Yacht Club Games and Nitrome have announced a free ‘Fate and Fortune’ DLC update for Shovel Knight Dig. It’s available now for mobile and PC, and will be coming to consoles “soon”.
This free DLC adds “even more” to the adventure, including the challenging Knightmare mode, “sweet memories” to unlock and display, tons of quality-of-life improvements, and even a new music track.
Here’s the rundown, along with a look:
THAT? BLACK KNIGHT IS ON DIG?!?!
Something truly evil must be cooking in the well! It’s up to Shovel Knight and Black Knight to discover the true Knightmare and put an end to it!
Note: Knightmare mode will be available to players once they complete the base game.
MEET YOUR NEW BEST BUD!
Yep! Yep! You already found a new character in the well! At the end of each stage, Fetcher will be waiting at the pit to do what he does best…fetch! For a measly 625 Bones (errrr, Gems)… it will give players a chance to exit the pit halfway to salvage the gold from it and return to the HUB.
IT’S TIME TO SHOW
Calling all trophy seekers! We made an update especially for you! Mementos are mementos awarded to the player for their many achievements and will decorate the HUB. Take a screenshot and show it on Twitter! We’ll clap for you!
The compendium keeps track of EVERYTHING you’ve collected and/or found in the pit! Perfect for all completionists!
NEW MUSIC TRACK
Master musician Jake Kaufman has cooked up another hit for the Shovel Knight Dig soundtrack! This track can be heard blaring through the Mushroom Mines, it’s called “Hexcadecimate”!
