GameStop once again has the Animal Crossing amiibo cards in stock. Get your pack here. GameStop appears to have a limit of 10.

Toys “R” Us seems to have nabbed another amiibo exclusive in the United States. On Twitter, the retailer teased that Mega Yarn Yoshi – as well as a restock of Villager – will only be available at its stores.

Here’s the relevant message:

An image surfaced yesterday of Mega Yarn Yoshi on the Toys “R” Us holiday big book. Given today’s information, it now makes sense that they’d want to feature the amiibo prominently in its promotional materials.


If you’re in North America, the only way to purchase the Chibi-Robo amiibo is by picking up the new Zip Lash game bundle. Later this year though, it appears that the figure will be offered separately. This information comes from the official Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash website, which states that it will be available this holiday.


The Mii Fighters amiibo 3-pack won’t be sold until a few weeks from now, but a lucky few did manage to get their hands on a unit ahead of time. View an early unboxing video for the figures below.

Target has started taking pre-orders for next week’s Yoshi releases. That includes the bundle for Yoshi’s Woolly World and the green Yarn Yoshi amiibo, plus the standalone blue and pink amiibo. Get yours here.

The Animal Crossing amiibo cards work with the recently-released Happy Home Designer, and some can even be scanned in with Super Mario Maker. Also, they’ll be compatible with Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival. That won’t be the end of their use apparently.

In an info card included with Happy Home Designer, Nintendo says that additional compatible games will be announced in the future. We’re not sure what’s planned, but it’s always nice to see amiibo extended to more titles.

Oh, and in case you needed a reminder, Nintendo reconfirms that a total of four Animal Crossing amiibo card series are planned. Each series is comprised of 100 cards.


The Mii Fighters amiibo were just recently confirmed as a Toys “R” Us exclusive in the United States. Thankfully, supply shouldn’t be an issue. Stock numbers thus far are averaging to around 100 units, with one store in California even receiving 200 copies of the 3-pack.


This month, Nintendo is bringing out the Animal Crossing amiibo cards Collectors Album in Europe. No such item has been announced for North America, but we’re hearing that Nintendo has started handing out something similar to fans.

Below you’ll find photos of the Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer amiibo Card Collector’s Book. This has been given out to attendees at certain Nintendo events (like the GameStop event for Yoshi’s Woolly World this weekend). It holds 104 cards: 100 card slots and four extras.

As of now, the Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer amiibo Card Collector’s Book is only available in the United States.
