Our very own Daniel has put together an excellent feature on Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows, a batch of DLC for the original Shovel Knight game that does DLC in a somewhat unique way in today’s video game industry. He not only essentially reviews the DLC (we know, late right?), he explains why it happens to be arguably the best type of DLC out there and should set an example for other games to follow.

The is enticing to think about with the upcoming prequel, Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment, releasing later this year.
