Shovel Knight amiibo launches Jan 8. at major retailers

The first amiibo of the year to launch is Shovel Knight on January 8 at major retailers.

Presented by Yacht Club Games, this Shovel Knight amiibo would be compatible in all versions of Shovel Knight, including the 3DS and Wii U version with future products to support compatibility. Shovel Knight amiibo allows for co-op play on the Wii U, a Custom Knight feature and new challenge stages.

Shovel Knight amiibo, previously announced later this summer, has already been released early December in Europe. As to why the Shovel Knight amiibo is being released earlier in Europe, “production difficulties forced us to choose between rushing to ship a tiny, insufficient number of amiibo units before Christmas, or ship a good healthy supply of stock to North America just after Christmas. We’ve received hundreds of emails bemoaning the difficulty in finding some of your favorite amiibo, racing for a pre-order window, issues with scalpers, having trouble unlocking the new features you want to play; so, we made the decision to launch the amiibo in January so there would be enough units available. Hopefully, this later date will make buying a Shovel Knight amiibo easy and fair for everyone. So just be sure to save up that Christmas money for the new year!”

This is the first amiibo produced for a third party game, much less an Indie game. For more details on this amiibo, check out the Yacht Club Games’ preview.
