General amiibo Discussion Thread
 
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.

My wife really dislikes the Squid Sisters, so we'll see how well the Amiibos go. I think they look awesome!

@Ponderus

What does she dislike about them? Their annoying voices? Their off-putting appearances? Their overall demeanor?
05/04/16, 01:53
@Mr_Mustache, as far as I can tell it's their poses when they finish the announcements. I admit it's ridiculous, but fun. Also, she's a Tom Nook fan, so not the best judge of computer character

Amazon has summer isabelle and all four of the Kirby series amiibo for pre-order. Get them while they're hot!

@Ponderus

Tom Nook is Boss!

@DrFinkelstein

Ahhh crap, I'll have to hope they're still up later..
05/24/16, 02:01
@Mr_Mustache

Did you get them yet?

Kirby
Waddle Dee
Meta Knight
King Dedede

Summer Isabelle

They're all still available.

The horror days of amiibo collecting are behind us. Thank goodness.

@ploot

Amen. I nabbed them immediately but I knew I didn't have to. Still not sure I'm keeping the whole Kirby krew.

The second Amazon puts the Squid Sisters and all that Splatoon amiibo up I'll probably nab those and cancel my Best Buy pre-order.

Those two packs are still up for Pre-order there too.

Squid Boy, Squid Girl, and Squid (New Colors)
Callie and Marie - Squid Sisters

@DrFinkelstein

Completely forgot about it last night. I might dip into GameStop tomorrow and see what I can do there. I'd rather pay cash than have some phantom withdrawl that I wasn't ready for.

--Ugh! Why do these say "Kirby - 3DS" on them? Do I really want to spend 60+ on stuff I'll NEVER be able to use? Never ever??

And whats going on with this: Wolf Link Amiibo
I thought the only way you could get this thing was via "pack-in"?


And completely unrelated, but it showed up as "related" somewhere in here, any idea why this says "Standard Edition?"
Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE - Wii U Standard Edition

EDIT- Here is a question that I found on there, answered by Ploot:

Question: Anyone have a fix to having to play this game in front of your family? I want to avoid dying of embarrassment during the music scenes. A screen maybe?

Answer: It's a wii u game, it's playable on the controller.
Or move out.

@DrFinkelstein I wonder why the girl squid doesn't have darker skin too. Bummer.

@Mr_Mustache Those are probably just people who got the bundle, opened it, and are selling the Wolf Link amiibo separately.

Tokyo Mirage Sessions has a special edition, I'm not sure if it's available on Amazon or only GameStop, but since it exists then Amazon will list the game by itself as "standard edition."

So far only announced for Japan, but Monster Hunter amiibo!

05/26/16, 17:21
@DrFinkelstein

I was going to post about this, haha! Yeah, Monster Hunter Stories will have its own Amiibo! How about that. Won't launch until October this year...and so far, only in Japan. Still...interesting!
05/26/16, 17:36
@DrFinkelstein I was wondering when this was going to happen. I knew it was a "when" and not an "if!"
05/26/16, 21:04
@GameDadGrant

I'm sure it'll come out stateside. Amiibo too. I like these amiibo but as a non-fan of the series, I have no desire to get them. They look great though.

Amazon sale

ROB: $6.91
Lucas: $5.69
Mario Classic: $8.14
K'appn: $4.53
Blathers: $4.74
Kicks: $5.58
Rover: $4.27

I feel like they really overestimated the desire for a bunch of different AC Amiibos. I'm honestly legitimately confused why there are so many AC Amiibo.
06/11/16, 20:33   Edit:  06/11/16, 20:37
@Zero

They overestimated big time. Half of the amiibo I see in stores now are Animal crossing characters
06/11/16, 21:04
@Zero

The AC overexposure (and FE overexposure) has been one of Nintendo's several puzzling decisions this gen to me. I've always enjoyed the AC series but I don't know why they're suddenly going all-in with it in terms of marketing. And we don't need Isabelle's face plastered everywhere nowadays either.
06/11/16, 21:18
@Zero

I wish I hadn't paid full price for those AC amiibo back then. Ugh, what a failure.

I'm liking Summer Isabelle but not as much as my new Waddle Dee! It's excellent!
06/11/16, 22:02



Speaking of clearing out AC amiibo...

EDIT: Dad gum, how do I image-link a tweet?
06/11/16, 22:13   Edit:  06/11/16, 22:15
@Zero

Whelp. Thanks for the link. I just dropped around $60 on amiibo that I wasn't planning on.

Oh well.
