Shovel Knight Dig Fate and Fortune

Yacht Club Games and Nitrome aren’t done with Shovel Knight Dig, as Fate and Fortune DLC has just been announced. All players will be able to access it for free.

The DLC includes a new quest called Knightmare Mode, mementos to unlock and show off in the hub, lots of quality of life improvements, and more. Further details are available below.

Knightmare Mode

Something truly evil must be brewing down in the well! It’s up to Shovel Knight & Black Knight to uncover the true Knightmare and put a stop to it! Note: Knightmare Mode will become available to players after they complete the base game.


Yip! Yip! Ya’ found a new character in the well! At the end of each stage, Fetcher will be waiting down in the well to do what he does best….fetch! For a measly 625 Bones (errrr, Gems)…he’ll give players a chance to exit the well mid-run to save their gold and return to the HUB.


Calling all trophy seekers! We made an update especially for you! The Mementos are keepsakes awarded to the player for their many accomplishments and will decorate the HUB. Screenshot it and show it off on Twitter! We will clap for you!


The compendium keeps track of EVERYTHING you’ve collected and/or encountered in the well! Perfect for all you completionists!

New Music Track

Music maestro, Jake Kaufman, whipped up another banger for Shovel Knight Dig’s soundtrack! This track can be heard echoing in the Mushroom Mines, it’s called “Hexcadecimate”!
