In the PS3, PS4, PS Vita, Xbox One and PC versions of the Shovel Knight: Shovel of Hope campaign, a small hidden sidequest can be found that when completed unlocks a unique armor for Shovel Knight. Although the sidequest is different depending on the console, it is unlocked the same way.

Beginning Edit

The sidequest is hinted at in Shortcut? where an adventurer mentions of a 'double secret' in the Hall of Champions although this is not necessary to activate the quest.

When inside the Hall of Champions Shovel Knight must go to the secret room at the right of the building. When inside he must Shovel Drop the rightmost place he can stand which will reveal a hidden tunnel. The tunnel leads into a dark room containing the Curious Map.

Sony Versions Edit

In the Sony versions, the Curious Map causes Kratos to appear roaming on the Map. After defeating Kratos in a three stage fight, Kratos bequeaths Shovel Knight the Grave Digger's Shovel. Speaking to the Shovel Smith will give some special dialogue but when given to the Armorer he will create the Armor of Chaos.

Xbox One and Pc Versions Edit

In the Xbox One and PC versions, the Curious Map causes the Mysterious Area to unlock on the map. Here Shovel Knight will meet the Battletoads. If he agrees to train with them he will undergo a lengthy three sequence level reminiscent of the Battletoads game which when completed unlocks Toad Gear.
