2014 saw the release of Yacht Club Games’ Shovel Knight, a retro throwback to the 2D sidescrollers of old, complete with challenging difficulty. To say it was met with acclaim would be an understatement, and now it looks like Yacht Club is about to win the world over again with a new adventure, Specter of Torment, which puts you in the armor of one Specter Knight.
This new title covers the adventures of the boss from the base game. Along with his wicked scythe, Specter comes with a Dash Slash ability that lets him dive toward the enemy while in midair and a wall climb that’ll prevent some unwanted pitfalls. But don’t expect to be able to climb everything–he can only climb a set distance.
Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment will release this spring on all systems where the base game is available. As with the Plague of Shadows campaign, it’ll come with new Feats and Challenges for Specter Knight, Challenge Mode, and it’ll all be free!
