Nintendo and Yacht Club Games have shown off a pack of three amiibo figures, King Knight, Plague Knight and Specter Knight. The three amiibo will each unlock different functions in Yacht Club’s upcoming game, Shovel Knight: King of Cards for the Nintendo Switch, Nintendo 3DS, and even Wii U.
Shovel Knight: King of Cards: Shovel Knight: King of Cards is the last campaign in the Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove saga and is sure to become the crown jewel of the series.

By tapping three new amiibo figures* based on King Knight, Plague Knight and Specter Knight while playing Shovel Knight, players can unlock exclusive armor sets, new challenge stages and the ability to summon fairy companions to accompany players on quests. Shovel Knight: King of Cards launches on Nintendo Switch in early 2018. The launch date for the new amiibo will be announced in the future. The reveal video for the amiibo can be viewed here.
