Update: This free update is now live, so we thought we'd give you a quick reminder. If you already own the base game, make sure to boot it up, ensure it's updated to the latest version, and enjoy some sweet new content!
Original Article (Mon 25th Nov, 2019 15:15 GMT): The chaotic rhythm-based gameplay of Just Shapes & Beats is about to get a whole lot "Shovelier" with the launch of some new and exclusive Shovel Knight tracks headed our way on 4th December.
Developer Berzerk Studio has teamed up with Yacht Club Games to release Just Shapes & Beats' second free batch of DLC, known as 'Mixtapes', and features four exclusive remixes of beloved tracks from the games. Plague Knight, Specter Knight, King Knight and, of course, Shovel Knight will all get in on the musical bullet-hell action.
Here's the lowdown (you can get a sneaky listen in the new trailer above):
- Danimal Cannon - Strike the Earth! (remix)
- Rainbowdragoneyes - Flowers of Antimony (remix)
- Kubbi - In the Halls of the Usurper (remix)
- Shirobon - La Danse Macabre (remix) <--- BRAND NEW BOSS
These new tracks can be played in the game's Challenge mode and can be unlocked using Beat Points or with each character's respective amiibo figure. As it happens, full amiibo support is also on the way, with any other figure of your choosing granting you 100 Beat Points per day (up to five times) when you scan it.
You don't need to ask us twice when it comes to more Shovel Knight music. Just Shapes & Beats is available from the eShop for £15.09.
I was talking to my friend just yesterday about how we haven't heard about this since it was initially annouced so funny that this news pops up now. Just Shapes & Beats is an incredible game so I'm really looking forward to this.
I just love it when games get over the top in such creative ways! But man, Shovel Knight, what a game!
I am a dude of very words...nice stuff.
I need to get back to this game - it's well-crafted and good fun.
Nice to see amiibo support because getting all those beat points to unlock all the song was a bit tiresome. Amazing game though
Shovel Knight soundtrack plus modern chiptunes music? A good combination if I ever heard of one.
This game just keeps giving! <3
Gave the tracks a quick go to S rank them on Normal earlier. A lot of fun. Just Shapes & Beats is such an underappreciated games. Right up there as one of my favourite eShop games.
@fafonio yeah I just can't stand the steam version just straight up putting shovel knight on the cover and having to do this bs with no songs outta the gate, giving it the sans-X Megaman X7 treatment. Any amiibo should unlock everything too, it's sad. Good game, but terrible unlocking approach.
