Shovel Knight On Sale On PS4, Xbox One, Switch, And PC
Plus even more platforms.
The retro-style action platformer Shovel Knight has made it to nearly every modern gaming platform on the planet and, according to developer Yacht Club Games, has now sold 2 million copies. To celebrate, right now you can get Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove--which contains the core game, plus all of the expansions--for $20 / £15 on nearly every platform. The sale will end April 18.
The PlayStation Store has Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove for the sale price on PS4, PS3, and PS Vita. Xbox One owners can get it for the same price on the Xbox Store. On the Nintendo Eshop, you can get the discount on Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove for Nintendo Switch, Nintendo 3DS, and even the Wii U. And if you're a PC gamer, you can buy it on Steam, Humble Store, or GOG for--you guessed it--the same price.
Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove comes with the core game, plus all of the expansions. Shovel Knight originally came out in 2014 and contained only the titular character's campaign. Since then, Yacht Club has released two additional DLC expansions, starring Plague Knight and Specter Knight. A third and final expansion, starring King Knight, is expected to release sometime this year, free for Treasure Trove owners. Each of the knights has a unique set of moves and skills, making them play quite differently from one another.
In our Shovel Knight review, we said, "No matter which era it had been released in, Shovel Knight would have been embraced. Its inherent charms are timeless. Shovel Knight is a good reminder that game design does age but can never die and that simple mechanics can still be immensely satisfying."
So if you haven't played Shovel Knight before, or you're looking to play the expansions, you might as well get the whole package while it's on sale. Oh yeah, and there's a Shovel Knight Amiibo, too.
