The Team at Yacht Club Games have been hard at work producing new content to add to their flagship game Shovel Knight, so much so that they have practically maintain radio silence up until now. They have now taking to their website and Twitter to announce that the Shovel Knight: Specter Of Torment Campaign featuring Specter Knight (the scythe wielding menace from the original game) will be coming to Shovel Knight in the Spring next year. That isn’t all though, they have gone to great lengths to produce colourful animated GIF’s of Specter Knight in action on their website which you can check out some of them below 😉
Specter Knight offers a different style of gameplay to Shovel Knight & Plague Knight so Players won’t feel like it is just a palette swap. The different techniques include aerial combos attacks, running up walls and wall jumping. It is definitely something to look forward to, that’s for sure.
On the other hand, I am sure a lot of you were wondering what happened to the King Knight Campaign? It is still coming according to Yacht Club Gamess but not until after the release of the Specter Knight Campaign. A new game mode will also be accompanying the DLC on release but it is not confirmed on what the new game mode will be.You can find out more information directly from Yacht Club Games’ Website via this link. It has more animated images, goes into depth with the new attacks and movement scheme, and also announces a limited physical print of Shovel Knight for PS Vita.
