GameStop has seemingly leaked yet another announcement ahead of schedule. If the title wasn't already a dead giveaway, it's a gold Shovel Knight amiibo. Provided you're located in North America, you can walk into your local GameStop right now and pre-order one using the following SKU: 103739. As there are no images just yet, above is a picture of the regular Shovel Knight amiibo.

This listing is exciting stuff, considering a gold Shovel Knight amiibo has been rumoured for some time now. As can been seen below, it has a placeholder date of 31 December 2019.

While we might not be able to pin down a release date just yet, we do at least know the amiibo three-pack featuring Plague Knight, Specter Knight, and King Knight will arrive this December. The exact day this trio will be released is unknown, but it seems like there's a good chance the gold one will be made available alongside this pack.

As for when we can expect a more official confirmation about this gold Shovel Knight amiibo? Well...there's a Nintendo Direct scheduled for 4th September, so it seems like that would be an appropriate time to reveal something like this. Still, it's somewhat surprising we didn't hear about this during last week's Yacht Club presentation.
