About a week ago, Motion Twin revealed that Shovel Knight with the King Scepter will be joining Dead Cells in the next free update. Since then, we’ve learned of many more characters coming into the game as a part of the indie crossover update. Playdigious is set to bring three major updates from Motion Twin to Dead Cells ($8.99) on mobile this month, but the other versions of the game will be adding quite a bit very soon. The indie crossover update will bring in Subject Zero from Katana Zero, the Ironclad from Slay the Spire, Jacket from Hotline Miami, Terraria, and finally the Commando from Risk of Rain. Watch some footage of Jacket from Hotline Miami in Dead Cells from the upcoming free update below:

Hopefully we get to know about this indie collaboration on mobile once Playdigious ships out the three major updates this month. Check out details for the Break the Bank update here, Enter the Panchaku update here, and Breaking Barriers update here. If you’re curious about Dead Cells on mobile, I did an interview with Playdigious covering that and Streets of Rage 4. Read it here. If you’re on iOS, you can buy Dead Cells on the App Store. Check it out on Google Play here for Android. If you’re unsure whether to grab it on mobile or Switch, read my comparison here. What do you think of Dead Cells and its current state on mobile and have you been playing it regularly?
