During Anime Expo, Inti Creates announced what would be coming in the next update for Blaster Master Zero, the remake of the NES classic. The patch is throwing in two new playable indie darlings: Shantae and Shovel Knight. You’ll be able to download both characters at no charge for a limited amount of time. Shantae will be up for grabs from July 6 to July 19, while Shovel Knight will be available from August 3 to August 16. After the free period has ended, both of them will become paid downloadable content.
If you miss the free deadline, Shantae and Shovel Knight will still be available, but for the price of $1.99 each. You can check out the trailer for the 1.3 update right here; you can watch Shovel Knight and Shantae kicking some butt and taking names:
