Amiibo

Many Nintendo games these days have some sort of amiibo support, and Mario Sports Superstars will fall into that trend. The functionality is confirmed through an official screenshot shown above. The menu shows “amiibo Card” – whatever that means. Might the Mario series be receiving its own line of amiibo cards?

Nintendo first updated the CPSIA for Lucina’s amiibo. Then we heard about the same thing for Palutena. Now another slew of figures have received updated certificates.

More CPSIAs have been updated in North America. These include the Gold Mario amiibo, Robin, Pit, Mega Man, Sonic, Link, and Samus. We’ll see them back in stores soon, hopefully!

Just like Lucina, the Palutena amiibo seems to be getting a reprint. Earlier this week, the figure’s official Children’s Product Certificate was updated. A new run of manufacturing was added in for this month (August).

You may want to look out for Palutena coming soon to store shelves once again. There’s no sort of exact date for her return, but the certificate suggests it’ll be sooner rather than later.

Though they were previously only listed by retailers, the Fire Emblem Fates and Super Smash Bros. for 3DS amiibo bundles have now been officially announced by Nintendo. Currently, they are only announced for Australia and New Zealand, releasing on September 22 for AU$69.95. However, given their European listings, we can expect them to at least release there, and hopefully in other regions. Each bundle includes an NFC reader, a game, and a paired amiibo, with Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright including Ike, Conquest including Marth, and Smash Bros. including Samus.

New Fire Emblem Fates bundles will soon be released in PAL regions (Europe / Australia), retailer listings have revealed. Pages on Mighty Ape show packages for both versions: Birthright and Conquest.

Along with copies of their respective games, each bundle contains an amiibo. The Birthright version has Ike, whereas Conquest features Marth. An NFC reader accessory is also included.

Mighty Ape has a tentative launch date of September 22. The price conversion puts them at about €55 each.
