Update (12/20): Bumped to the top. Two more amiibo deals for you! Tom Nook is $9, and Mabel is $10.

Amazon is selling five amiibo or $10 each. Along with Zero Suit Samus which we mentioned a couple of days ago, you can also grab Ganondorf, Inkling Boy, Inkling Girl, and Zelda for the same price.

And if that wasn’t enough, there are a couple of amiibo deals running on Walmart as well. The Modern Mario amiibo and Classic version are $10 each. When purchased together, you can grab them for just $15 (scroll down towards the bottom on either page).

The packaging images for Roy and Ryu’s amiibo are now available. Take a look at them above.


Best Buy has opened up pre-orders for the Shovel Knight amiibo. You can reserve the figure by putting in an order here. The Shovel Knight amiibo is due out on January 8.

The Shovel Knight amiibo is being sold in almost every European territory, but it’s been facing delays in the UK. Most recently, we heard that the likes of Nintendo UK and GAME hoped to ship the figure this week. It now seems that Shovel Knight won’t be available until January.

GAME UK sent out the notice above today, claiming that the new release date is January 8. Amazon UK also has it pinned down for the same day. Hopefully this will be Shovel Knight’s final delay in the region!

Thanks to JamesSwiftDay for the tip.

Nintendo sees potential in amiibo. So says president Tatsumi Kimishima, who told Japanese outlet Sankei the following:

“There is still potential in amiibo. We want to make ‘the expansion of function to play with the game as a single entity’ one of the big pillars.”

Kimishima echoed something similar in an interview with TIME earlier this month. He said that Nintendo hasn’t yet established amiibo “as an enhancement for all of our software at this point.” Rather than using them in games, amiibo have instead been used “more as a collection item”.


The Zero Suit Samus amiibo is currently on sale over on Amazon. Like all of the Smash Bros. figures, the original asking price was $13. It can now be yours for only $10.

Nintendo of France shared sales numbers for a variety of titles today. We have figures for Wii U and 3DS games, plus the Animal Crossing amiibo cards.

Lifetime sales of Splatoon in France are now sitting at 280,000 copies. It’s the second most popular game after Mario Kart 8.

Also on Wii U, Super Mario Maker has sold 145,000 units thus far in France. Xenoblade Chronicles X, a game which just launched this month, has already moved 40,000 copies.

Moving on to 3DS, sales for Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer are at 220,000 units. New Style Boutique 2 – Fashion Forward has sold 110,000 copies.

Finally, one note about amiibo. Nearly 200,000 packs of Animal Crossing amiibo cards have been purchased by French consumers.


Amazon Germany opened up pre-orders for the Resetti, Celeste, Kicks, Blathers amiibo a few days ago. Now it’s Amazon UK’s turn! If you wish to reserve any of these upcoming figures from the retailer’s site, you can do so here.

Images have emerged showing the Roy and Ryu amiibo. You can get a look at both figures above.


Three more amiibo have been dated. Famicom R.O.B., Roy, and Ryu are all due out on March 18. The news comes from today’s final Smash Bros. presentation, which also confirmed that new characters Cloud, Corrin, and Bayonetta will be getting amiibo as well.
