Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove and Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment are coming to Nintendo Switch, developer Yacht Club Games has announced.

To accompany the announcement, the developer revealed that all three of Shovel Knight‘s campaign’s—Shovel Knight, Plague of Shadows, and Specter of Torment—are being rolled into one package called Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove. Players on each platform will also have the option to purchase each campaign separately as a standalone game:

  • Shovel Knight: Shovel of Hope – Shovel of Hope is our new name for the original Shovel Knight game, since it needed a title like the others. What do you think!?
  • Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows – Plague Knight’s Campaign emerges from the Shadows to hopefully get some recognition this time!
  • Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment – Specter of Torment is our most expansive campaign yet. We’re so excited for you to become the reaper!

“Why is this happening? Well, we hope providing less expensive standalone versions will provide better entry points for different types of players,” the developer explains. “Also, players can more easily grab an adventure (or Battle Mode) on another platform!”

Players who already own Shovel Knight will be automatically upgraded to Treasure Trove for free.

Yacht Club Games plans to continue its support of Shovel Knight throughout 2017 with the King Knight’s Campaign, a four-player Battle Mode, and Body Swap Mode, which features body-swapped versions of the main characters in the Shovel Knight’s campaign.
