The newest addition to the Shovel Knight series will be arriving to Nintendo Switch before every other platform
Shovel Knight:Treasure Trove and Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment will launch of Nintendo Switch “first” during the Switch’s launch windows. Coming directly from the Yacht Club Games website. Just like the original launch of Shovel Knight, the content will be coming to a Nintendo platform first again, though whether any exclusive content will be coming to Switch version, not yet at least. Another neat feature is that they added a Sound Test Mode! Sweet!
Get ready for Shovel Knight Co-op using Joy-Cons, Specter of Torment, Body Swap Mode, new challenge stages, new feats, and more on your new Nintendo Switch!! The other consoles and standalone versions will follow suit in April (dates to be confirmed once submitted and approved by platform holders).
As one final bit of news to all you music lovers, we’ve decided to add a Shovel Knight Sound Test Mode where you can listen to all the tracks from every campaign. It’ll be a free update to all versions of the game.
Just as a reminder, if you own Shovel Knight already, you will automatically own Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove and continue to receive all planned game updates!
