We’re excited to introduce a new feature where Crossovers, like Shovel Knight, Gloxbox, and Hellboy, no longer require you to use the base Legend! This update also brings five new items to Mallhalla and makes the Sword of the Raven available on all platforms.

Additionally, we made some game improvements, updated the Brawl of the Week to 3v3 Beachbrawl, and more.

Using a Crossover no longer requires you to use the base Legend! For example, if you own the Shovel Knight Epic Crossover but do not own Gnash and Gnash is not on rotation, you will still be able to use Shovel Knight.

  • Loadouts for Crossovers will now be saved separately from the base Legend.
  • Crossovers have their own dedicated Roster spot in the Legend Select.
  • There is a new setting in the System Settings that will allow you to go back to collapsing Crossovers.

Odin has brought Gifts of Asgard to the earthly realm, starting with the Sword of the Raven! This social media weapon skin is now available for ALL platforms.
