Story

Spoiler warning!
This article contains plot details about an event that occurs later in the game.
When Specter Knight parted for his final confrontation with the Enchantress in Specter of Torment, the various residents of the Tower of Fate who he made allies with decided to aid in his quest. They hastily modified the Magic Mirror Specter Knight had previously used to teleport across the Valley while recruiting members for the Order of No Quarter, hoping to capture the Enchantress within it. However the rushed and incomplete job yielded unforeseen consequences...

Modes

There are three concepts for battle mode mentioned on the Kickstarter:

  • Cash Collecting - where you fight for treasure that appears in the level. Knock your buddy to make gems fall out and collect them!
  • Racing - where all players would have to make their way to the end of a stage
  • Last Man Standing - where the only goal is to slash mercilessly to the bitter end!

In Shovel Knight Showdown, these modes have been dubbed Gem Clash and Showdown. According to Shovel Knight's 5th anniversary stream, Showdown refers to Last Man Standing[4].
