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.
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.
@kalmarc3 Afraid not. If it was, we would be shouting it from the rooftops! Maybe one day…

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.
