Yacht Club Games has announced some new details on the amiibo functionality in Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove and Specter of Torment.
The developers have confirmed that the Shovel Knight amiibo will work in both Treasure Trove and Specter of Torment, allowing you to access Custom Knight and Challenges, as the data will be saved to your amiibo. This will also allow you to transfer your Custom character and levels over to the Nintendo Switch.
Along with this addition, Yacht Club Games has introduced a new character named Madame Meeber, who can summon fairies to join you on your journey. If you speak to her in the Village, Potionarium, or the Tower of Fate and scan your Shovel Knight amiibo, she will summon the Fairy of Shovelry. The fairy can be used with Shovel Knight, Plague Knight, and Specter Knight, and can assist in digging up treasure or helping out in battle.
