Shovel Knight Update On Switch Adds 1080p Output While Docked



A new update has been released for the Switch versions of both Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove and Specter of Torment. This will bring the games to version 3.0A and adds various fixes. Additionally, the new update also enables both to run at 1080p while the Switch is docked.


In addition, Yacht Club Games also revealed that Specter of Torment expansion will be heading to other consoles. It is only available on the Switch as of now but will head to the PC and the Japanese eShop for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U on April 5, 2017. It will then come to American/European Nintendo consoles, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Xbox One and Fire TV sometime in April.
