IGN has shared a few new videos containing more gameplay from Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment. We’ve rounded them up below.


GameXplain has uploaded an interview with Shovel Knight’s devs Yacht Club Games. They talk about the new campaign, Specter of Torment, and their impressions on Switch. Watch the video below:

The original Shovel Knight features amiibo support in a variety of ways. Yacht Club Games’ special figure unlocks co-op, exclusive challenge stages, and more.

For the newest addition to Shovel Knight – that being Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment of course – Yacht Club Games is once again supporting amiibo. Nintendo’s site mentions how you’ll be able to “summon a spirit of Shovelry to keep you company during your quest”.

That note is specifically stated for Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment on Switch. However, the same functionality will likely be included in the Wii U and 3DS versions as well. Hopefully Yacht Club Games provides additional information before launch in March.

Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment will be out on Switch before any other platform. Yacht Club Games recently said that it would be coming out during the system’s launch window, but didn’t provide any specific time frame.

On Nintendo’s website, Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment is listed for March. It’s still not a concrete date, but that’s more definitive than launch window.

Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment is a little over a month away from launch, meaning footage continues to appear. Find a few more minutes of gameplay below.

Thanks to Jake for the tip.

Even more footage from Shovel Knight has arrived, this time showing the co-op feature in the main game. See it in action below.

Another round of footage is online for Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment on Switch. Check out gameplay from the Stranded Ship below.

First footage is in showing Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment. Watch 12 minutes of gameplay in the video below.

We have another round of news about Shovel Knight. First, Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove and Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment will launch first on Switch during the system’s launch window for $24.99 and $9.99 respectively. That would indicate today’s earlier news of an April launch applies to Wii U and 3DS instead of Switch.

Specter of Torment and Shovel Knight co-op will be playable on Switch for the first time at PAX South later this month.

Yacht Club Games is also announcing today that Shovel Knight Sound Test Mode is on the way. It’ll come to all versions of the game as a free update.
