amiibo is certainly turning out to be a big thing in Nintendo's eyes. Whether or not the rewards for utilizing each amiibo is worthy to you, Nintendo plans to implement all sorts of bonuses. It appears right now that every amiibo is meant to do 'something' in each game though games not featuring certain characters may have more limited uses or lesser-valued ones. We've had plenty of threads on here for amiibo and I'm sure that will continue. Still, I wanted to establish a general discussion thread that doesn't have a specific focus or thought. We'll also use this thread for informing the forums about upcoming news regarding new waves of amiibo or new compatibility. Enjoy! Tell us which amiibo you're planning to get! To get the party started, here are the various waves of amiibo on their way, compatibility information from Nintendo's website, and various links to other threads regarding amiibo.
Super Smash Bros for Wii U, Mario Kart 8, Hyrule Warriors, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Mario Party 10, Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, Yoshi's Woolly World, Splatoon, CodeName: S.T.E.A.M., ACE COMBAT ASSAULT HORIZON LEGACY, Xenoblade Chronicles 3D, and more…
I was waiting for Store Pickup and/or my Best Buy password reset option, and by the time I got back around to it, it says that I can't pre-order anymore. Not entirely sure what that means. Am I completely out of luck? Is my store still getting some? Whats the poop scoop?
Picked me up that sweet Shovel Knight amiibo at target today. Nice. Also got several more of these things at Christmas, including the entire Animal Crossing set. Good times. Oh, and I have maybe half of the cards as well. Too many amiibo.
Oh yeah, almost forgot. I've also delved in to Skylanders Superchargers for the Bowser and Donkey Kong amiibo. They're kinda cool. Seems GameStop has them bundled separately, though. Not a bad way to go.
Mine arrived yesterday from Best Buy. I have the next Animal Crossing set reserved there plus Lucas but i nabbed a second pre-order from Amazon, which I generally prefer. However with the fact that BB shipped Shovel Knight to me for release day, I'm rather pleased with that and will probably just cancel the Amazon then. Not sure.
Lucas, no. Shovel Knight, yes. I called the wrong store (...) and when I got to the store I thought I called, they called my mall store (which I hadn't been to since they hosed me on the Xenoblade Wii pre-order bonus) and got one there.
