That Shovel Knight Amiibo Is REAL And Will Unlock Plenty Of New Content

We heard rumors about a Shovel Knight amiibo floating around the interwebs, but now Yacht Club Games have officially revealed that Shovel Knight is an amiibo. This makes him the first indie game character to be immortalized in amiibo form, standing alongside Mario, Link and dozens of other beloved characters.

The amiibo will unlock exclusive content for the Wii U and 3DS versions of Shovel Knight, which includes things like co-op mode in the current game. To make matters even more sick and sweet, this amiibo will also be compatible with future Shovel Knight games to unlock even more content.

It’s like a Shovel Knight wonderland, and I will be frolicking throughout it, mouth agape.

Shovel Knight Will Be Immortalized In Amiibo Form

Shovel Knight is friggin’ awesome, and if you haven’t played the game yet then you need to get your act together!

Anyways, UK retailer GAME has just revealed that Shovel Knight is getting an Amiibo that will be releasing later this year, which was revealed via a tweet that was quickly deleted. Check out the image that was grabbed before it was deleted confirming this directly below.

This tweet confirms that the Amiibo will be compatible with the Shovel Knight game and will unlock new content for it, but is that really where this ends? A lot of hopeful Nintendo fans are hoping that this just might mean that Shovel Knight could be coming to Super Smash Bros., which definitely isn’t out of the question as Nintendo did a poll asking fans who they would want to see added to the game. You know who was on that list? SHOVEL KNIGHT!

The American Release Of ‘Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker’ Has Finally Been Confirmed

There had been absolutely no talks of the game for ages, but now we know for sure that the American version of Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker is slated for an early 2015 release.

The Shin Megami Tensei series has so many different offshoots that I can barely even keep count anymore, but that wont stop me from getting excited whenever I hear about a new game in the series. While Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker isn’t TECHNICALLY a BRAND NEW game, it is a major upgrade over the original 2012 Nintendo DS version. However, news of its eventual release fell to the wayside recently as pretty much all talk of existence fell of the face of the Earth.

That is all about to change, though, as Atlus has now confirmed that the USA version of the game will be releasing in the early months of the 2015 right alongside the Japanese version. What’s even better is that this game is going to be a full-fledged remake of the original DS game. Here’s what Atlus has to say about what new things Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker will be bringing to the table:

“Exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS, Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker adds full English story voices, completely relocalized dialogue, and a new episode that continues after the final day of the original DS2. The new content nearly doubles the length of the original DS2 and can be accessed immediately from the title screen.”

So, even if you played the original game on the DS to death, there is loads more content in this new version for you to sink your teeth into. I personally never got around to playing the original version, so I look forward to experiencing it in what surely is going to be the best way possible. There is also an announcement trailer for the game, so you should probably go and check that out below. 

Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker is developed and published by Atlus for the Nintendo 3DS. It is set to launch in the first quarter of 2015 in both the USA and Japan.

Nintendo Announces New 3DS With Improved Specs And Second Analog Stick

Hmm…

Well, I can’t say I saw this one coming. Nintendo has announced that they will be releasing new models of both the 3DS and 3DS XL, with the new systems going on sale first in Japan this October.

So, what do these systems bring to the table that the original versions don’t? Well, they will apparently have an improved CPU that will improve the 3D effect and reduce distortion that happens when you move your head while playing. Also, some pretty big aesthetic changes are coming to the system by way of a second (tiny) analog stick and ZL and ZR shoulder buttons. NFC supports is also built in directly to the system, which will eliminate the need to purchase an add-on for those interested in utilizing the company’s upcoming Amiibo characters.

There are claims that, due to the advanced CPU, certain games will only be compatible with these newer systems, but if that is the case then that would be really lame. There’s no reason for Nintendo to go and basically say, “Hey! If you wanna play these specific 3DS games then you’re gonna have to get a newer model! KTHXBYE!!!”

Regardless of what the truth is, the systems aren’t expected to launch outside of Japan until sometime next year. Until then, scroll down to check out a bunch of images of the new systems and their specs.
