Knight game, Shovel of Hope, plus its two following episodes Plague of Shadows and Spectre of Torment – both of which introduce new protagonists with their own distinct abilities, radically altering the core platforming experience.

As of 10th December, however, Yacht Club Games’ long-awaited final two Shovel Knight instalments – King of Cards and Showdown – will be added to the Treasure Trove bundle. The former brings a new protagonist, in the guise of the titular royal, plus the card game Jaustus. Showdown, meanwhile, is a new four-player brawler, making for a bit of a series departure.
