Indie game Shovel Knight is getting an official amiibo, and I'm so excited you guys
It's shovelin' time!
The titular hero of indie 3DS game Shovel Knight is getting his own amiibo, and I'm going to buy one and kiss it.
Not only can you put the amiibo on your shelf and look at it lovingly and pretend to make it fight other amiibo and your pets, but it will unlock exclusive goodies in the game (provided you've got a New 3DS, with its built-in NFC reader).
Slap that amiibo on your screen and you'll get new relics, abilities, and powers, and can customise the armour of Shovel Knight. And there will be exclusive challenge stages.
If you've got a Wii U, the amiibo will also unlock a two player co-op mode. No such luck on 3DS, I'm afraid.
You can pre-order the amiibo right now on GAME but they overcharge for them and they never sent me my Little Mac amiibo and I'm still angry so I wouldn't bother to be honest.
