Nintendo confirms Shovel Knight amiibo

At its pre-PAX Nindies at Night event, Nintendo confirmed the long-rumored Shovel Knight amiibo.

For the Wii U version of Shovel Kinght, the amiibo will unlock an exclusive co-op mode, making it the only version of the game that supports two players for the game’s entirety. On Wii U and 3DS, the amiibo will unlock exclusive challenge modes not available on other platforms as well as customization options (changing your Shovel Knight’s look and color) that can be saved to the amiibo.

Beyond that, the figure will work with the Wii U and 3DS versions of Shovel Knight as well as all future Yacht Club-developed games on Nintendo platforms. Nintendo confirmed that it will not work with first-party games at this time, but the feature is under consideration.
