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.

Ah crap, didn't some new Retro Link Amiibo drop??

EDIT- Ugh, YES, 4 new 30th Anniversary LoZ figures came out 3 days ago. Noooooo..

They do look pretty good. They're still going in and out of stock on Amazon so keep checking!

I got the retro Link at GameStop, no problem. I looked at the OoT Link and the WW set and I must say that the level of detail of amiibos has definitely gone up. 0 derpiness given.

I got the bunch at Amazon.ca after a restock. Even though I missed out on it initially, I didn't worry about finding them since it's not like they weren't going to restock those.

Where the fuck is my goddamned Bayonetta amiibo :|

This was rumor I think? But Smash would get a Switch port and they'd keep it for when that version is out.

12/06/16, 15:59

Oh I mean holding it back until the Switch port. That along with the Cloud amiibo.
12/06/16, 16:05
Has a Switch port of Smash been announced?
12/06/16, 17:01

That's what I meant by rumor. It's not confirmed but sounds like it could be likely to have a complete edition with DLC included.

Maybe while they're at it, they'll actually let us play Final Fantasy VII on a Nintendo system.
12/07/16, 02:11

Eh, there are a million ways to play it at this point.
12/07/16, 16:46

Not for a Nintendo-only Final Fantasy fan.
12/08/16, 00:27

Agreed. It's still financially challenging for me to play FFVII right now. I'm not even Nintendo-only but I have an Xbox One S, so I'm still outta luck.
12/08/16, 02:39
I want to see Final Fantasy VII on Switch, in part because of the irony of it being on a cartridge system.

I ended up splurging on the 30th anniversary Zelda amiibos, got OoT Link, 8-bit Link, and Toon Link/Tetra. They're all super nice, highest quality sculpting and construction yet IMHO, wayyyyyyyyyy better than the Smash series. So happy to finally have some really good Links! (in human form at least)

@deathly_hallows My fiancé ordered all of those for me for Christmas! I can't wait to crack them open and have them with the rest of my meager collection.... The only Zelda Amiibo I will be missing now is sheik and that one is pricey nowadays...
12/12/16, 02:58

I refuse to believe there are any of those as of... 1998.
12/12/16, 05:35

Well, I am one. Sorry.

Though I don't like Crystal Chronicles, or whatever the one was that had the GBA as controller.

Final Fantasy III is tops, Final Fantasy II was good (but no III), and I liked "The After Years" a lot. Final Fantasy on NES is of course super awesome. I still listen to Duane and Brand0 rap about it; great music in that game. (I think my love for Dragon Warrior -- especially IV -- attaches itself to Final Fantasy as well, perhaps skewing things a bit. But FFIII? RAD.)
