Pre-order the Shovel Knight Amiibo! (UK)


Nobody was sure whether or not the rumours of a Shovel Knight Amiibo were true or not… but it’s certainly hard to deny now that you can pre-order it on Amazon!

This epic addition to your collection can be used with the captivating 8-bit retro game by Yacht Club Games, who licenced the Amiibo technology directly from Nintendo. It’ll be released in the UK on the 27th of November. Click the images below to pre-order them.


Using the Amiibo in game will allow you to play co-op with a friend, plus you’ll be able to level it up to unlock a bunch of new stuff. So what are you waiting for? Get yours before the scalpers get in there!

Are you getting this Amiibo? Would you like to see more third-party Amiibo in production from other game developers? Do you wanna see us play Shovel Knight over on our YouTube channel? Let us know in the comments below!

15 Things That Happen When You Collect Amiibo


1. You say you’re just going to buy one.


2. But you then quickly end up trying to collect ’em all.


3. Even the ones from games you’ve never heard of. From games you’ve never played.


4. Which is difficult when scalpers are involved.


5. And you’ve often even considered importing the rare ones from Japan.


6. But your wallet has suffered the most in the quest for Amiibo.


7. And when it comes to Amiibo, pre-orders aren’t even sacred anymore.


8. If you decide to unbox Amiibo, you’re often left with a slint hint of regret.



9. And you know you’re in deep when you have more Amiibo than friends.


10. But finally getting that Rosalina filled your heart with joy.


11. Until Nintendo announced a mass restock of even the rarest Amiibo…


12. …And they finally restocked all the rare ones, essentially making them all worthless.

14. RIGHT?!


15. Just kidding, I REGRET NOTHING.

Competition time! WIN THREE FREE Amiibo!


The hunt for Amiibo is often long and harsh out there in the wilderness. We’ve had pre-orders cancelled, arrive damaged or just plain never arrive. It’s not that uncommon to see us order a wave from 2-3 different places, just to make sure we get any at all!
