amiibo Instruction Manual

Have your Shovel Knight amiibo at the ready? Good! Because the big amiibo Update is now live on European Wii U and Nintendo 3DS’s everywhere! Read our Update Guide for more on how to get up-to-date! This newest patch is Version 2.1! Don’t have a Shovel Knight amiibo? If you are in Europe (except for the UK) go to a store right now and get one!

UK Players: Sorry for the amiibo release date delay. Latest we know, the little guy is trying to make his way out of customs! Once we get official clearance, we’ll shout it to everyone! Unfortunately, we have little information on what the hold up is or when the amiibo will be released. We apologize for the mishandled dates, and we hope to get it in everyone’s hands soon!

North American Players: This update will still be releasing on North American systems in North America by January 8th, 2016 to coincide with the release date of the amiibo. For more info and what to expect, check our big amiibo update.
