UPDATE: Yacht Club Games has confirmed this amiibo is the real deal! You can check out more info on their site.

UPDATE 2: The Shovel Knight amiibo is now also up for pre-order on Amazon UK.

Shovel Knight amiibo - GAME

Original post below.

Last week, an image of a Shovel Knight amiibo circulated the Internet. Before anyone had a chance to get their hopes up, Yacht Club Games refuted the rumors via Twitter. That’s seemed to be the end of it.

That is, until today. UK game retailer GAME had tweeted an image (above) of a Shovel Knight amiibo with a release date. The tweet has since been deleted. While everyone was debating whether this was fake or a real leak of a future product, a Shovel Knight amiibo has been listed as available for pre-order on GAME’s website, as well as on 4u2play.

So, what do you think? Is this for real? Or have the retailers jumped the gun? How much do you want a Shovel Knight amiibo? Let us know in the comments below.

    Oh man, if this is real we’re looking at what will be the single, most valuable, amiibo, period. $400 on amazon! Think of all the commotion! All the fans rabbid fans, not just of amiibo, but of shovel knight across all platforms looking for something physical to display in their collection. Personally, I think this is the single most overrated retrostyle game and doesn’t hold a candle to shantae or cave story or extreme exorcism, but whatever.
