USGamer caught up with Nick Wozniak from Yacht Club Games and managed to obtain some additional details about Specter of Tournament, the next expansion for Shovel Knight. We’ve rounded up the important tidbits below, though the full article is located here.

– Free to everyone who owns Shovel Knight
– being pushed as “standalone” so casual observers understand that it’s more than a simple reskin with a new character
– May also make Specter of Torment a true standalone release, though they wouldn’t elaborate on what form they would take
– Set before the original Shovel Knight
– Follows Specter Knight as he recruits the Order of No Quarter
– Specter Knight can wall climb and dash slash
– Yacht Club is remixing his levels
– New screens as well as new art
– You might recognize “one or two screens if you really know the old game,” but otherwise it will very different
– Players can choose any level they want
– All boss battles have been redone
– Harder/easier stages like that of Mega Man

The developers behind Minecraft: Wii U Edition teamed up with Nintendo earlier this year to bring special Mario content to the game. Fans have since found unused content from images included in the files, showing different skins that were originally going to be used.

Hooktail (from Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door) was as least considered as the Ender Dragon instead of Gobblegut. Also shown is Midbus as the Pigs and Yoshi as the Horses. Lastly, we’re able to see the Ender Chest with a Mr. I-themed design instead of the Shy Guy-themed design it has in the final release.

It’s worth noting that the screenshot with the Yoshi horses was used in the “Horses” section of the “How to Play” menu, before the patch which added the Battle Mini Game.
