Shovel Knight amiibo adding new functionality to unlock Fairy of Shovelry

Posted on March 1, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in 3DS, News, Switch eShop, Wii U

Today, Yacht Club Games introduced new amiibo functionality coming to Shovel Knight with the game’s new Specter of Torment update.

Using the figure, players can unlock the Fairy of Shovelry. Speak to Madame Meeber in the Village, Potionarium, and Tower of Fate and scan the amiibo to do so.

As for what the fairy does, Yacht Club says:

“The Fairy of Shovelry will accompany Shovel Knight, Plague Knight, or even Specter Knight on their respective adventures! Whether the little scamp is digging for treasure, trying to battle enemies, or cheering along with your victories, he is guaranteed to be delightful. Don’t worry, he won’t get in your way or mess with your gameplay! But things sure are less lonely with the Fairy of Shovelry around!”

    Just what I wanted. A useless fairy.

      You are no fun. I guess they should have done nothing.

      I think it’s just the chest piece like Shovel Knight.

    Cue the Navi comments!

    This feels like an added bonus since the Shovel Knight amiibo is losing some of its exclusive content like multiplayer, which will be available for other systems.

    It would’ve been cool if you could play through Super Mario Bros World 1-1 or something instead.
