Following a tweet over the weekend from Canadian game store Video Games Plus indicating the Marth, Wii Fit Trainer and Animal Crossing Villager Amiibo figures had been discontinued, Nintendo tells Kotaku that some figures "likely will not return to the market" once their initial shipment sells out.
But at the same time, I can't help but sympathize—the Wii Fit Trainer is one nimble bad-ass. A faceless, extremely fit goddess of death, if you will. No wonder the hero of Hidden Block's new music video, "Lovely Wii Fit Trainer," falls in love with her as soon as he sees her again in the new Smash Bros. games.
It happened! The Male Wii Fit Trainer is in Sakurai's latest Super Smash Bros. Wii U screenshots. Of course he's not necessarily a new character—could be a move- or item effect, a stage element or simply an alternate costume—but this does open up whole new possibilities in fan art.
Smash Bros. got introduced for the Wii U and for the 3DS on Tuesday, during Nintendo's E3 direct and we had the chance to see the Villager from Animal Crossing, the Wii Fit Trainer and Mega Man among others. People liked them a lot and they can't get away without some Internet attention.
