Shovel Knight: King of Cards
Shovel Knight: King of Cards is the proverbial cherry on top of a massive sundae that I’ve enjoyed thoroughly, and I know I’ll look forward to revisiting it in its entirety in the future as well.
Shovel Knight: King of Cards continues the series' route in bringing more and more exquisite expansions to the original game. A crowning achievement of the Shovel Knight series, this expansion adds some very original new levels, a welcome new character with new mechanics and the series' trademark art style and sound environment. King of Cards is the expansion that Shovel Knight could want the most and it's recommended without any reservation to all Nintendo Switch owners.

Yacht Club Games proves that their final Shovel Knight expansion, King of Cards, is no fool's gold by making their best game to date.
Like its brethren before it, Shovel Knight: King of Cards features some of the best platforming game design ever seen in a video game.
It’s incredible that Yacht Club Games has finally reached the finish line on their most popular title, but it was a worthy sendoff for the first saga of a franchise that revolutionized the indie video game space.
This is likely the last we’ll see of the ‘core’ Shovel Knight series for some time, and King of Cards acts as a worthy swansong for a now-legendary platformer. Bravo.
For its last platformer chapter, the Shovel Knight series let us play through the Monty Python King Knight, a wanabee king travelling the world to defeat its potential adversaries. Through this lovely pixel art adventure, the players will alos discover the Joustus, a card game within the game, for ever more fun in every tavern of this grotesque world.

King of Cards is another excellent addition to the Shovel Knight saga - an exciting and grand finale for the series.
King of Cards is the better Shovel Knight campaing yet, and a great goodbye to this wonderful series of games. We really look forward to Yacht Club Games' next work, be it Shovel Knight 2 or else.

Shovel Knight: King of Cards is a master-class in platforming, design, pixel art, and much, much more. Offering a good amount of new content, as well as the all-new card mini-game, Joustus, you have an overall package that is hard not to recommend, even if good portions of this feel wholly the same as the original Shovel Knight and its successive releases.
