The Shovel Knight Amiibo will be shovelling its way across terrestrial boundaries and onto store shelves in Europe on December 11 2015, while North American Amiibo connoisseurs will have to wait until after the New Year. It will be available January 11 2016. The delay is said to have been due to “production difficulties” regarding shipping large amounts of the collectible before the holiday season. The blogpost from Yacht Club Games, by way of Neogaf, provided this accompanying trailer:
For those of you that think Amiibo are soulless pieces of plastic, that offer little in terms of in-game content, Yacht Club Games has certainly got you covered on this one. The Shovel Knight Amiibo will include multiple new customisation options for your knight, added challenge modes, and cooperative multiplayer, exclusive to Wii U.
