To date the Shovel Knight amiibo is the only one based on a third party indie game, and it was manufactured by Yacht Club Games themselves with the blessing of Nintendo. With Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove introducing Switch players to the collection of Shovel Knight expansions, could we see more amiibo on the way?
In a recent interview with Gadgets 360, the studio's Sean Velasco revealed that they would like to make some more amiibo in the future:
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.
How would you like a Plague Knight, Specter Knight and King Knight amiibo? What functionality would you expect they might unlock in the game? Let us know with a comment below.
