After a long delay, Yacht Club Games has finally launched the Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove amiibo 3-pack with Plague Knight, King Knight, and Specter Knight! At the time of writing, you can reserve one here on Amazon for $34.99 with a release date slated for December 31st. That might be a placeholder date, but this set is a guaranteed sell out, so jump on it while you can. You won't be charged until it ships.
Yacht Club Games has revealed that the amiibo will unlock several items on the Nintendo Switch, 3DS, or Wii U. This includes Boomtech Plague Knight, Lich Lord Specter Knight, or Ultimate Supreme King Knight costumes (the costumes can even be worn while battling it out in Showdown). The Plague Knight, King Knight, and Specter Knight amiibo also unlock new platforming challenges within each game's Challenge mode. Finally, the amiibo unlock a fairy friend, which is described as follows:
"Madam Meeber's strange powers ensure each fairy unlocked with amiibo can follow your adventure throughout every game. There are lots of fun and silly fairy interactions to see!"
The news comes hot on the heels of the announcement of a new Shovel Knight game called Shovel Knight Dig. Furthermore, Shovel Knight: King of Cards, Shovel Knight Showdown, and the physical edition of Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove are also slated for a December release.
