Shovel Knight has more than 300 cheat codes

Published on July 6th, 2014 by Spinnerweb

Yacht Club Games recently released the excellent Shovel Knight for multiple platforms including the 3DS and the Wii U. Now, if you’re having difficulties with the game, you can use one of the many cheat codes to make it easier for you. Or if you’re just looking for a laugh.


That’s right, one of the cheat codes activates ‘Butt Mode’, in which all commonly recurring words like ‘Shield’, ‘Knight’, ‘Health’ and so on are replaced by ‘Butt.’ Those minions from the Despicable Me films are going to love this.

The codes are activated by entering them as your knight’s name on a new save file, and then selecting ‘Yes’ when asked if you want to activate the code. These codes work on all consoles, but they prevent you from unlocking achievements or Feats.

You can find a complete list of the codes here.
