Developers Nitrome and Yacht Club Games have added the Shovel Knight Dig "Fate and Fortune" free update, currently available through Steam and Apple Arcade.

Due out at a later date for consoles, the update adds a challenging new quest called "Knightmare Mode" after players complete the base game. Also added are Mementos, keepsakes awarded to the player to decorate the HUB. A new music track also appears in the Mushroom Mines.

The sprite-based platformer's original soundtrack, composed by Virt (Jake Kaufman), can be purchased through Bandcamp and Steam. The album is also available for streaming on Spotify and Youtube Music.
