Hmmm...

Sorry if fake, did a quick search for that amiibo to no avail.

Edit: Deleted, but other retailers also posted it http://www.4u2play.de/trendartikel/amiibo/zubehoer/amiibo-shovel-knight/425662

This has to be true now right? After everything else that has popped up surrounding this?

Edit: oh wait. This isn't on their website. Its just something they posted to twitter. In that case i'm going to take it with a pinch of salt.

I still don't know..

Even if they DO release it, not sure he would be in Smash. It would probably be released alongside the retail version of Shovel Knight and used as a selling point there.

Yacht Club getting real cozy with Nintendo.

Will put him right on the spot next to Pac-Man, Mega Man, Sonic, and Mario.

This looks legit, but I'm kind of confused. So is it also an amiibo if it is a character that is not featured in a by Nintendo developed product? What is the definition of an amiibo?

Woah snap! That's awesome! I hope more indie titles get with Nintendo for Amiibo in the future, because I would buy pretty much all of them forever.

Reaaaaaally hope this means the SSB rumor is also true.

That is a new picture, no?!

Yeah. That's why I posted this. I think someone at GAME posted this early.

It's an amiibo if it's part of the amiibo brand, which this seems to be.

"Nintendo products that Yacht Club Games will create in the future" strikes me as very interesting, if this is real.


However... the box is pretty clearly photoshopped. That's in itself not unreasonable; it could easily be work-in-progress or placeholder. But it does raise an interesting question: Why not simply show an image of the Amiibo, not the Amiibo in a box? The box isn't of interest to a potential purchaser, after all.

Is it a model with an NFC chip in it made by Nintendo to separate thousands of people from their cash while providing no real benefit other than sort of looking nice and maybe unlocking some small piece of content because everybody baulks at standard non-physical DLC but this way is absolutely fine?

Then it's an amiibo.

Yacht Club getting real cozy with Nintendo.

So cozy that their game has been released for so many platforms that you can be pretty sure that one day it'll be available to download to your Texas Instruments calculator from 1984.
