Amiibo

Nintendo has shared a new trailer for the Sanrio collaboration amiibo cards in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, which will debut at Target stores across the United States on March 26. View it below.

After The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword was announced for Switch yesterday, it promptly went up the eShop for pre-order. It seems that the store listing has a bit of additional information about the game. As it turns out, amiibo support is listed as one of the included features.

Nintendo hasn’t yet said anything about plans for amiibo in Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, so fans will be left to speculate for the time being. At the very least, the Skyward Sword Link figure from 2017 should be supported.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD arrives for Switch on July 16.

Thanks to Gaming Boulevard, we have a closer look at the new Cat Mario and Cat Peach amiibo as part of an unboxing video. Check it out below.

The Cat Mario and Cat Peach amiibo are due out on February 12. They’ll be offered individually in North America and as a double pack in Europe/Japan.

Nintendo has announced plans to distribute the Animal Crossing Sanrio Collaboration Pack, which will be making its North American debut. It will contain “all six amiibo cards from this unique Sanrio Collaboration Series”. The amiibo cards can be used “in compatible games”, and more information “will be revealed in the future.”

In North America, Target will be selling the Animal Crossing Sanrio Collaboration Pack exclusively for $5.99. It will be offered “at select retailers and online across Europe.”

Amazon UK has pre-orders up for a bunch of upcoming amiibo. Along with the double pack for Cat Mario and Cat Peach, you can also reserve the Banjo & Kazooie, Terry, and Byleth Smash Bros. amiibo.

Pre-orders are available on Amazon UK here. Cat Mario and Cat Peach are due out on February 12. Banjo & Kazooie, Terry, and Byleth will follow on March 26.

The next wave of Super Smash Bros. amiibo are now up for pre-order on GameStop. The retailer has Banjo & Kazooie, Terry, and Byleth here.

All of these amiibo will release on March 26.

Alongside the release of Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, Cat Mario and Cat Peach are getting two new amiibo. Those won’t be the only compatible figures, however. Nintendo says that Bowser and Bowser Jr., two characters that also play big roles in the game, “have special activations in Bowser’s Fury”.

If you don’t have these amiibo, there’s no need to worry. According to Nintendo, the Bowser and Bowser. Jr figures “will also be returning for purchase at select retailers”.

Update: Nintendo has now confirmed the same March 26, 2021 date for these amiibo in North America.


Original: Nintendo has dated three more Smash Bros. amiibo for Japan. Banjo & Kazooie, Terry, and Byleth are all slated for March 26, 2021.

Nintendo previously mentioned that these figures would be arriving in Fall 2021. However, it appears that was a mistake.

A western date hasn’t been set for the new amiibo currently, but it’s likely that they’ll arrive around the same time.
