Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove gives you everything you need to play Shovel Knight on Switch. But Yacht Club also released Specter of Torment separately, which some may have opted for if they played the original game on other platforms like 3DS or Wii U.
If you’re one of these people, you might be interested to hear about a unique discount. A sale is now in place where if you’ve bought Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment previously, you can receive a 40% discount on Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove.
You should see the discount automatically when viewing Treasure Trove on the eShop if you bought Specter of Torment. Also, it’s available automatically for new sales of Specter of Torment. Note that discount percentage may vary slightly based on region.

Shovel Knight to support video capture on Switch with future update

Only a handful of Switch games support video capture at the moment. And for older titles, they need to be updated so that players can record footage.
Shovel Knight is one Switch game that will be receiving support for video capture in the future. Yacht Club told one fan on Twitter that it will be added in the next update. We’ll likely be seeing it when King of Cards launches in 2018.
Yacht Club’s tweet is as follows:
Video recording on Switch will be supported in SK's next update, most likely with King of Cards next year.

Yacht Club: Shovel Knight sold more units out of the gate on Switch than any other platform
Posted on 6 months ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop | 2 Comments | 0 Likes
Shovel Knight first appeared nearly three years ago. Despite that, the game did incredibly well on Switch at launch.
Yacht Club’s David D’Angelo told GamesIndustry that Shovel Knight “sold more units out of the gate than any other platform.” However, he also cautioned that the eShop is beginning to become more crowded, and believes Nintendo needs to find an easier way of highlighting both new and old titles.
“I believe many developers right now are experiencing the same phenomenon. At the moment, games definitely stand out when they launch and consumers are excited to purchase, but at this rate there will be an over-abundance of games. We hope Nintendo updates the eShop to make it easier to highlight and find new and old titles.”
