Nintendo has made a flurry of new announcements pertaining to the BoxBoy! franchise today.

First, Goodbye! BoxBoy! is in the works for 3DS. We don’t have too much information yet, but a teaser site is located here. It’s coming out on February 2 for 680 yen.

Here’s some gameplay:

A BoxBoy! Qbby amiibo is also launching on February 2. It’s said to unlock secrets, though the specifics are currently under wraps. It will be included in a limited retail package containing all three games along with an official soundtrack for 3,456 yen. The OST will contain 34 pieces from the series.

    Whoa, Qbby amiibo! Very cool. Was never really interested in the series but I might pick this up.

  • Exy

    I kinda want that amiibo.

  • ben

    I want the amiibo so much.

  • Melatelo

    Gahhhh!!! This is awesome. I really hope this comes to other territories as well!!

  • JasonBall

    Ack! Need! Now! Everything! Take my money!

    Oh look a character from a series only played by a few people gets his own amiibo. Where’s my Mallow amiibo? Or Dillon? Those two girls from Tokyo Crash Mobs? HarmoKnight (is that his name)? Mike Jones? Mach Rider? Dr. Wright?

    • JasonBall

      UH… literally every character you just listed is from a game few play. Be thankful they did Qbby.

    • Melatelo

      You do realise this game series has sold incredibly well on the e-shop right?

      • Addy

        So, all 10000 of them are looking forward to this? Digital only games outside Steam are not that widespread, not many will know the any of the game series that originate from there. This game will likely bomb sales wise.

          Then you can celebrate because your negativity will have paid off

          Your acting like Nintendo has never mentioned or marketed this game.

        • Liam Freeman

          Ummm…. Xbox Live, The Ps4, and the eShop would like a word…

            They’re not as easily accessible if you don’t have a broadband internet connection, Steam at least requires just any internet connection.

      His name is “Tempo”, if you’re still curious. :3

  • theFooFighter

    I really want that retail release

  • chocodile

    This would be a cool iPhone game. Nintendo is holding them back.

    • Liam Freeman

      BoxBoy? What about my dream Rhythm Heaven mobile game?

      • chocodile

        That too!

    It’s interesting to see how much Nintendo is working on BoxBoy! as a series. Around the same amount as the Pushmo games except this series is getting an amiibo and physical release (in Japan at least) as well! If it comes to the west, I might just have to pick this up.

  • Guymelef

    Cool! It’s a good thing I decided to not get the games yet. I may just get the amiibo with all 3 games.
