Yacht Club games took to Twitter to answer one fan’s question on if we might see a physical release of Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment and Treasure Trove in the future. Sadly, it looks like it might be quite a while before we see that shiny Shovel Knight Switch box on store shelves. While the company isn’t ruling out a physical release entirely, it appears that it wants to wait until after the third expansion exploring King Knight is released.
@ChrisArrowood98 Digital only at this time. We might try for a physical release once King Knight's campaign is complete.
