Based on new findings from dataminers, Blizzard could be preparing Diablo III amiibo. New figures could be announced as early as this week.

What’s been located thus far is that three types of figures are supported. These include the default/generic amiibo, the Treasure Goblin amiibo, and Demon amiibo.

Nintendo updated a handful of child’s safety certificates for various Smash Bros. amiibo this month. These include Sheik, Captain Falcon, Wii Fit Trainer, Marth, Jigglypuff, Charizard, Lucario, Zelda, and Peach. Aside from Peach, each figure has an additional September 2018 manufacturing run listed.

Often with these certificate updates, it’s a sign that restocks are on the horizon. Keep an eye out for the aforementioned figures making a return to retailers in the near future.

More amiibo seem to be getting a restock in the near future. Lucario, Toon Link, Sheik, Charizard, and Marth have all seen updated children’s product safety certificates.

Almost every one of these amiibo went through a new wave of manufacturing in August. The only exception if Sheik, though it should still be included in an updated restock based on the updated certificate.

If and when we hear about amiibo restocks, we’ll be sure to pass the news along.
