Residents of the United Kingdom that have been bitten by the Amiibo bug now have a release date for the Shovel Knight variant.
The new launch date for the figurine is January 8th. Yacht Club Games revealed as much via Twitter earlier, citing customs as the holdup:
If you ordered a Shovel Knight amiibo in the UK: SK has finally cleared the checkpoint known as customs. The new release date is January 8th

Once you get Shovel Knight you can use him to unlock a cool helper in his game.
