Shovel Knight had the honor of being the first major third party amiibo several years back, and it added in a great amount of content as well. Since then, it’s received some cool use in other games—like Azure Striker Gunvolt—and had a little more functionality added in, like the amiibo fairy. Still, Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove will soon add its fourth campaign, so Yacht Club Games saw fit to give all the playable characters an amiibo figure.
A three pack was just announced which will include Plague Knight, Specter Knight, and King Knight amiibo. As for what they do, each one unlocks cosmetic armor for the character—which can be applied to any armor set in the game—and will also unlock exclusive challenge stages and additional “helper” fairies. There’s no word on when they’ll be available, but hopefully Yacht Club will have more news on that soon. In the meantime, check out the, uh, tempting trailer for the amiibo below:
