Shovel Knight is available physically on Wii U and 3DS. On Switch though, the game will only be sold on the eShop – at least at launch.

Yacht Club Games isn’t against a physical version of Shovel Knight for Switch. Actually, the studio told one fan on Twitter that it might be considered after work wraps up on King Knight’s campaign.

The tweet is as follows:


Would you prefer to buy a physical version of Shovel Knight for Switch, or do you not mind settling for a digital copy?

After the last press release from Nintendo detailing the games that will be available on Switch’s eShop for launch date, Yacht Club Games has made its own official statement about the release of Shovel Knight in the new console.

They have confirmed that both versions (Treasure Trove and Specter of Torment) will indeed appear on March 3rd in Europe and North America. Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove will cost $/€24.99, while Specter of Torment as a stand-alone game will cost $/€9.99.

Treasure Trove includes the complete game, but in the near future the other two stand-alone adventures, Shovel of Hope and Plague of Shadows, will be able to buy separately. As for the rest of platforms, the new content for Shovel Knight will be ready in April.

Additionally, today there will be a lead-up sale to buy Shovel Knight 33% off, starting February 23rd and ending March  2nd. This is the last chance to get the game at a low price, since the Treasure Trove pack will cost more than the base game did until now.

Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment is nearly here. When the new campaign is ready, the update will increase the number of save slots. Yacht Club Games posted some news on Twitter yesterday noting that the Profile count will be doubled.

The message is as follows:


It was just confirmed yesterday that Shovel Knight and the new Specter of Torment content is launching with Switch on March 3. Other platforms, including Wii U and 3DS, will have access later on.

Yacht Club Games has finally wrapped up Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment. On Twitter earlier today, the studio shared the news.

Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment should be coming to Switch first, and very soon. When a final date is announced, we’ll share that information with you.

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.
