Hey I’m Nintendo
Arin Hanson aka Egoraptor is in Nintendo’s official reveal trailer for the new Shovel Knight amiibos in a Game Grumps-produced video. No, he doesn’t beat-box, make fart noises, or reference dicks in any way, but he is quite steamy when admiring his new Specter Knight, Plague Knight, and King Knight amiibos.
The amiibo are “coming soon” and will “unlock exclusive armor sets, new challenge stages and the ability to summon fairy companions to help players on quests” in Shovel Knight.
It’s bit more random of a choice than using Zelda and Robin Williams to promote Ocarina of Time 3D given their story, but content creators are entering the public eye more and more. Even those that don’t really watch let’s play content know who Egoraptor is.
