Shovel Knight confirmed to get his own amiibo
At Nintendo’s pre-PAX Nindies at Night Event, the company confirmed the release of the Shovel Knight amiibo. The amiibo will unlock a cooperative mode on the Wii U version of Shovel Knight and will also unlock a plethora of exclusive challenges on the Wii U and NIntendo 3DS version of Shovel Knight that are unavailable on the other ports of the game. Moreover, many different customization options can be saved to the Shovel Knight amiibo so players can change the armor color of their Shovel Knights any time they wish. If that was not enough, the game itself will also receive a full retail release in October.
Nintendo has also confirmed that the Shovel Knight amiibo will be compatible with all future installments that Yacht Club Games puts out on their consoles. In addition, Yacht Club will soon announce the release date and retail price of the Shovel Knight amiibo. With this amiibo’s release coming to fruition, hopefully this means that Nintendo will begin to collaborate with other independent developers to create brand new amiibos.
