Super Smash Bros.

For a brief period yesterday, Nintendo listed ye olde Shovel Knight amiibo as being compatible for training in battle in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, which seemed to suggest he is going to be a DLC character in the fighting game.

Yacht Club Games went on to deny that Shovel Knight is coming to Super Smash Bros., stating, "Appreciate the enthusiasm for the idea, but I believe this listing was made in error."
