Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment available in Japan
Nintendo have updated the original Shovel Knight game in Japan so players can play Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment for free on both Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. The Nintendo Switch version has not been localised yet however. New trailer below…
Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment is coming to both Japanese 3DS and Wii U as a free update on 5 April published by Nintendo. No mention of the Japanese Switch release at present although that may or may not be published by Nintendo!
Yacht Club Games have confirmed that “Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove and Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment will be released for Nintendo Switch!” The original game was published on both 3DS and Wii U by Nintendo in Japan. More to follow!
Yacht Club Games’ excellent Shovel Knight has sold 1.5 million copies as revealed in USGamer. There’s no platform breakdown (3DS was at 29% and Wii U at 17% when the game was at 1.2 million) nor territorial breakdown (Japanese sales are expected to be relatively low although the game and amiibo were both published by Nintendo). Thanks to Nirolak from NeoGAF.
