Last year, NintendoSoup was the first in the world to break the news on the upcoming release of amiibo Shovel Knight Gold Edition, originally announced for a Q2 2019 release.
It’s been close to three months since we first reported on the amiibo Shovel Knight Gold Edition, and up till this day, Yacht Club Games has decided not to acknowledge its existence. When asked by a Twitter fan whether the amiibo is “a rumor or a real thing”, they simply said the following:
We do not have a product of that kind available. For official product announcements be sure to check out https://t.co/nfoxyGr7Mv

“We do not have a product of that kind available. For official product announcements be sure to check out yachtclubgames.com”
When the report was first published, Yacht Club Games claimed the amiibo listing on NintendoSoup Store and other online retailers were incorrect and they have reached out to the retailers to rectify them. Up till this day, NintendoSoup Store has never received a request to rectify the listing.
NintendoSoup Store also confirmed with the supplier, a Nintendo distributor that has been in business for over 30 years, that the product is real and all orders have been accounted for.
In addition, NintendoSoup reached out to Yacht Club Games back in December to clarify the situation on the amiibo Shovel Knight Gold Edition. The studio never returned a comment.

UPDATE (September 7, 2019): After close to a year, NintendoSoup has finally been proven that we were right all long. Thanks to those who stuck with us!
