Shovel Knight is an amazing franchise I hope to see continue long into the future, and is one of the few games I have actually beaten more than two times in this sea of endless titles releasing. A must own.

Perhaps the best compliment I can pay Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove is that, when push came to shove, I often found myself choosing to play it instead of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. I haven't been this in love with a game since Fire Emblem: Awakening released back in 2013. Do yourself a favor and buy it if you haven't already. You won't find better value anywhere else.

Though many have already been digging into Shovel of Hope and Plague of Shadows, Treasure Trove is a great reason to steel thy shovel once again with all-new features and a new campaign. A great addition to anyone's Switch library whether you already own it or have yet to experience such an amazing title.

Shovel Knight: Shovel of Truth is a very fun game and one that is a must-have for Nintendo Switch owners. The game's graphics and music are superb, and the game's challenging levels and bosses will keep you busy for several hours. The game can be played while docked, in handheld mode and tabletop mode, so you will always be ready to take on the game wherever you are.

Shovel Knight Treasure Trove brings us back knight with shovel to prove that it remains one of the best independent games of recent years. With the original game, the two expansions and all the content as new modes or game options, this edition is an essential for Nintendo Switch.

This is the best version of Shovel Knight yet, and Treasure Trove is the most complete package. In addition to piling ever more new features on top of the original, Yacht Club has improved on Shovel Knight in nearly every way with the Specter of Torment expansion. From the story and writing to the simple fluidness of platforming and combat, Specter Knight is an excellent new step for the series.

While the original game was a fabulous romp, the Treasure Trove collection is more than worthy of investing some time into. Anyone who already has the original will obtain the upgraded package for free, but if bought separately, each of the three released campaigns should keep you entertained with great platforming that’s full of charm. With more stuff coming in the next year, the Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove is worth its weight in gold.

Shovel Knight is a fresh take on the classic genre, which not only absorbed all the best that could represent the market, but also adapted the old ideas under modern standards

As a package, Treasure Trove is an excellent way to expand a newly-formed Switch library with a wonderful 8-bit platforming package.

Shovel Knight has always been excellent, but bundling these three chapters together, including new functionality, increases the attractiveness of an already incredibly compelling package. These games are fantastic, and having the complete Shovel Knight experience in one spot, clocking in at around 15 hours of gameplay in our case, makes this a must-have for Switch owners - especially those that have so far failed to dig into this game and its add-ons.
