Tonight at The Game Awards, Yacht Club Games showed off the first teaser for its upcoming prequel, Specter of Torment, which is due to release in spring 2017.

Featuring Specter Knight as the playable character, his playstyle differs significantly from the platformer's main character Shovel Knight. Specter Knight can slash through enemies with his scythe, and unleash a diving attack midair. While he isn't able to jump too high, he can instead climb walls. Watch the trailer below.
