Check out the new PAX trailer for "Fast Racing NEO." The game looks simply beautiful and it's kind of what I expect F-Zero would have looked like had it ever made it to the Wii U. This indie title launches later this year.

Pre-order the Shovel Knight amiibo from UK Retailer GAME Starting Tomorrrow

Earlier in the week, a Spanish retailer showed a listing for a Shovel Knight amiibo figure. This sparked rumors that Shovel Knight would  be the next character to join Super Smash Bros for the Wii U and 3DS. Well, it now appears that these rumors are correct .. or at least there is a Shovel Knight amiibo on the way. Today, the popular UK retailer GAME confirmed that there is indeed a Shovel Knight figure on the way.

Right now, the figure is said to work with Nintendo titles from Yacht Club Games and other titles that can't be shared at this time (they are likely talking about Smash Bros. Mario Kart 8 or maybe even a spot in Super Mario Maker). You can pre-order the amiibo starting tomorrow and it launches November 27th.

The Tweet was taken down almost as quickly as it went up. Looks like they jump the gun a bit. However, you can still see the original Tweet above.
