One of the best indie games to come out in the past year is Shovel Knight. This game has won many awards and it’s about time it got its recognition. And He did. In Amiibo form! The Yacht Club Games character is now the first indie game with his own Amiibo.

Here is the hilariously done announcement video that the people at Yacht Club Games had the video people at Grump Out make.

This slick little figurine will let players customize and level up Shovel Knight in Shovel Knight on the Wii U and 3DS, as well as Co-Op mode for the Wii U. A lot of things are coming to Shovel Knight, including a DLC to play as Plague Knight.

The cartridge version of Shovel Knight is due out in October, the Amiibo has no release date as of yet. Stay Tuned here at Gamer Assault Weekly for when that information drops and all your other gaming needs.
