You will need to jump, slash, and dig your way downwards through swaths of dirt in this all-new adventure. After Drill Knight and his dastardly digging crew blast apart Shovel Knight’s peaceful campsite and steal his loot, he grabs his trusty Shovel Blade and starts tunneling after them.
With levels that have been meticulously crafted and then “stitched together using proprietary generation techniques for infinite replayability,” you will burrow into an ever-changing chasm of mystery.
You will unearth untold riches that will let you outfit Shovel Knight with permanent items and upgrades to your adventuring equipment, to help you descend even further into the depths of the earth.
