Shovel Knight: amiibo compatibility list

Animal Crossing- amiibo Festival1 (2)

2014's indie champion, Shovel Knight, is getting his very own amiibo and it's going to be a game changer for the platform you already dig.

Though many indies have tried to capture that 8-bit graphic nostalgia vibe, none have succeeded quite like Shovel Knight. A classic 2-D side-scroller at its core, Shovel Knight features a vast array of weapons and upgrades, challenging and exciting boss battles and an emotionally engaging story supporting the adventure.

You play as the eponymous Shovel Knight, an adventurer whose travelling companion, Shield Knight was possessed by a cursed amulet in the Tower of Fate. Constantly haunted by recurring dreams of Shield Knight's demise, our heartbroken champion hangs up his shovel and secludes himself from the rest of the world. During this time, the Enchantress and her entourage (The Order of No Quarter) break the Tower of Fate's seal, releasing an army of evil into the world. Shovel Knight returns to the fray in hopes of saving his beloved Shield Knight and sealing the Tower once and for all.

Shovel Knight uses his shovel to fight, dig and pogo across the land, eventually facing off against a formidable knight in each region.

How to use amiibo in Shovel Knight
  • Multiplayer, finally!

Though we all enjoyed our time alone as Shovel Knight, one glaring omission from the original game was a multiplayer mode. Shovel Knight's side-scrolling, loot-heavy adventure is the perfect fit for a pair of competitive gamers. Well, that's exactly what we're getting with amiibo compatibility. Players can scan their amiibo into a friend's game to tackle SK's quest together.

  • Customise your knight

Players will be able to customise their own knight by outfitting it with new relic, powers, abilities and unique cosmetic options. Your amiibo will store stats, experience and customisations that you can use across both the 3DS and Wii U versions.

  • New challenge stages

Your Shovel Knight amiibo will give you access to never-seen-before challenge stages that utilise the relics and abilities that are unlocked with the amiibo.
