There have been rumors about new characters getting amiibos or becoming Smash Bros characters like Professor Layton and Rayman but these have proven false.
Earlier this week, Shovel Knight was the latest game rumored to get an amiibo and a spot on Super Smash Bros 3DS/Wii U. Unlike before, this seems to be the real deal as a tweet from GAME Brighton showed before it swiftly got deleted but Nintendo Life saved the tweet before it’s erasure.
The tweet image states Shovel Knight will be getting it’s own amiibo in Europe in October and November for North America. The image also states that the new amiibo will provide exclusive content for select games on Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, some of which will be compatible for future titles that Yacht Club Games develops for Nintendo’s platforms.
