    Aww, no 2017 release? Well whatever, if the last three campaigns are anything to go by, this’ll be worth the wait, too.

    So if I bought Treasure Trove on Switch, do I get this for free?

  • Captain Vidya

    Yes, as well as the battle mode that this should come with.

  • Snorlaxation

    I’m glad they’re still providing content for it

  • Vitor Santos

    It says it’s for WiiU, but I’ve yet to see the Specter of Torment DLC appear on it.
    Then again, I bought a WiiU.

  • Heresy Hammer

    I also have this for the wiiu. I can play specter of torment no problem.

  • chaoguy

    I can’t find it in the E-Shop. Or is it an automatic update you can only see once you beat Plague Knight’s campaign?
