Yacht Club collaborates with Nintendo on a Shovel Knight amiibo. Already fans are suggesting that Nintendo will sellout on release. However, Yacht Club will produce and sell the figure on its own, meaning we can’t blame Nintendo this time around for not making enough to go around. The Shovel Knight amiibo will share the same look as the other toys in Nintendo’s ever-growing collection of amiibo. Though Nintendo is not in charge of manufacturing this new Amiibo, they will however promote the Shovel Knight figure along with their other figures.
The Shovel Knight amiibo will unlock exclusive features in the Wii U and 3DS versions of the game, including a co-op mode on Wii U — making it the only version of Shovel Knight with two-player co-op — and an exclusive challenge mode on both platforms. Spokes person from Yacht Games, Baker also said, “There will be more Yacht Club and Shovel Knight content coming to Nintendo platforms in the future,” and the amiibo will be compatible with all future Yacht Club titles on Nintendo systems.
