3.3 - Crypt Upkeeper

Hello, Specters! Here's what changed in today's build!

Change Log
  • New: Japanese language options added (Kanji and Kana).
  • New: During end game credits, an icon will be displayed next to stages which have successfully had all checkpoints broken.
  • New: Device detections and icons for Switch controllers (Pro Controller and Joy-Con) as well as Xbox One controllers.
  • New: Mouse buttons can now be bound to gameplay actions. LMB, RMB...you name it!

  • Fix: Teethalon sometimes moving slowly throughout the entire chase sequence.
  • Fix: Incorrect fullscreen monitor displaying in the Options Menu.
  • Fix: Curio Upgrade menu can now be advanced with the Start button, similar to other menus that don’t use Start for another action.
  • Fix: Using Cold Shoulder after a certain dancing scene would pause the animation (the coldest of shoulders).
  • Fix: Specific timing would enable movement while still in a nearby shop after speaking with Red.
  • Fix: Defeating Tinker Knight very, very fast with cheats resulting in unintended behavior.
  • Fix: Being killed by Propeller Knight moments before a phase change would bring Specter back with no health.
  • Fix: Reize would appear incorrectly when defeated mid-teleport.
  • Fix: Plague Knight would sometimes appear without contact damage active after a teleport.
  • Fix: Performing a unique pose in a certain armor set is now duplicated by Blood Mirror (Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!)
  • Fix: Getting hit right when beginning a rail grind would cancel out death.
  • Fix: Specter Knight losing active attack frames when releasing a charged slash at the very end of a rail.
  • Fix: Starting Black Knight, Phantom Striker, or Treasure Knight with Skeleton Sniper or active lantern flames causing erroneous behavior.
  • Fix: Luan jumps prioritized better when backtracking through a room.
    Change: Adjusted visibility of certain background tiles found in Tower and Flying Machine stages.
  • Various localization and menu prompt spacing fixes.
  • Improvements to keyboard key icons so they take up less space.

About This Game

Disclaimer: If you own Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove, you will NOT need to purchase Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment separately. This title is included with all versions of Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove.

Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment is the action-packed prequel to Shovel Knight! Take control of Specter Knight, servant to the Enchantress, in a quest to recruit a cadre of knights and create the Order of No Quarter. With his scythe and preternatural agility at the ready, he can glide across the ground, clamber up walls, and command an arsenal of curious weapons.

If he carries out his duties, Specter Knight may have a chance at regaining his lost humanity and breaking his chains of servitude. But what cruel tricks might the Enchantress have up her sleeve?

Features:

  • Climb walls, leap over gaps, and dispatch enemies with the Dash Slash. Specter Knight’s playstyle brings motion and action to the forefront!
  • Collect and upgrade curios to unleash all new special attacks.
  • Test your scythe skills with Feats and Challenge Stages featuring boss rematches, platforming challenges, and more!
  • Yacht Club Games' beautifully authentic style bridges the gap between yesterday and today. Design, art, and audio hearken back to the days of 8-bit.
  • A somber tale told with a light touch to narrative with humor, levity, and heart.
  • Awesome soundtrack by Jake "Virt" Kaufman!
  • Balanced gameplay is a warm welcome to newcomers, and an old embrace for experts.
  • Lovable characters and bosses!
  • Take on a new challenge and uncover all of the world's secrets with New Game+!
