about

"Plague of Shadows" is the first DLC campaign for Shovel Knight. Released in September 2015, the game features boss villain Plague Knight as its playable character with new gameplay twists not found in the original. Composer Jake Kaufman takes the sound and feel Manami Matsumae established for Plague Knight in her tracks for the main game, but takes things even further, giving Plague Knight a unique, yet cute and charming identity.

Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows The Definitive Soundtrack features all 14 tracks found in the original digital release, with a brand new cover designed by illustrator Hitoshi Ariga. The booklet includes a comprehensive interview with Jake Kaufman, an essay by Bob Mackey of Retronauts, and original archival artworks.

Message from Jake Kaufman:
This album is dedicated to two fabulous ladies: First, Manami Matsumae, who composed Plague Knight's amazing theme, off of which I based this whole soundtrack -- and who has inspired me tremendously for decades. And Maritza, a friend and Shovel Knight super-fan, who rocks a Plague Knight costume like nobody's business, and is always there to cheer us on. I am lucky to have met both of you!
