Shovel Knight Amiibo Leaked by UK Retailer GAME, Available to Pre-Order in Germany

A little earlier today, the Brighton branch of UK retailer GAME posted an image to Twitter announcing that the Shovel Knight amiibo will be available to pre-order from tomorrow, August 28th.

It’s a little odd that one branch of the retailer would decide to tweet out the news, but it’s not alone. German outlet 4U2Play has actually got the Shovel Knight amiibo available to pre-order, along with a release date of October 2nd attached, a few days different to the UK release date stated by GAME.

We’ve actually pre-ordered the item from 4U2Play and, low and behold, it went through just fine. However, whether the October 2nd release date is still on the cards is yet to be seen.


Prepare for an incoming announcement from Nintendo, then, yeah?

Is your wallet already screaming in anticipation, or have you and the kids gotten over the amiibo craze? Let us know down in the comments.

[Update] GAME has since deleted its tweet. So, confirmed, yeah? Here’s the original tweet:
