Yacht Club Games has at last confirmed the existence of a gold Shovel Knight amiibo. After a GameStop leak earlier this week, the publisher and developer has now made an official announcement over on its website.

This particular version of Shovel Knight is sporting arguably the greatest armour in the game: the Ornate Plate. If you scan it, you'll gain access to the same unlocks as the standard Shovel Knight amiibo:

Custom Knight – A crazy fun way to play Shovel of Hope! Level up by collecting gold and unlock new moves, costumes, and more! Co-op challenge stages in Shovel of Hope, Baron Set costume for Shovel Knight Showdown, Fairy of Shovelry in any Shovel Knight game

This amiibo is priced at $15.99 USD and can be pre-ordered from Best Buy or GameStop. It will be released this December alongside the Treasure Trove amiibo 3-pack and is also expected to be made available outside of America. More store listings will come online soon. For additional information, read the full Q&A.
