animal crossing amiibo cards restock

Nintendo has announced another restock of the Animal Crossing amiibo cards for North America.

Starting in early September, Target will be carrying the cards once again. The first four sets will be appearing on store shelves once more for $5.99. Unfortunately, Target is indeed the exclusive retailer for this one. Since Nintendo specified “early September”, you may want to keep an eye on your local store as early as today. At the moment it doesn’t look like the cards will be available online, but we’ll let you know if anything changes on that front.


zelda loftwing amiibo restock

A restock of the Zelda & Loftwing amiibo is available thanks to Amazon. The retailer is accepting new orders here. We wanted to confirm that this would remain live for some time before posting, and we can confirm it’s been up for several hours.

While the figure is certainly nice to look at, it offers compatibility with The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD. Players can scan the amiibo from anywhere on the surface world to quickly travel to the sky, and it even works within dungeons. Then by scanning it again above the clouds, you can return to the same spot on the surface.
