We’ve headed out on a number of Shovel Knight adventures over the years, but soon, we’re going to have the chance to revisit the series’ very first outing. At its recent Yacht Club Games Presents showcase, alongside revealing that the next mainline Shovel Knight game was in the works, the developer also announced Shovel Knight: Shovel of Hope DX.

As its name suggests, Shovel of Hope DX is an upcoming expanded re-release of the very original Shovel Knight’s very first campaign. It will come with a number of improvements and new features, including 20 playable characters in total, online multiplayer, and more. There will also be a new Rewind function, which will do exactly what it sounds like, while players will be able to use Save States. Beyond that, you can also expect over 300 cheats with which to modify the adventure and gameplay experience in a number of different ways. Meanwhile, previous updates for the game will, of course, be included as well.

“Simply put, this is the definitive edition of Shovel of Hope,” the developer says. “It’s also our way of preserving the game’s historical functionality, ensuring these elements remain available for future generations of players. And with the new multiplayer features and other enhancements, we hope it includes everything on your wish list.”

Thus far, Shovel Knight: Shovel of Hope DX has only been announced for PC. There’s no word on whether it will also be releasing for other platforms, or when exactly it will be releasing. Stay tuned for more updates.
