Nintendo and Yacht Club Games have announced a Shovel Knight amiibo during their [email protected] event in Seattle.
Featured above, you can view a trailer for the new amiibo created just for the Shovel Knight. Alongside the new amiibo news is the confirmation that the free Plague of Shadows DLC for Shovel Knight is launching for the Wii U in September.
When using the amiibo with Shovel Knight, you can play cooperatively with a friend, and you can level up and customize your own Shovel Knight with relics, enhancements, and abilities. These new abilities can be used in exclusive amiibo challenge levels.
Finally, Yacht Club Games let out a tease in saying the amiibo figure will be supported in “future Shovel Knight games.”
