A few days ago, a mysterious Golden Shovel Knight amiibo appeared at several retailers in North America without a word from Yacht Club Games. Well, it now appears that the gook folks at YCG are ready to break their silence with a detailed look at the new figure.


According to a post on the official Shovel Knight blog, the golden amiibo will act the same way as the non-golden variety. It appears that no additional functionality will be available.


Scanning the Gold Edition Shovel Knight amiibo will allow you to access all of the same great modes as the original, ground-breaking, 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 makes it a perfect choice if you always wanted to try out these great additions but were never quite able to track down the original Shovel Knight!

For those interested in this golden amiibo, you can expect it to hit shelves the same day as Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove and the Shovel Knight amiibo 3-Pack in December. Pre-orders are live at GameStop and Best Buy.
