In its young history, Yacht Club Games has only made one game thus far. The studio has continued to work on Shovel Knight since its release in 2014 with a bunch of brand new content.

Shovel Knight still has some new things to offer this year, but it sounds like Yacht Club Games is starting to think about moving on. In a tweet published on the developer’s page, it states that the team hopes “to start work on a new project in 2017”.


Two more amiibo are joining the Zelda: Breath of the Wild amiibo line. Zelda herself will be getting a new figure, as well as one for the Bokoblin enemy type. We’ve posted the packaging for both above.

Update: Sold out on Amazon, but still up on Best Buy. They’re also now up on Amazon France.

Amazon is now taking pre-orders for the new Zelda: Breath of the Wild amiibo. Get them here.

The two versions of Link, Zelda, and Bokoblin are there. However, the Guardian one is currently unable to be pre-ordered. We’ll let you know when that changes.

Note that the 20% Prime discount doesn’t apply at the moment. However, if you’re a member of the service, it should be discounted before release.

This information comes from Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime, who shared the following with GameSpot…

“Oh, so earlier today I got asked about Mother 3; maybe you can ask me about Metroid. Look, again, I am proud as an executive with Nintendo to say that we look at all of the boards and all of the comments and we really have a good understanding of what our consumers want. And believe me, we take that to heart as we work to create content. So I have nothing to announce–here. But we are aware that there are some key IP that consumers just can’t wait for the next true installment in that franchise’s legacy. Suffice it to say, we’re aware of it, and talk to me in a year and let’s look back and see what’s happened.”

Reggie also stressed the importance of having “a regular cadence of critical launches to drive the install base and keep the consumer base engaged.” With Switch, Nintendo is looking to avoid “large gaps” between releases.
