For folks in Canada, the new Zelda amiibo and Animal Crossing amiibo cards are now available to pre-order. You can reserve them all here. This includes the 8-Bit Link, Ocarina of Time Link, and Wind Waker 2-pack as well as the Animal Crossing: New Leaf Welcome amiibo cards.

Thanks to MrJonFaust for the tip.

Monster Hunter Stories is playable at TGS 2016 this week, and Capcom is also showing off the new amiibo relating to the game. View a few photos below.


Numerous users have reported that Nintendo of France’s website is listing the upcoming amiibo based on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for March 4.

In a way, this is part-news, and part-rumor. There’s no question about the validity of the finding, but whether it can actually be trusted remains to be seen. March 4 would be a Saturday, but most Nintendo releases these days tend to take place on Fridays.

Some are also speculating about the possibility of NX and Zelda: Breath of the Wild itself launching on March 4. It might be too soon to believe that, especially when you again consider that March 4 falls on a Saturday. This is an interesting discovery, but one that might not pan out to be anything. Perhaps it’s just a placeholder – only time will tell.


Thus far, we’ve seen amiibo incorporated into both Wii U and 3DS. The functionality is likely to be integrated into NX as well. But what about smart devices, which Nintendo is now supporting quite a bit?

Shigeru Miyamoto appears to be open to the idea. Speaking with IGN, Miyamoto mentioned: “There’s nothing we can announce today but it’s certainly an area we’re interested in, and today Apple announced some new news about their NFC technology.”

It’s not a confirmation, but that sounds like a very positive response. I wouldn’t be surprised if we see amiibo-supported mobile titles in the future.


Just like Lucina, Palutena, and other amiibo, the official Children’s Product Certificate for Ness has been updated. The figure received a new run of manufacturing for August.

We’re assuming that a Ness amiibo restock should be on the horizon. With all of the certificate updates over the past couple of weeks, a bunch of figures might be returning soon.


Nintendo has prepared an official video for the new Japanese collaboration with Sanrio for new amiibo cards. View it below.

While Sanrio characters won’t be appearing, players can acquire special furniture in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. amiibo packs will feature two random cards as well as one random seal. They’ll go on sale on November 3 for 300 yen.

Thanks to Amazon, we have a look at the Animal Crossing: New Leaf Welcome amiibo cards 6-Pack packaging. View the image above.


Nintendo is partnering with Sanrio on special Animal Crossing amiibo cards in Japan. Packs will contain two random cards as well as one random seal.

Sanrio characters will not be showing up in the game. Instead, players will have access to special furniture.

Hello Kitty, Pompompurin, Little Twin Stars, My Melody, Keroppi, and Cinnamoroll are included in the collaboration. The special seals include: Isabelle x Hello Kitty, Timmy & Tommy x Little Twin Stars, Mr. Resetti x Pompompurin, Lottie x My Melody, Kapp’n x Keroppi, and K. K. Slider x Cinnamoroll.

These new Animal Crossing amiibo cards go on sale on November 3.


Many Nintendo games these days have some sort of amiibo support, and Mario Sports Superstars will fall into that trend. The functionality is confirmed through an official screenshot shown above. The menu shows “amiibo Card” – whatever that means. Might the Mario series be receiving its own line of amiibo cards?


Nintendo first updated the CPSIA for Lucina’s amiibo. Then we heard about the same thing for Palutena. Now another slew of figures have received updated certificates.

More CPSIAs have been updated in North America. These include the Gold Mario amiibo, Robin, Pit, Mega Man, Sonic, Link, and Samus. We’ll see them back in stores soon, hopefully!
