Shovel Knight amiibo is happening ⊟
And it unlocks coop in the Wii U version of the game! In addition, “On Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, the amiibo can be used to level up and customize Shovel Knight with new visual enhancements, relics and abilities. These abilities can then be used in new, exclusive amiibo challenge levels.”
The Nintendo press release also mentions that it’ll be compatible with any future Shovel Knight games, so… there are going to be some of those. Not that that’s a surprise, I guess. Shovel Knight seems to be doing extraordinarily well, considering the retail release and this!
No word yet on when this is coming out and how impossible it will be to acquire.
