Rumour: Shovel Knight amiibo leaked by GAME


Yacht Club Games may have announced that Shovel Knight was headed to retail, but it appears that they had another piece of news up their sleeve.

GAME Brighton has seemingly leaked plans for a Shovel Knight amiibo in a since deleted tweet, which will see release on November 27th in Europe. With pre-orders being taken from tomorrow, those wishing to own the heroic master of Shovelry will be required to place a £5 deposit.

Product details refer to compatibility with Shovel Knight on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS to unlock exclusive content. However, reference to “Compatibility with Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL and Nintendo 2DS systems coming in 2015” raises some suspicion given the time frame.

Regardless, if this holds any truth we’re likely to hear more imminently. As to precisely when is unclear, but the mistaken tweet is an indication that it won’t be far off.
