How’s it goin’, edge lords! It’s been a busy year right out of the gate for us! We’ve been working nonstop to put the finishing touches on Specter of Torment, Body Swap, Co-op for all consoles, and even a few other surprises! First up, we finally have a Switch release date to share:


Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment will release March 3rd on Nintendo Switch for $9.99!!


Oh! And…

Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove will release March 3rd on Nintendo Switch for $24.99!!

 That’s right! Shovel Knight will release day and date, digitally, with the launch of the Switch! After unboxing your favorite new system be sure to head on over to the eShop where you can download the very latest Shovel Knight adventure! Then get ready to…

  • Ride your scythe while you hang out on a rooftop!
  • Fight the Order of No Quarter on your way to work!
  • Feel the joy of Joy-Cons as you effortlessly bring Shovel Knight co-op to a friend’s place!
  • Marvel at Shovel Knight’s big beautiful pixel art on the big screen, while blasting all new music through your sound system!


 There are so many ways to play Shovel Knight now… and so many campaigns, play styles, and stories to see! We hope it will be the perfect game to kick off or compliment your Switch game library.


Specter of Torment and Treasure Trove Everywhere!

We’ve been working alongside Nintendo to make this launch day release possible. We’re happy we could be there on Day 1– considering we formally wrapped up development just last week!

But there’s no time to sit on a parapet and look wistfully into the distance!! Our full attention is on releasing the Specter of Torment and Treasure Trove Update everywhere in April. This is a huge undertaking for us, but we’re working tirelessly to get everything out as fast as we can!

To be clear: Specter of Torment will arrive as a free update to Shovel Knight in April on:

  • Wii U (digital and physical)
  • 3DS (digital and physical)
  • PS4 (digital and physical)
  • Vita (digital and physical)
  • PS3
  • Xbox One
  • PC
  • Linux
  • Mac
  • Steam
  • com
  • Humble Store Amazon Fire TV


That’s a lot of platforms and we need to make sure we’re testing and bug fixing each and every one! Especially with standalone Specter of Torment games and features like SK co-op which bring more controllers into the mix! We’ll be sure to share specific release dates for each platform as we learn them.
