Spanish Retailer XtraLife Lists Shovel Knight amiibo

XtraLife is listing a Shovel Knight Smash Bros. amiibo.
Did he win the Fighter Ballot?
I'd buy him, and his amiibo personally.

EDIT: Apparently the artwork comes from that "Smashified" guy's YouTube channel.
Strange though how a retailer would list it.

Yeah Luma it's from Smashified, it's a fake pic and they put a listing up of it. XD Really odd that they'd do that though.

The fact it went up as a sales listing is pretty funny.
No idea as to Shovel Knight's prospects myself tbh.

^ I don't know either, but I think there's a possibility. If an indie character were to be added, I wouldn't doubt it was Shovel Knight. It really just depends on how popular he is compared to Nintendo's characters in the ballot.

The main thing that gives it away unfortunately is that is is indeed Shovel Knight's smashified artwork. I've seen it awhile back and recognized it instantly.  The artwork is well done but they really should have done their own original artwork to make it more believable. I wonder why a retailer listed it, could it possibly be a placeholder image? I doubt it but it would be nice.

I'd totally buy a Shovel Knight amiibo and would love him in Smash, but considering he's an indie character and Shantae seems to be the more popular indie vote in the ballot we probably won't be seeing our glorious cerulean knight smashing Nintendo characters sadly.

It's funny how stupid they were to put up an amiibo for a character whom wasn't even confirmed in the game, and using an artwork that clearly looks like it's not real (because they used the Smashified version for BOTH the artwork, which is fine, and the amiibo itself.)

I'm pretty Japan does not even know about Shovel Knight so there's no way he's number 1 and it's pretty sad how people are making fake amiibo listings now.
