Do you remember the early days of amiibo? Nintendo first announced the merchandise line during its E3 2014 video presentation and had only confirmed plans for Super Smash Bros. at the time. The launch would take place in November, and things quickly took a crazy turn after the figures became scarce. amiibo were selling for ridiculous amounts on eBay and people camped out at stores for a chance to obtain the new collectibles.

Here we are nearly five years later, and the situation is much different. Nintendo is still continuing with amiibo, though perhaps not quite as much as it did even a couple of years ago. Smash Bros. is going strong, but Zelda: Link’s Awakening was the only other Nintendo game in 2019 to be accompanied by a new figure.

Since the fifth anniversary of amiibo is almost here, how is everyone feeling about it today? Are you trying to collect every Smash Bros. figure, or have you given up on that quest? Do you view amiibo favorably or unfavorably? Let us know in the comments below.

Gaming Boulevard has offered a closer look at the newest round of amiibo. Link (from Zelda: Link’s Awakening), Snake, Ivysaur, and Squirtle are all unboxed in the video below.

Yacht Club Games has officially announced the Shovel Knight Gold Edition amiibo. Like everything else Shovel Knight-related, it is planned for December.

Here’s what you can expect from the amiibo:

Update (9/5): Best Buy has now opened pre-orders here.


Original (9/4): GameStop has added in an online listing for the brand new gold Shovel Knight amiibo. Thanks to that, we finally have a look at the figure. See the first image of it above.

You can pre-order the gold Shovel Knight amiibo on GameStop’s website here.

Rumblings of a new gold Shovel Knight amiibo date back to last year. However, Yacht Club Games has yet to say anything about such a figure, and it seemed unlikely to happen at this point. Yet within the past couple of days, fans have noticed that the mystery amiibo has been available to pre-order at GameStop.

The gold Shovel Knight amiibo actually isn’t present on GameStop’s website (at least currently). Having said that, there are numerous reports of consumers being able to reserve it in store. It is officially listed as “Gold Shovel Knight for Switch” and costs $15.99.

There’s still no word on when it could release, and Yacht Club Games still hasn’t made an official announcement. We know that the Shovel Knight series has a new 3-pack dropping in December, but the only news we’ve had about this particular amiibo comes from retailers. Hopefully we’ll have a better understanding about what’s planned soon.
