The Shovel Knight saga is almost complete! Soon, the final Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove games (Shovel Knight: King of Cards and Shovel Knight Showdown) will finally be released! How soon? Woah, woah… slow down… First! We have some news, because the completion of Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove warrants something special to celebrate. Something decidedly physical!
Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove
Platforms: Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4
Price: $39.99 MSRP
North America Release Date:
April 9th, 2019 TBD
Europe Release Date:
April 9th, 2019 TBD
Feast your eyes, because Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove is here in physical box form! And that box features all-new illustrations celebrating the many characters of the Shovel Knight world!
Look at the date! That’s correct- the complete Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove has a release date! This means everything, including:
- Shovel Knight: King of Cards
- Shovel Knight Showdown*
- Treasure Trove amiibo 3-pack
- Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove physical release
All of these arrive next year on the very same day. The physical and digital versions of the game will all be available simultaneously. Save that date!
Note: This release date has now been updated. Please see our latest article for more info.
* Shovel Knight Showdown not available on 3DS or Vita.
During the release of Specter of Torment we received many requests to synchronize the update across each and every platform (there are quite a lot…!). For this most grand finale, we are going to do our best to make that happen! We hope everyone enjoys jumping into King Knight’s adventure and battle mode together at the same time! Until then, there’s plenty left for us to do across all of these games!
To accompany the final release of the game, the price of Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove has also risen. Why is that? Similarly to our pricing for Specter of Torment, we figured the immense size and addition of two new brand new games warrants the new price. The price of the digital version will also increase around this release. Until then you can still pick up the game digitally right now, if you want it at the cool, low price of $24.99! We’ll also continue to offer digital standalone versions of each game separately on certain platforms.
Pre-Orders should be live soon at Gamestop, Amazon, Best Buy, and more! To make as big of a splash as possible, and to let retailers know that they need to stock up, you should definitely pre-order now!!
The physical version of Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove contains 5 huge games, including every Shovel Knight product released so far: the original Shovel Knight: Shovel of Hope (including 2 player Co-op and Body Swap), Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows, Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment, Shovel Knight: King of Cards, and Shovel Knight Showdown. There are countless hours of unforgettable single player adventures to embark on, a deep and rewarding multiplayer battle game, dozens and dozens of challenge levels, unique feats for each game to achieve, over a hundred songs… Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove is packed to the gills with every game Yacht Club Games has ever created! There’s enough gameplay in there to last you all the time you need on your favorite desert island!
All of these wonderful games are all on the card/disc! No additional download or waiting required. However, we’ll be sure to to continue support updates if anyone happens runs into a small problem or two post release.
Treasure Trove amiibo!
Don’t forget the Treasure Trove amiibo 3-pack, featuring Plague Knight, Specter Knight, and King Knight!! With the final release date of April 9th, you should see more options pop up online in the coming months! Learn more about these new amiibo here!
We also wanted to answer some common questions we’ve received regarding the upcoming amiibo!
- toggleCan I scan these amiibo through the box like the Shovel Knight amiibo?
No, due to the packaging it is not possible to scan the amiibo contained within the Treasure Trove 3-pack without first removing them from their container.
- toggleWhat features are available with amiibo?
The Plague Knight, Specter Knight, and King Knight amiibo unlock new challenges in their respective games, a cosmetic armor set in their respective games, and a delightful fairy companion usable across all single player Shovel Knight games!
Find out more here.
- toggleWill the Plague/Specter/King amiibo have Custom Knight? Will it unlock co-op?
These amiibo do not activate Custom Knight or Co-op.
Custom Knight is a feature specific to Shovel of Hope and the Shovel Knight amiibo only.
We do not have plans to introduce co-op to Plague of Shadows, Specter of Torment, or King of Cards. As of Version 3.0 (Specter of Torment Update) the Shovel Knight amiibo is no longer required to play co-op on Wii U.
- toggleWill the Treasure Trove amiibo work on 3DS? Wii U?
Support for the Treasure Trove amiibo will be added to Wii U, 3DS, and Switch versions of Shovel Knight with the arrival of King of Cards.
- toggleWill you ever "reprint" more Shovel Knight amiibo?
We would be interested in doing this! But we have nothing to share at this time.
- toggleCan I purchase the Plague Knight, Specter Knight, or King Knight amiibo individually?
These amiibo are only available together as part of the Treasure Trove amiibo 3-pack.
Even More On The Way!
Wow, combined with our Shovel Knight Showdown reveal… that’s a lot of news! Well, stay tuned this coming month because we’re going to keep the Showdown news rolling in!
We hope you’re all excited the complete Shovel Knight package is arriving at retail. And thank you so much for supporting Yacht Club Games and making this all possible. We couldn’t be happier to deliver on Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove’s full Kickstarter promises – after all, Shovel Knight turns 5 years old next year!
