Three new Zelda amiibo arrived today. You can pick up figures for Twilight Princess, Majora’s Mask, and Skyward Sword variations of Link. View an unboxing video below.

Nintendo revealed a whole slew of amiibo at E3 this week. Among these were two new Fire Emblem amiibo for Chrom and Tiki.

Thanks to Amazon Japan, we have a look at the packaging. The boxes for both amiibo are above. They’ll be the same in the west, just with the English text for Chrom and Tiki’s names.

The Zelda: Breath of the Wild amiibo should be appearing on store shelves again soon. Nintendo’s CPSIA site contains updated listings (from earlier this week) for the Link (Rider), Link (Archer), Guardian, and Zelda figures. Each one received additional manufacturing in May. Be on the lookout for more stock soon.

Nintendo’s fact sheet for Super Mario Odyssey mentioned that “some” previously released amiibo will be compatible with Super Mario Odyssey. However, the new developer diary confirms that all will work with the game in one form or another. Nintendo is also preparing special Super Mario Odyssey amiibo with Mario, Princess Peach, and Bowser in their wedding outfits.

Amazon has posted the packaging for the new Koopa Troopa and Goomba amiibo being added to the Super Mario series line. View both of the images above.



When the new Metroid amiibo release, they’ll come in a 2-pack. Amazon has a listing up showing the packaging for the Samus Aran and Metroid figures, and we have it above.


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.


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.

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.
