Shovel Knight May be Coming to Super Smash Bros. and Becoming an Amiibo

By   /   Aug 26, 2015

The Shovel Knight’s popularity is ever growing, and he is starting to be a cult favourite. It looks like if rumours can be believed, he will be coming to Super Smash Bros. and may even be getting his own Amiibo.

The rumour has been reported on NintendoLife, and it is one that has been around a while. The fact that it hasn’t died out though may mean that the claims may actually be true.  With Yacht Club Games’ character becoming something of a cult favourite I’m sure this would be welcome news to his fans.

If it is true that he is to become an Amiibo this will obviously become a fan favourite too, and probably be one of the bestselling of the figures. Obviously as usual he’ll become hard to find and become one of the most collectable, as is what usually seems to happen with the popular figures now.

With Yacht Club Games promising a “Megaton” reveal this week, could this be the big reveal for Super Smash Bros? It seems plausible, and it would be a good way to help publicise the new Plague of Souls DLC that is coming soon.

Obviously, something big is coming to the Wii U, as the wording of the announcement suggests:

“We’ve heard the cries of bringing more exclusive content to Nintendo platforms. It might not be quite what you expect… but keep an eye out for another MEGATON announcement soon!”

Of course, for now this is merely speculation until we get some kind of confirmation. I’m sure Shovel Knight will prove to be a fan favourite if he is added to Super Smash Bros.
