PAX West 2017: New Shovel Knight amiibo Pack Announced for Add-on Content

Shovel Knight is the quite possibly the most successful indie game to come from crowd funding campaigns. It has truly captured the old school platforming charm while adding much humor and character development. The game became so popular that Nintendo had created its own amiibo figure and now there are more coming from the series.

Now, it has been announced a 3 pack of amiibo for each of the DLC characters will be made available. Plague Knight, Specter Knight and King Knight have all received starring roles in their own playable campaigns, so now they’ll get bonus content thanks to their own amiibo figures. Exclusive armor will be made available which can be customized with current abilities. Challenge Stages are added to see if you’ve got what it takes to become a true Shovel Knight master. You will also be able to summon Fairies who can aide you on a quest.

There is no price announced but should be available in early 2018. These will work for Wii U, 3DS and Switch versions of the game. Read all about the amiibo on Yacht Club Games’ website and stay tuned for more details. Watch the reveal trailer starring YouTube’s Egoraptor below!
