Nintendo isn't producing the Shovel Knight amiibo (updated with video interview)

0

Distribution also up to Yacht Club

At PAX Prime 2015, Yacht Club games "Captain" Sean Velasco told Destructoid that Nintendo isn't actually making the Shovel Knight amiibo. The figure's production and distribution was left in the hands of Yacht Club, which is producing it in the same factory as Disney Infinity figures.

"We're basically licensing the amiibo technology from Nintendo, and they've been overseeing it every step of the way," Velasco said. "From the design, to how the amiibo functions in the game, to making sure that it was all just perfect in every way."

"But we're the ones that are dealing with the manufacturing and distribution, we're the ones that are talking with the toy and sculpture people. Even things like the packaging."
