Amazon has a product page up for Shovel Knight. The figure will be released January 8, cost $12.99, and be compatible with both the Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions of Shovel Knight. Best Buy has a product page up, but the figure is sold out.


Lucas is the next Super Smash Bros. amiibo to be released. He’ll be out on January 22. He’s also $12.99 at Best Buy and compatible with the Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions of Super Smash Bros. He will also add an additional costume to Super Mario Maker.


Lucas shares his January 22 release date with four more Animal Crossing amiibo. Blathers, Celeste, Kicks, and Resetti. They act as playable characters in Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival and design clients in Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer. They also add costumes to Super Mario Maker.


The next series of Animal Crossing amiibo trading cards will also be released on January 22. However, no pre-order listings have appeared for the cards, which work with Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival and Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, yet.
