Yesterday it was announced that Yacht Club Games and Nintendo teamed up to make a Shovel Knight Amiibo. This is the first 3rd party Amiibo that has ever been released and similar to the Skylander Amiibos it will only work with Nintendo consoles (Wii u and 3DS). On Wii U it will unlock Co-op mode so you can now have two people play Shovel Knight together. On both Wii u and 3DS it will unlock exclusive Challenge stages and the ability to customize your gear. Yacht Club Games has said that they plan to continue support of this Amiibo in future Yacht Club Games and Nintendo products. A release date has not been announced yet for the US but it will be released on November 27th in Europe.
