Shelves? We’re well past shelves here.
Unlocking new in-game challenges is nice and all, but where are the Amiibo that unlock new musical numbers? They’re Callie and Marie, Splatoon’s Squid Sisters, and they’ll be hitting stores on July 8.
Nintendo have released a lot of Amiibo by now, but they’ll never make everyone happy with their character selections. Which is why there’ll always be room for custom builders like GandaKris.
Nintendo Japan are selling these things for people who want to display their Amiibo with a little pizazz. The Kirby one is cute, but the Smash stage one is amazing.
Graphic designer Sara created some really nice Undertale Amiibo figures. Even though the game only has a PC version, these would still make sense and would look cool next to all the Nintendo ones.
Wonder what the most popular Amiibo in Japan is? What people are buying in Europe? Or in the United States? Nintendo released the 2015 sales rankings for the top ten Amiibos in those three regions. Let’s see how they stack up during that calendar year.
People sure do like buying (and collecting) Amiibos. Proof of that: In its latest sales figures, Nintendo announced it’s sold 20.50 million Amiibo figures and another 21.5 million Amiibo cards.
GandaKris makes custom Amiibo. She’s made some excellent pieces over the last few months, but none so wonderful as this Detective Pikachu.
This afternoon, U.S. president Barack Obama took interviews with a few YouTube celebrities, and hey wait a minute are those Amiibo?
Nintendo is running a special Amiibo campaign in Japan. Buy an Amiibo and you get a code for download title Mini Mario and Friends Amiibo Challenge, a platformer with toy-versions of the Nintendo characters. No word yet on a Western release.
Amiibo collectors who purchased a Skylanders Superchargers starter pack for the Wii U, Wii or 3DS solely to acquire the exclusive Bowser and Donkey Kong combo figures are kicking themselves right now.
Behold, a cool as heck tribute to Pokémon Yellow in the form of a custom Surf Pikachu amiibo.
The latest fighters for Super Smash Bros.—Bayonetta, Cloud, Corrin—are all getting amiibo sometime next year. The only amiibo I own is the one from Wii Fit, but I might be tempted by Bayonetta.
Lottie from Animal Crossing joins the Amiibo army today. She’s a Target exclusive in the States (Best Buy in Canada). I know this because I am a well-informed member of the gaming press, and not because I was at Target when they opened this morning, dammit.
Up until last Friday I possessed a grand total of two Amiibo figures. Now I own nine, and I’m eagerly awaiting the release of more. It’s too bad the game they’re attached to is a snooze-festival.
Nooooooo. This is how they get you. This is exactly how Nintendo gets you to spend money on stuff that might just end up in a landfill in a few years.
