There’s A Shovel Knight Amiibo Coming

Looks like that Spanish retailer listing was correct as today UK retailer GAME has confirmed that there will be a Shovel Knight amiibo figure. The actual figure will work across a number of games including future Nintendo titles from Yacht Club Games. The amiibo is going to be available for pre-order tomorrow and will be released on November 27th.

      1. And this relates to my comment how? I actually like the link picture better than the actual Amiibo.

        So : Z to your -_-.

  1. NNNNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! They are just using you Nintendo :(

    1. Still doesn’t mean SK is out of the running for Smash. Amiibo’s that are non-Smash can still be used for Smash like the Mario Party & Yarn Yoshi Amiibo’s.

  2. I think that right there is the Shovel Knight Smash Bros DLC confirmation and I can’t wait to cop that amiibo. Welcome to Smash playa and now I’m hoping for a Shantae confirmation

    1. I don’t see how it’s a confirmation, if anything it decofirms him as it’s using the shovel knight logo, not smash.

          1. I don’t give a good goddamn what logo is on that package they made an amiibo for him and it’s funny how all of a sudden it won’t be availble until November……..you know a month after Smash Ballots are closed. So yeah I think he’s gonna be in Smash and that’s final

            1. Yes the logo IS important. It just gave us the info that it’s not confirmed…Yet.
              Though since last tweet from Yatch Club said that it would be cool if SK is Smash was a thing. (But then, they could be lying to hide it BUT that doesn’t mean they are lying)

            2. Hey, SHUT UP! Banjo & Kazooie deserve that spot a LOT more than some stupid knight who uses a shovel instead of a sword! They’re classics, unlike this stupid knight. Heck, Meta Knight can draw circles around this guy, you stupid dumb jerk. By the way, I have a Youtube account, please watch my Smash replays. So anyway, Falco and Mewtwo’s amiibo figures will also be in November as will the Mii Fighter’s amiibo. So shut up and deal with it, jerk. Bye.

            3. Shut up! Shantae has a higher chance. She’s more popular, has been on Nintendo consoles since the GBC, she has a wider move pool than that stupid thinking a shovel is a sword knight and SHE IS A GIRL! We need more females anyway. We’ll wait till tomorrow. Besides Shantae along with Banjo & Kazooie are better choices than him. So again, SHUT UP AND DEAL WITH IT JERK! Thank you.

            4. Man you are deluded, Shovel knight getting an amiibo does not confirm him as a smash character and it does not deconfirm him as well, but he is not confirmed and it is not a fact, get it through your head

              1. Let’s all agree that, whether he in or not he’ll still will have a amiibo so just be glad that this might be the first third party game that having his own amiibo!

              2. i still think that shadow should be in smash. It is quite easy to differentiate hime from sonic, e.g give him his ranged ‘chaos attacks’ or melee ones perhaps, and make his smash, chaos control, different from the trophy one, and different from the slow down time item. but then again… he doesnt have to be in ssb4 unless he wins the fighter ballot. Nintendo should atleast include 2 characters from each franchise in ssb4 in the game.

      1. Lewd at the stupidity in this video. You game on Nintendo consoles => You are not a hardcore gamer. And he said that he plays on 360, PS3 and PC respectively. It should be illegal to be THAT dumb. You can’t be hardcore if you touch a Nintendo console… Is he really that hypocrite? And you calling him faggot makes you one of those many overly stupid kids that should focus on kindergarten instead of being on the internet.

      2. Do you not read? Do you not know the definition of failure or exposure? You seem to ramble on and on about this guy but you seem to be using a definition that is exclusive to your vocabulary. I really hope that you’re just kidding with this video because, I swear, your stupidity can’t be this bad, can it?

    1. IKR? FUCK. I’m actually going to want this one, and the scalpers are going to ram us again. Goddamnit Nintendo. Make more than 10 this time!! D:<

  3. Hey MyNintendoNews, could you not spread false news around? Nowhere has it been 100% confirmed, but just because it happened, you automatically assume its right. Nothing has been confirmed about this, so you should edit it.

    1. Bruh, it was confirmed by a major gaming retailer in Europe and we have an official picture. It’s pretty much confirmed.

      1. But it has not been 100% confirmed. And theyre saying it has. Which it has not. It is 100% confirmed when it has been announced by Yacht Club Games and/or Nintendo themselves.

        1. I don’t understand why you’re so resistant to accepting shovel knight is getting an amiibo. It would be really really stupid and horribly catostrophic for a major retailer to annouce they’re taking pre orders for an item that doesn’t exist. It’s essentially confirmed.

