Rumors that Shovel Knight is coming to Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS have been somewhat validated by a leaked Shovel Knight Amiibo.
When the Super Smash Bros. Fighter Ballot was announced months ago, one of the most requested characters was the blue, shovel-wielding warrior. Although a third-party character whose games are now played on multiple systems, the Shovel Knight series first started on the Wii U and 3DS.

Numerous sources claim that Shovel Knight is indeed coming to Super Smash Bros. Wii U / 3DS, and GAME UK leaking his Amiibo erases nearly all doubts. There have even been reports of exclusive Shovel Knight content coming to Nintendo platforms.
Super Smash Bros. Wii U is one of my all-time favorite games, and it’s good to see Nintendo continuing to support it. Will Shovel Knight be a good addition to the game?
