Shovel Knight:Treasure Trove and Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment will launch first in Nintendo Switch’s launch window for $24.99 and $9.99 respectively!
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 Tracker and continue to receive all planned game updates!


He's been playing video games his entire life, and has gotten progressively worse at them as he's gotten older and more decrepit. He's been running this place (into the ground) since 2013. He's old. Keeps writing about Nintendo despite mountains of evidence proving he should never write anything. Very old. Lifelong Nintendo fan, doesn't care what you think about that. Did I mention how old he is? Because he's very old.
