Play-Asia listing says a Shovel Knight gold amiibo is on the way

According to a Play-Asia listing, a gold version of the Shovel Knight amiibo is on the way. They don't have a release date for the amiibo, but they do have a placeholder listing for the release. I have the standard blue Shovel Knight amiibo, but I think I'll have to double-dip for this one!

Thanks to NintendoSoup for the heads up!

Firewatch: The year is 1989. You are a man named Henry who has retreated from your messy life to work as a fire lookout in the Wyoming wilderness. Perched high atop a mountain, it’s your job to look for smoke and keep the wilderness safe. Your supervisor, a woman named Delilah, is your only contact with the world you’ve left behind. When something strange draws you out of your lookout tower and into the world, you’ll explore a wild and unknown environment, facing questions and making choices that can build or destroy the only meaningful relationship you have.
