Pokken Tournament DX will work with amiibo
Posted on 5 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 4 Comments
Pokken Tournament made use of amiibo on Wii U, but only in a really small way. Early copies included a Shadow Mewtwo card, allowing players to unlock the character right away.
For Pokken Tournament DX, amiibo compatibility will be back. It’s just unclear if there will be more extensive support for the functionality compared to the Wii U original.

CPSIA listings point to possible Zelda: Breath of the Wild amiibo restock
Posted on 6 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News | 9 Comments
Towards the end of last week, Nintendo put up new CPSIA certificates for most of the Zelda: Breath of the Wild amiibo. Archer Link, Rider Link, and the Guardian now have an extra month of production.
The Breath of the Wild figures have been pretty tough to find, so a new run would make sense. We’ll keep you updated on any major restocks in the future assuming there are any.
Those Monster Hunter Stories amiibo will probably be released in the west
Posted on 6 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in 3DS, News | 5 Comments
Monster Hunter Stories was finally announced for the west during the most recent Nintendo Direct. However, it was only discussed briefly with a confirmed fall launch in North America and Europe.
In Japan, a number of different amiibo were created for Monster Hunter Stories. Although nothing has been said about the figures in the west, they’re likely heading coming over with the game itself.
The official boxart for Monster Hunter Stories was revealed alongside the overseas announcement. And as you can see, while it seems to have slipped by most people, the packaging image has the traditional amiibo logo tucked away in the top-right corner. As far as we’re aware, only the Monster Hunter Stories amiibo are compatible with the game. So even though folks have been wondering about the Monster Hunter Stories figures, this should mean that we’ll be seeing them in North America and Europe.
Thanks to Jake for the tip.

Splatoon 2: amiibo outfits revealed
Posted on 6 years ago by Matt(@OnePunchMaz) in Screenshots, Switch | 2 Comments
A new set of amiibo is being released alongside Splatoon 2, and just like in the first game, these will unlock special outfits. These are somewhat similar to the outfits the original amiibo in the first game unlocked – the new Inkling Girl amiibo unlocks a school uniform, the Inkling Boy amiibo unlocks a ninja outfit and the Inkling Squid amiibo unlocks a set of heavy armor (called Power Gear in the first game).
In the original Splatoon, you had to play special challenge levels to receive the outfits. We don’t know yet how it’ll work in Splatoon 2, as we barely know anything about the game’s singleplayer content at the moment.

The Binding of Isaac creator asking about interest in an amiibo
Posted on 6 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News | 18 Comments
Edmund McMillen, creator of The Binding of Isaac, is asking fans if they’d buy an Isaac amiibo. McMillen put out a poll on Twitter to gauge interest (see it here, has a bit of strong language).
Indies have rarely taken the opportunity to create their own amiibo. Yacht Club Games is the only studio to have taken on the challenge, having created a Shovel Knight figure last year.
Is an Isaac amiibo something you want to see happen? Would you buy one?
