Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove Adds 1080p Support for Nintendo Switch in New Update

Shovel Knight has been getting a bevy of news today — only earlier today Yacht Club Games revealed that Shovel Knight’s Specter of Torment expansion would be coming to all consoles in April. Now Yacht Club has revealed a new patch for the Nintendo Switch version of Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove will be getting a handful of new fixes and (notably) 1080p output when docked.

Previously the game ran at 720p when both docked and undocked , but this free update allows you to change the setting when first playing the game in docked mode.

Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove is currently available on Nintendo Switch for $24.99 — check out the game’s full patch notes below:

Fix: Specter of Torment: Crash when defeating the final boss with a German language setting.

Fix: Specter of Torment: Fixed a bug that allowed Specter Knight to Judgment Rush to unintended locations during certain scenes.

Fix: Specter of Torment: Horace sometimes rewarding the wrong gold amount when reaching the tower’s top.

Screen Scale video option is only applied and available while playing in docked mode.

Screen Scale menu now appears for the first time that the game is started while in TV mode.

Note: If your TV is not displaying the game’s full image we recommend adjusting your TV Settings from the System Settings menu — this way you’re set for all games in the future! Learn how to do so here.