        2. Nintendo officially confirmed this a few hours ago. Check every gaming news site and they’ll have an article on it.

    1. Eww no, Smash is a battleground for legends to collide, not for the flavor of the month to promote itself.

        1. As bad as I want them, Banjo and Kazooie would essentially be a Duck Hunt Duo clone and Nintendo would surely have to grease Microsoft’s palms but I do agree about them being deserving of a spot

          1. HOW DARK YOU! THEY WOULD NOT BE CLONES YOU IDIOT! THEY WOULD USE THEIR EGG FIRING MOVE, BEAK BUSTER, BEAK BARGE, BILL DRILL, FLAP FLIP JUMP AND THE WONDERING AS THEIR FINAL SMASH! THEY ARE ICONIC AND MORE LEGENDARY THAT THAT STUPID KNIGHT WHO USES A SHOVEL LIKE A SWORD! THEY’RE MORE DESERVING OF THE SPOT! DON’T EVER COMPARE THEM TO THAT TROLLING DOG AND DUCK DUO! CLONES MY FOOT! GO WATCH SOME BANJO-KAZOOIE GAVE PLAYERSTAION AND SEE WHAT I MEAN STUPID!

              1. And besides, they were going to be in the very first Smash Bros. along side Rare’s iteration of James Bond. No I’m trolling, Did You Know Gaming has a video of it on Youtube.

                1. That was proven wrong by Source Gaming, there is no evidence suggesting Banjo&Kazooie OR James Bond were going to be in the game.

                  It was just a rumor, that did you know gaming believed.

                  1. WHY ALL THE HATE ON BANJO & KAZOOIE?! THEY’RE MORE LEGENDARY THAN SHOVEL BLIGHT! THEY’RE ALSO OLD FRIENDS OF MARIO’S OR HAVE YOU IDIOTS FORGOTTEN IT?! JUST WATCH, THEY’LL MAKE IT! KRYSTAL, K. ROOL, SHANTAE AND WOLF RIGHT BEHIND THEM! BANJO-KAZOOIE HATING JERKS!

        1. They’re an actual nintendo rep that has significance as being one of the first new nintendo ips in a long time.

        1. Exactly, I doubt a character associated with casual games would automatically be considered a Nintendo legend. Might as well say the Miis are also legends while w’re at it.

        2. Wii Fit was a huge seller and helped drive the success of the original Wii (not sure about WiiU) so yes, while not expected she/he does have alot of significance to Nintendo that alot of people do not acknowledge.

      1. “Smash is a battleground for legends to collide”
        Ness in 64
        Roy in Melee
        Pit in Brawl
        Dark Pit and arguably the Miis and Wii Fit Trainer in 4. And Lucina AND Robin.

    1. That was a good one. XD No offense to Shit-Shovel Knight (still a good game) but he’s not even a retro legacy or memorable one that existed over the years. Shantae deserves a spot more so than an 8-bit Zelda Phantom Knight knockoff with a shovel…

  4. I see people are still delusional enough to think he has any business being in Smash for having a plastic figure.

  5. It seems that Shovel Knight has not gotten the majority of the votes on the Smash Ballot, would Masahiro Sakurai really give us a character that is not in the majority?

    1. And I only say this because most people are complaining, so it appears to me that Shovel Knight is in the minority, but vs. what is another good question.

    2. I think people need to understand that the Smash Poll overall is just for Sakurai and co. To figure out what characters are heavily requested. The winner may not even be implemented into the game.

      1. Then what would be the point? That would be like if a film studio announced a new Batman film but the movie that premiered was Captain America (for lack of a better analogy, personally I hate how many superhero movies there are right now).

    3. Obviously. Imagine if the winner was some retarded choice like Shrek. Would you include it instead of a more fitting second choice?

      This is something people need to realize about the ballot: it’s not an election. The winner of the ballot might not get selected for a lot of reasons (for being third-party, for being difficult to implement, to save him or her for Smash 5…)

        1. So? Doesn’t mean they’re going to implement whomever gets the most votes. Let’s take Banjo. Let’s assume they’re interested in developing him and go to Microsoft to negotiate the conditions. Then, Microsoft asks for something Nintendo is not happy with and negotiations go nowhere. Wouldn’t you take the easier route and pick a different character?

  6. so I guess we also have a shovel knight custom now?
    I can see Sakurai doing that seriously, after KKR…

    1. Nope, I’m happy too, even if he doesn’t get to Smash, I’ll buy it.
      And for those who are claiming that he don’t deserve his spot, shut up! You look like morons, just because the character you like didn’t get the spot doesn’t mean others don’t deserve it. I don’t like Ryu, still now is in and there are others characters that “deserve” to be in before Ryu too, and no one complained.

  7. Nintendo is stupid, if this overrated game were exclusive it would be well deserved, but it isn’t so they don’t also i don’t want that fucker in SSB or MM fuck…

  8. “Banjo-Kazooie would be a clone of Duck Hunt.”

    Right, because a breegull partnered with a bear wearing shorts and a backpack is the exact same thing as a duck partnered with a dog using a zapper.
    Yeah, that makes sense.

    1. I didn’t mean that by the character makeup I meant that by the animations and the way the two characters work together. Of course a dog and a duck isn’t the same as a bear and a breegull and I know they all would have different abilities from each other but like I said the animations would essentially be the same because of how the characters have to work together. You clearly misunderstood me

  9. The amiibos are never going to stop. But my money is. I’m gonna have to eventually nip this in the bud. I’m not going to have anywhere to store all of these amiibos. My bedroom already looks like a storage. And I already have a ton of stuff in our REAL storage. I’m getting ran out of my own house. Well, not MY house, but it’s where I live.
