Yacht Club Games took the opportunity at The Game Awards 2016 to show off Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment, the prequel to Shovel Knight.
Whoah! Did you get everything!? You’ll not only play through Specter Knight’s own story, but also see new areas, new music, new enemies, new objects, new boss fights, new weapons, new armors, and way, way more than ever before. Even the villainous boss knights have prepared new tricks and tactics!
If you have played Shovel Knight, you will be aware that Specter Knight is one of the bosses that you face in your quest. However, in this prequel, it’s your mission as Specter Knight to recruit the Order of No Quarter for The Enchantress
Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment is due to launch in Spring 2017 and will be released as a free DLC for those that already own the original.
Yacht Club Games have not yet confirmed which platforms Specter of Torment will release on, however. Shovel Knight is currently available on PC, Nintendo 3DS, Wii U, OS X, Linux, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Xbox One and Amazon Fire TV. So if it is coming to all versions, they are going to be pretty busy over the next few months preparing for launch.
