Shovel Knight was released in 2014 to much praise, and many fans have been asking for a sequel since its release. Now, Yacht Club has shown off a trailer for their brand new expansion to the game, Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment, which is a prequel to the original game. The trailer focuses on the new playable character, Specter Knight, a boss from the main story of Shovel Knight, jumping through the classic retro-styled levels that the original game was known for. You can check out the trailer above. Specter of Torment is set to release in Spring 2017.

Our Verdict


Adam Sherrill
Writing is half of my life. Video games make up the other half. I decided to put these two hobbies together and join Gamnesia back in 2015. I spend most of my time working at a retail store and paying off my student debt. When I'm not getting stressed about the thousands of dollars I owe my loan providers, I play tons of video games (which just puts me into more debt). I'm also currently writing a novel in what little spare time I have. It's a story I've been wanting to write for a while, but I don't want to talk about it until I have most of it completed. Any Gamnesia-related inquiries may be sent to [email protected] Feel free to follow my personal Twitter if you want (@Pindlo). I mostly just retweet things.
