Yacht Club Games revealed a Shovel Knight amiibo that has special exclusive features for their titles on both Wii U and Nintendo 3Ds offering a brand new co-op mode, challenge stages, and customizable gear.

“Not only do we have a robust slate of indie games launching in the Nintendo eShop, but these games also contain features that can only be found on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS,” said Damon Baker, Nintendo of America’s Senior Marketing Manager of Publisher and Developer Relations. “Creating an amiibo that’s compatible with all current and future Shovel Knight games shows that our strong relationship with independent developers is constantly evolving.”

It was also announced that free DLC is launching in September that gives players the option to play as Plague Knight. Shovel Knight can be purchased from the Nintendo eShop and will be available in packaged retail versions this October. There is not an official release date for the Shovel Knight amiibo.
