Walmart breaks street dates on Link, Ivysaur, Squirtle, and Snake amiibo

What's the deal, Walmart?!

Boy, oh boy...Walmart just doesn't seem to care about street dates lately! They've always been a bit iffy on keeping things locked up until launch date, but they really seem to have given up in recent weeks. Not only are they selling the Switch Lite early at some locations, they're also selling the Link's Awakening Link, Ivysaur, Squirtle, and Snake amiibo! Head to your local Walmart and you might be lucky enough to snag these early!

Yacht Club shares official details on the Shovel Knight Gold Edition amiibo

Digging up some gold

We've been reporting on rumors of a gold Shovel Knight amiibo for so long now that it's hard to believe it's finally confirmed, yet here we are! The listing went live on GameStop's website earlier this week, and now Yacht Club has shared an official rundown on the amiibo and what it does. Check out full details below.

Flashy! Decorative! Useful! You may have heard whispers of such a treasure. A beshoveled knight that shines like gold! Today we’re happy to finally confirm the legends are true! Let’s unveil one more surprise for Shovel Knight amiibo!

Shovel Knight Gold Edition amiibo

In addition to the original true blue Shovel Knight and the upcoming Plague Knight, Specter Knight, and King Knight — you can now upgrade your collection with a Shovel Knight sporting what is objectively the greatest armor in the game: the Ornate Plate! What a magnificent sight!

Pre-Order now!


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!


When does it come out?

The Shovel Knight Gold Edition amiibo will release in December! Along with the Treasure Trove amiibo 3-pack, Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove physical release, and the giant King of Cards/Showdown update! It’s going to be a big month for Shovel Knight!

Can I scan the Gold Edition amiibo through the box, like the original Shovel Knight amiibo?

No, due to requirements in packaging it is not possible to scan the amiibo contained within the Shovel Knight Gold Edition without first removing it from its container.

Will the Treasure Trove amiibo work on Switch? 3DS? Wii U?

Support for the Gold amiibo will be added to Wii U, 3DS, and Switch versions of Shovel Knight with the arrival of King of Cards and Showdown in December.

Do I need the amiibo to play co-op in Shovel of Hope?

No, co-op is available from the start on all console and PC versions of the game. No amiibo necessary. We recommend trying out a double Custom Knight co-op run if you ever get the chance!

Will you ever "reprint" the original Shovel Knight amiibo?

Since it has the same in-game features, you can effectively consider this Gold Edition as a kind of reprint of the original!

Is this a limited item?

This is not an intentionally limited item. We hope everyone who is interested can find it!

Is this a US exclusive?

No. We expect it to have similar availability as the original Shovel Knight amiibo. More store listings will come online soon!

Will it be available at an online or retail store near me?

We’d recommend contacting your nearby store to ask them!

Is it really made of gold?!

Much like King Knight’s crown, Shovel Knight Gold Edition amiibo is not made of gold.
