Your unhealthy obsession with amiibo is perfectly encapsulated in this Shovel Knight amiibo trailer.

Shovel Knight made its way to the Switch earlier this year, and the title has one amiibo under its belt.

Fans of the game are in for a treat as Nintendo has announced three more Shovel Knight amiibo in a sexy new trailer.

The three figures are based on King Knight, Plague Knight and Specter Knight, and they all look rather nifty.

Take a gander for yourself in the honest-to-goodness official trailer below, produced by GameGrumps.

The amiibo will unlock armour sets, challenge stages, and will allow players to summon fairy companions to lend a hand on quests.

They don’t have a release date yet, so keep your eyes peeled for more info on when they’ll hit stores.
