Yacht Club Games’ Shovel Knight became one of the surprise hits of 2014 and since its release the studio has continued to evolve and expand the game through new campaigns and other DLC, with the game’s Specter of Torment campaign coming in just a few months.

In an update on the PlayStation Blog, developer Yacht Club Games announced that Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment will be coming in April and continue the saga from the perspective of Specter Knight in a brand new campaign.

Alongside the new campaign, Yacht Club also confirmed that Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove will launch in April as well, which acts as a new “collection” of the original game plus all of the game’s previous campaigns, DLC, and other add-ons and features. As revealed by Yacht Club Games alongside the new announcements for the Nintendo Switch, all owners of the original Shovel Knight on all platforms will automatically be updated to the Treasure Trove edition of the game for free and continue to receive all new campaigns and updates through there, as the price of the game will be going up in the future.

Alongside the confirmed release of the new campaigns and the Treasure Trove collection, Yacht Club Games also announced that Specter of Torment and the upcoming co-op update will be available to demo at the upcoming PAX South next week.

Shovel Knight is available now for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, 3DS, PS Vita, Wii U, PC, Mac, Linux, and Amazon Fire TV, with an upcoming version coming for the Nintendo Switch. The game’s upcoming new campaign Specter of Torment will release in April 2016, along with the Treasure Trove version.
