Popular US retailer Target is currently listing the highly sought after Shovel Knight amiibo with a January 8th release date. The first third-party amiibo has yet to receive a release date in the United States, but it is arriving in Europe on November 27th. Retailers often put up placeholder dates, but January 8th sounds fairly specific. I guess we shall have to wait and see!
Thanks, Josh N
I wantss it.
He looks Too Sweet!!!
Never played Shovel Knight. Doesn’t really interest me. Cool to see that they’re releasing an amiibo who wants it :-)
You skipped it?
Take it from me, SK is one of those games that, when you play it, you ask yourself “where was this years ago?” It’s as spectacular as it’s claimed to be.
If there’s no preorder I’m taking an all-nighter outside an Ebgames.
Plague Knight was like getting a second game free, or nearly so.
If they were to continue building out all the knights, I’d start paying for them. For Free, we got:
– a new character
– New /remixed music
-new storyline & scripts
– variations in the level designs
– new gameplay mechanics
I hope Yacht Club games doesn’t need a break…they should milk this quality cow for all it’s worth. Absolute masterpiece, especially for the older, nostalgic crowd.
I’ll buy this Amiibo from a scalper if I have to, or make a deal with the devil, either way, same thing anyway. XD
||Nintendo should join the Master Race and leave old ways behind……
King Knight and Specter Knight should also be free, along with an eventual Genderswap mode. That’s just what was mentioned in the kickstarter though, they could eventually branch out with paid DLC of the rest of the Order, but if development time takes as long with the next batches as it did with Plague Knight, it’s more likely we’ll a see a sequel instead of DLC past the free kickstarter stuff.
I hope they branch out with the rest of the quarter. I would LOVE to see Tinker Knight playable.
Personally, I would enjoy seeing Specter Knight have his own mode- I can imagine his being built around stealth and deception.
I wonder if there’s going to a bundle when the physical version of Shovel Knight releases on Wii U? Like, one that comes with the amiibo? I hope so. Because I wanted to buy the game AND the amiibo.
