Yacht Club games Sean Velasco has revealed to Destructiod during PAX Prime that Nintendo won’t be producing the Shovel Knight amiibo. Instead, the third-party figure will be produced at the same factory that produces the Disney Infinity figures. Hopefully it will retain the same quality as other amiibo figures.
“We’re basically licensing the amiibo technology from Nintendo, and they’ve been overseeing it every step of the way,” Velasco said. “From the design, to how the amiibo functions in the game, to making sure that it was all just perfect in every way.”
“But we’re the ones that are dealing with the manufacturing and distribution, we’re the ones that are talking with the toy and sculpture people. Even things like the packaging.”
