The story of the Shovel Knight amiibo has been long and troubled, but with the final release date looming, fans are more eager than ever to get their hands on the collectible figure. The amiibo was briefly up on retailers like Amazon last week, before quickly selling out.
However, due to comments from a Yacht Club Games member on a related reddit post, it seems that the entire pre-order window was a fluke, and that fans should not be worried about the figure’s stock.
Hopefully I can clarify things a little! The Best Buy/Amazon preorders were not taken down due to stock issues, but because they should not have been listed for preorder in the first place!
Stock should (hopefully!) be plentiful at release, and refresh shipments will continue arriving frequently.
The Shovel Knight amiibo is due for a January 8 U.S. release.
