We recently brought you news on how Shovel Knight’s expansion Plague of Shadows protagonist, Plague Knight, differs from Shovel Knight, but there still was no official word from developer Yacht Club Games on the game’s release date – however, that has changed.

Yacht Club Games took to their official website to announce that Plague of Shadows will release on September 17th. The expansion is free, meaning you only need the base game to play it, and it will release on Vita on the same date as consoles.

If you haven’t checked out the expansion’s trailer, check it out below!

If you’re excited for the expansion, you can check out its manual early, courtesy of the developer. And, as always, make sure to keep it tuned to The Vita Lounge for all things Vita.
