Free Shovel Knight content coming to Just Shapes & Beats


Digging the grave, I got it made

Berzerk Studio has announced a collaboration with Yacht Club Games which will see four tunes from the amazing Shovel Knight soundtrack make their debut in frenzied rhythm game Just Shapes & Beats.

The four tunes, exclusively remixed for JS&B, represent four of Shovel Knight’s famous characters: Plague Knight, Specter Knight, King Knight and the spade-swinging hero himself, Shovel Knight. Each track can be played unlocked via the Playlist. In a neat touch, Nintendo Switch owners can also access the new tracks via each character’s respective amiibo.

The four tracks in the Shovel Knight update are as follows:

  • Danimal Cannon – Strike the Earth! (remix)
  • Rainbowdragoneyes – Flowers of Antimony (remix)
  • Kubbi – In the Halls of the Usurper (remix)
  • Shirobon – La Danse Macabre (remix)

The Shovel Knight update will arrive for all players free of charge on December 4. Just Shapes & Beats is a great, somewhat unsung member of the modern rhythm game genre, and hopefully this cool crossover will bring new fans into the fold, hypnotised by its wild visuals and addictive, challenging gameplay.

Just Shapes & Beats is available now on PC, PS4, and Nintendo Switch.
