Update: The Shovel Knight amiibo was available for pre-order at Amazon

Can you dig it?

[Update: All gone! We’ll keep you appraised if Shovel Knight returns to Amazon or Best Buy.]

Recently, I purchased a Silver Mario amiibo just because I wanted to say that I had completed Wave 3. Help me. Anyway, the Shovel Knight amiibo is currently up for pre-order at Amazon, and you should probably jump on that when you get a chance. We haven’t really had to worry about amiibo scarcity for a while, but I’ve got a bad feeling about this one.

If you’re worried about quality, I’ve held the figure in question back at PAX Prime. It’s super neat, and I’m excited to own one regardless of whether I have the game on Wii U/3DS.
