amiibo

Target will be handling the launch of Friday’s new amiibo in a peculiar way. We’re not sure why this is, but customers will only be allowed to purchase two figures in total. That means you could go with a combination like Charizard and Wario, but that’s it. Just two.

The official “AskTarget” Twitter account posted the following earlier today, which has since been backed up by other employees:



I can absolutely understand limiting things to one of each character. Only allowing customers to purchase a total of two figures, though? That seems a tad crazy. If Target wasn’t offering the exclusive Jigglypuff amiibo, I doubt many people would be trying their luck there!

Unity 5 was revealed back in March. When the announcement was made, we learned that it would run on a number of platforms, including Wii U. However, Unity followed up at the time by noting that it was unsure when Wii U would actually be receiving support for the new engine.

A development source speaking with Nintendo Everything has now confirmed that Unity 5 is starting to make its way to Wii U. A beta build based off of Unity 5.0.1 was just recently distributed, so teams can begin working with the upgraded technology.

Unfortunately, it’s sounding like it will be awhile before we actually begin seeing the first Unity 5 games released on the eShop. The information we received indicates that developers who intend on submitting titles before fall are being told to stick with Unity 4.3, as 5.0 is not currently master submittable.

mousecraft

MouseCraft is coming to Wii U, developer Crunching Koalas has announced. The studio confirmed the news on Twitter a few days ago with the following message:



MouseCraft originally launched on PC and PlayStation platforms last year. It’s described as “an A to B puzzle game” in which players stack Tetrominos blocks to help mice get to the cheese. Obstacles, collectibles, and the ability to create/share your own maps will surely keep things fresh.

MouseCraft should be landing on Wii U sometime during Q3 2015.

Rumor: Low wave 4 amiibo shipments at GameStop, no more holds, Shulk restock in June

A rumored internal memo from GameStop provides an update on the situation surrounding amiibo.

Like every major retailer, GameStop will begin selling wave 4 Smash Bros. amiibo on Friday. But sadly, the stock situation here doesn’t sound too encouraging… aside from silver Mario.

Here’s what was shared by Reddit user “gamestopinfo5678″:

Our shipments of wave 4 SUCK. plain and simple. from 0 robins/lucina to just one of each. 1,2, or no nesses. Surprisingly we’ll have plenty of silver mario’s for whatever that’s worth. Memo stated that we will not be re-supplying wave 4. Once we run out, we are out. you can camp gamestop if you want, but as a collector myself…I’m not. I can spend my time better at another store with much better stock. (this doesn’t mean there won’t be the abnormal store here and there that might have decent stock)

The one bright spot? We’re hearing that GameStop will post in hand stock on the morning of May 29 on the door. That means you’ll be able to see stock totals while waiting in line.
