Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove (Nintendo Switch) Review | 8-Bit Eric

8-Bit Eric reviews Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove for the Nintendo Switch. This is a bundle that contains the original Shovel Knight, Plague Knight and the brand new Specter of Torment game.

The original Shovel Knight is a small but polished 2D action game with great platforming, an arsenal of varied tools, and a surprisingly well-written story.

The 16-bit inspired platformer is one of the best games to come out in the past few years, and one of the few to really capture that nostalgia that gamers like myself grew up on. Shovel Knight has been released on practically every console in the past few years, and now Switch owners now have a chance to experience with the Treasure Trove, which comes packed with the original game as well as the excellent expansion as well as some other goodies packed in.Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove packs a ton of value in its $29.99 price tag.

Treasure Trove includes the original game, Shovel Knight, along with its alternative story (Plague Knight) and the newly released prequel (Spectre Knight). which is being released first exclusively on Nintendo Switch, with other formats getting the update in April.

All versions of Shovel Knight are upgraded to Treasure Trove at no cost, with more free content planned in the future. Specter Of Torment has also been released as a separate standalone game.

The Switch version of the game comes packed with some features found in the previous Wii U version, as well as some new ones. For starters, amiibo support returns, allowing players to customize their knight for use in co-op.

Shovel Knight!!
One of the best indie games in the last few years that legit blew everyone out of the water... Keiji Inafune is rolling in his grave... I'm just killing he's still alive.

Subscribe and we'll tell you more cool facts!

Shovel Knight's blue color scheme is a reference to the NES' color palette which had more variations of blue than any other color, which is also the reason a lot of NES characters are blue.

The idea for Shovel Knight started out as a sort of a joke conversation over lunch that got too serious. Yacht Club was already planning to make a game with a retro aesthetic, and when the designers decided to adopt the sword thrust from The Adventure of Link, they thought it would be better suited for a shovel in their game.

Sheild Knight was initially a princess to follow the NES throwback theme, and was referred to as Princess McGuffin in the concept stage. She was turned into a knight to build a stronger connection with the player halfway through development.

Shield Knights sacrifice at the end of the game was originally intended to be legitimate, with the ending cutscene depicting Shovel Knight burying her. This was changed so the players wouldn't feel cheated on account of the characters being underdeveloped, and following a lighthearted ending. Yacht Club also considered making her a playable character through co-op, but unfortunately this never came to fruition.

If you pledged $200 or more to Shovel Knights Kickstarter, your face would be included in the Hall of Champions bonus stage. This level has a ton of recognizable gaming personalities, including Matt from TwoBestFriends, Vitas Varnas from Did You Know Gaming, and Arin Hanson, also known as Egoraptor from Game Grumps, who forgot to send in a picture of his face, so his grumphead is used instead.

The wandering bosses encountered throughout the game are designed by backers who pledged $1000 or more to the games Kickstarter. Most notably, Baz was designed by Matt and Woolie from TwoBestFriends. The character is based on an unused character design from Street Fighter 2 referred to as Zubaz, and appears in other games the two have made pledges to. The Liquid Samurai in the games later stages were also a product of this pledge reward.

Yacht Club allowed fans to vote for which Knights from the Order of No Quarter would get their own campaign, and the Dig the Vote page on their website offers details on what the mechanics could have been like for those who didn't make the cut, including Black Knight and The Enchantress herself

The Bard that Shovel Knight delivers sheet music to represents the games composer Jake Kaufman.

All the games music was composed on Famitracker, a program specifically for making music for the NES, meaning the music can be played on an actual NES using a flash cartridge with the .NSF file, which Jake Kaufman has released.

Mega Man composer Manami Matsumae composed the music for Plague Knights Explodatorium and Treasure Knights Iron Whale.

Shovel Knight sports over 321 cheat codes which are activated by letter combinations in the name selection screen when starting a new game, the most notorious of which being Butt mode.

The Japanese version originally replaced the gold treasure with koban-style Japanese coins.

Checkpoints originally only worked if the player had a certain amount of gold when they first touched

Fans have given characters some pretty interesting nicknames, referring to Specter Knight

Yacht Club originally wanted to use MediEvil's Sir Daniel Fortesque as the Playstation exclusive boss, but went with Kratos at Sony's insistence.

The developers made body swap versions for almost every character, but only the main cast of Shovel of Hope made it into the game.

Shovel Knight makes a cameo in the Tales of Alethrion episode The First Hero, where he appears to be regaling other heroes with his adventures before being murdered.

Shovel Knight also has cameos in a myriad of other games

Plague Knight discovering the King Knights crown is not made of real gold is a reference to the story of Archimedes,

Tinker Knights weakness to his own stage's item is an homage to Mega Man 2

Digging up campfire ashes nets you the Only You feat, which is a reference to Smokey Bear and his catchphrase Only you can prevent wildfires.
