PAX West 17: Shovel Knight Getting New Amiibo

By Robert Marrujo:: Love 'em or hate 'em, Nintendo's line of toys-to-life figurines doesn't look like it'll be going anywhere any time soon. That said, it's still a bit surprising to hear that Yacht Club Games' Shovel Knight will be getting an additional three Amiibo when King of Cards launches next year. Nintendo and Yacht Club put out the following video showing off the new toys:

Definitely good for a chuckle or two, though sadly no solid release date is mentioned (we're going out on a limb assuming the new Amiibo will drop with King of Cards). Fans can look forward to adding Plague Knight, Specter Knight, and King Knight to their collection, as well as unlock helper fairies, bonus armor, and more in-game.

That last shot just cracks me up, by the way. The Amiibo will apparently be sold in a triple-pack, but beyond that there's not much else to report, other then that they look freaking awesome. More news on these as it develops. Keep it tuned to Binx.News for more info about PAX West as the festivities continue!
