Yacht Club Games are interested in making more Shovel Knight amiibo
Posted on 6 days ago by Matt(@OnePunchMaz) in General Nintendo, News | 4 Comments | 0 Likes
Yacht Club Games had the honor of making the first ever third party amiibo with Shovel Knight – and it sounds like they’d be up for making some more. In an interview with Gadgets 360, Yacht Club Games director Sean Velasco had the following to say about the possibility of more amiibo from them:
“As far as more amiibo go… man, wouldn’t it be cool to see amiibo of Plague Knight, Specter Knight, and King Knight!? That would be amazing. Maybe some day.”
Of course, this might just be wishful thinking on Velasco’s part and he might not be teasing anything specific, but given how successful Shovel Knight has been and Yacht Club Games’ close relationship with Nintendo, it’s certainly not impossible.

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!”

Yacht Club may consider physical version of Shovel Knight for Switch after finishing King Knight’s campaign
Posted on 3 weeks ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop | 10 Comments | 0 Likes
Shovel Knight is available physically on Wii U and 3DS. On Switch though, the game will only be sold on the eShop – at least at launch.
Yacht Club Games isn’t against a physical version of Shovel Knight for Switch. Actually, the studio told one fan on Twitter that it might be considered after work wraps up on King Knight’s campaign.
The tweet is as follows:
@ChrisArrowood98 Digital only at this time. We might try for a physical release once King Knight's campaign is complete.

Yacht Club Games publishes more details about Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove and Specter of Torment
Posted on 4 weeks ago by Fernando in 3DS, News, Switch eShop, Wii U | 6 Comments | 0 Likes
After the last press release from Nintendo detailing the games that will be available on Switch’s eShop for launch date, Yacht Club Games has made its own official statement about the release of Shovel Knight in the new console.
They have confirmed that both versions (Treasure Trove and Specter of Torment) will indeed appear on March 3rd in Europe and North America. Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove will cost $/€24.99, while Specter of Torment as a stand-alone game will cost $/€9.99.
Treasure Trove includes the complete game, but in the near future the other two stand-alone adventures, Shovel of Hope and Plague of Shadows, will be able to buy separately. As for the rest of platforms, the new content for Shovel Knight will be ready in April.
Additionally, today there will be a lead-up sale to buy Shovel Knight 33% off, starting February 23rd and ending March 2nd. This is the last chance to get the game at a low price, since the Treasure Trove pack will cost more than the base game did until now.
