Shovel Knight and four of his deadliest foes have joined free-to-play fighting game Brawlhalla starting today, kicking off Brawlhalla’s first-ever crossover event. The knights appear as epic crossover skins for five of the Legends already mixing it up in Valhalla, and feature new lock-in animations, new sounds, and custom visual effects for signature attacks. Plague Knight, for example, replaces Caspian’s bombs with his potions.
The new additions include Shovel Knight, who appears as a crossover skin for Gnash; Plague Knight, who stands in for Caspian; King Knight, a skin for Sir Roland; Black Knight, for Orion; and Specter Knight, for Nix. A new, Shovel Knight-themed map joins the mix as well, available in Free for All, 1v1, and 2v2 matches.
“We’ve had an amazing time working with the team at Blue Mammoth Games and Ubisoft to bring Shovel Knight to Brawlhalla,” said a Yacht Club Games representative. “It’s so cool seeing so many knights from the Shovel Knight series battle it out in Brawlhalla’s style, and we hope fans enjoy playing as their favorite knight!”
Shovel Knight isn’t the only big addition coming to Brawlhalla. The game’s weekly rotation of free characters is growing from six to eight, giving players more options for getting their brawl on. Also, players can now grab the Brawlhalla Autumn Championship 2018 Pack and show their support for esports with the Autumn Shard 2018 Avatar, the Autumn Harvest Scythe Skin, and 300 Mammoth Coins. And on November 6, Rayman joins the roster of Legends, giving players the chance to earn him for use in battle.
