Update (3/16): This ended up selling out, but the amiibo 2-pack is currently back up. Place an order while you can!

Original (3/15): Amazon has started taking pre-orders for the new Splatoon 2 amiibo. If you’d like to reserve the Pearl and Marina figures, you can do so here. Note that they’ll only be sold in a 2-pack in North America.

GameXplain has a closer look at the new Detective Pikachu amiibo being released alongside the game next week. View an unboxing video below.

When the Super Mario Cereal originally hit stores, it came with amiibo functionality. The box could be used similar to other amiibo in titles like Super Mario Odyssey.

Interestingly, it seems that a new version of the Super Mario Cereal is starting to find its way into stores without the functionality. The NFC tag is completely gone. You can still eat the cereal, but it looks like the original box is being phased out.


Nintendo has determined a release date for the new Splatoon 2 amiibo. Pearl and Marina will be available starting on July 13.

Here’s the news straight from Nintendo:


Thanks to IGN, we have a new look at the Detective Pikachu amiibo. You can view a few photos below, including a few comparisons to the original Pikachu figure.

The Detective Pikachu amiibo is significantly larger at nearly twice the size. In the actual game, it can immediately unlock cutscenes which reveal “a combination of hilarious content that might also provide a hint.”


At Niconico Chokaigi today, Nintendo revealed two new amiibo for Splatoon 2. Pearl and Marina will both be getting their own figures. By purchasing the amiibo, you’ll be able to take pictures with the idols and obtain special gear.

Here’s a trailer:

The Pearl and Marina amiibo are heading to stores later this year. In North America, they’ll be sold in a 2-pack for $24.99.

Thanks to Justin A for the tip.

Earlier today, Detective Pikachu was announced for the west. The news was accompanied by the reveal of an entirely new amiibo, which is bigger than other figures in Nintendo’s line.

We now have confirmation that the Detective Pikachu amiibo will cost $30. That makes sense given the size increase.

You can use the amiibo in-game to unlock “a combination of hilarious content that might also provide a hint.” You can still access this through normal means, “but tapping the amiibo will allow players to unlock content more quickly.”

The official website for Detective Pikachu houses the official boxart for the new physical release in Japan as well as the upcoming amiibo. We have both images attached to this post.

Detective Pikachu launches in North America and Europe with the new amiibo on March 23. Japan’s physical release with the figure is also happening on the same day.


When the first two Bayonetta games were announced for Switch at The Game Awards, we heard that some new features are planned for Bayonetta 2. Tag Climax will now let you play locally (in addition to online), and amiibo will be supported.

Nintendo UK’s website reveals how amiibo functionality will be incorporated into Bayonetta 2. Tapping a compatible amiibo will “instantly unlock a number of Nintendo-themed costumes for Bayonetta to wear, weapons to use and more”. Costumes can still be unlocked normally as you progress through the game.

PlatinumGames originally created these Nintendo costumes for the Wii U release. You can unlock outfits based on Link, Princess Peach, Daisy, Samus, and Fox McCloud.

Thanks to Christopher for the tip.


We previously reported the Metroid amiibo 2-pack tying-in with the release of Metroid: Samus Returns was seeing a new run of manufacturing. It appears this run is now available. You can order yours from GameStop here.
