Malzeno, Felyne Malzeno Palico, and Canyne Malzeno Palamute GameStop

Original (9/6): Monster Hunter fans and amiibo collectors have been wondering when we’d be seeing the Malzeno, Felyne Malzeno Palico, and Canyne Malzeno Palamute figures in the United States. Thankfully, the wait is almost over. All of these products will be available tomorrow, September 7.

The Malzeno figure has technically been available since the rise of Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak. This was included in the game’s collector’s edition. However, there’s been no way to get it individually, and the Felyne Malzeno Palico and Canyne Malzeno amiibo have thus far not been available in the United States.

Splatoon 3 amiibo

By scanning an amiibo, players can save their favorite gear combinations as Fresh Fits to easily swap outfits. The amiibo also come with exclusive gear, and it’s possible to take in-game photos together with them.

Nintendo has also confirmed that some Splatoon 2 amiibo figures will be relaunching soon. The Callie & Marie 2-Pack and the Pearl & Marina 2-Pack will be restocked at select retailers for $24.99 each.

Original (7/28): Nintendo has set a new release date for the Steve and Minecraft amiibo as part of the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate line. Both figures are slated for September 9, the company announced today.

The Steve and Alex amiibo were originally planned for this past spring. However, Nintendo pushed back their release to later in 2022 in February. A reason for the delay was not provided at the time.


Nintendo has just confirmed that the trio of Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak amiibo will now be releasing on August 12 in Australia and New Zealand. While these figures have already released in several territories worldwide, they had been delayed to a September release in Australia and New Zealand, before now being pushed back up to an August release.

The three amiibo are Malzeno, “Canine Malzeno” Palamute and “Felyne Malzeno” Palico figures, each unlocking an exclusive set of cosmetic layered armor for your Hunter, Palamute and Palico respectively. For those interested, pre-orders of the three amiibo are live now, available either through EB Games or the My Nintendo Store here.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 will have a bit of amiibo support, Nintendo and Monolith Soft have revealed.

In the game, players can scan the Shulk amiibo. Doing so will change the character’s sword to the Monado.

min min amiibo no nfc blocker scannable

Eight years after the amiibo line kicked off, Nintendo has started to make a change with the packaging, which lets the figures be scanned in the box.

Up until now, previous figures had an NFC blocker included. That meant you’d have to take the amiibo out of the packaging if you wanted to actually use it. For some people that was never a big deal, but there are collectors out there that like keeping the figure in its box.

min min smash bros amiibo release date

Original: Nintendo has announced a final release date for the Min Min amiibo as part of the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate line. The figure will release on April 29, the company just announced. While that date technically only applies to Japan at the moment, most Nintendo products tend to release around the same time and we’ll let you know if there are any changes for North America / Europe.

In other news, the Steve and Alex Smash Bros. Ultimate amiibo have been delayed. Rather than this spring, they’ll now ship later in the year. Nintendo apologized for the extra wait and explained that the move comes down to delays with production and distribution.

Although Super Smash Bros. Ultimate ended DLC support towards the end of 2021, it looks like we’ll continue to see new amiibo possibly into 2023. There are still other figures that we should see in the future including Pyra / Mythra. However, we’ll need to wait until a later date for more news about other Smash Bros. Ultimate amiibo.

Update: Nintendo has now quickly confirmed the same date for North America.
