With the Shovel Knight amiibo carving a path to retail, Yacht Club Games has begun rolling out update 2.1 in preparation.

That covers newly introduced options, adjustments and fixes to address uncovered bugs. It is the Shovel Knight amiibo that is the main attraction, but other changes see the Iron Man 2014 cheat back in service and – megaton – the ability to stand on all roofs in the Village.

The update is now live for Wii U in Europe, with Nintendo 3DS coming closely behind!
