UK retailer GAME just announced a Shovel Knight amiibo

Could he be coming to Smash?

Holy heck, it looks like Shovel Knight is getting an amiibo.

Announced via a tweet made by GAME Brighton, a local branch of the UK’s biggest dedicated gaming retailer, the tweet was promptly deleted but appears to be very official.

Thanks go to NintendoLife for catching the tweet before it was gone.

While the tweet implies that the amiibo will unlock content in Shovel Knight on 3DS and Wii U, understandably we’re now wondering if the character might be coming to Smash Bros. Yacht Club Games recently said they had a “megaton announcement” to share at PAX. Could Shovel Knight in Smash be it?
