In addition to all the cool stuff we’re getting with Shovel Knight’s Specter of Torment expansion, Yacht Club Games revealed a new amiibo functionality that unlocks the Fairy of Shovelry.
Here’s more from Yacht Club Games:
Boopity Boo! Introducing Madame Meeber, summoner of fairies and fun! This affable conjurer can be found in the Village, Potionarium, and even the Tower of Fate! If you speak with her and scan your Shovel Knight amiibo, she will summon a flying friend for you: the Fairy of Shovelry!!
The Fairy of Shovelry will accompany Shovel Knight, Plague Knight, or even Specter Knight on their respective adventures! Whether the little scamp is digging for treasure, trying to battle enemies, or cheering along with your victories, he is guaranteed to be delightful. Don’t worry, he won’t get in your way or mess with your gameplay! But things sure are less lonely with the Fairy of Shovelry around!
Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment releases on March 3, 2017 for Nintendo Switch. The update arrives on Nintendo 3DS and Wii U this April.
