Nintendo will release some amiibo figurines as “limited-time offers”
Not all amiibo figures will be freely available. During Nintendo’s financial results briefing yesterday, president Satoru Iwata mentioned that some amiibo will be offered as “limited-time offers”.
The amiibo figure lineup for “Super Smash Bros.” will continue to be released even after this year-end sales season, and we hope that this will help to update store shelves. As store shelf space is limited, some amiibo will remain stocked on the shelves as staple choices while some will be limited-time offers which will cede their positions to new ones once they are sold out.
Iwata did not elaborate beyond this. It’ll be interesting to see which figures are limited!
