Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove is one of the greatest success stories to emerge from Kickstarter, proving that fans and developers can come together to realize a shared vision. What started as a stellar action platformer has grown by leaps and bounds over the years, with the last expansion—Shovel Knight: King of Cards—due out sometime in the next few months. The Switch eShop offers up the option to buy Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment—one of the previous expansions—as a standalone game, but now Yacht Club Games has announced a promotion to tempt owners of the expansion into getting the full version.
In a blog post on the studio’s site, it was announced that Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove will be getting a discount of up to 40% off if you already own Specter of Torment. The decision was made because those who bought both games were technically paying more than they should; the discount just about covers the price of Specter of Torment. With the new expansion just around the corner, the time has never been better to upgrade.
