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.


More amiibo are set to be released later this week. Get a closer look at Pichu, Isabelle, and Pokemon Trainer below with unboxings.

Amazon Germany has started taking pre-orders for a bunch of amiibo – some of which are not up at other retailers. Dark Samus, Incineroar, Chrom, Simon Belmont, Richter, Snake, Squirtle, and Ivysaur are all now live. The full set can be found here.

In case you’re wondering, these amiibo should ship to other countries. We were able to place an order from the U.S. for example.

moldyclay has returned with an update to the fan-made amiibo compatibility chart. Several games have been added in, which makes sense since it’s been awhile since the last version.

If you’d like to keep up with the amiibo compatibility as there are quite a lot of games and figures involved at this point, the chart (actually, there are technically multiple charts this time) will come in handy. You can find a breakdown for Switch, 3DS, and Wii U specifically below.


Amazon has opened pre-orders for the Pichu, Pokemon Trainer, and Isabelle amiibo. All three can be found here.
