Amiibo’s are a very curious phenomenon in the gaming industry. On one hand, they sell like hotcakes, and every new wave brings much hype for those who want to collect and play as their favorite Nintendo characters. However, they aren’t sold in bulk. In fact,demand is so high they’re gone within hours of their actual release (believe me, I know. I work in a store that sells them). This has left many a fan in anger because they never even had a chance at getting the Amiibo’s before they’re gone (I still don’t have an Ike Amiibo, and I am very sad because of it). Well, if you’re a fan of Pit or Wii Fit Trainer, your luck may be changing. Nintendo tweeted the following message earlier today:
“Hey everyone! Heads up that in the coming weeks you’ll be able to find more Wii Fit Trainer and Pit #amiibo figures in limited quantities.”
Now yes, the words “limited quantities” does not instill a lot of confidence, but it’s better than nothing. Right? And who knows? Maybe we’ll get some news from E3 about when a major overhaul of Amiibo’s is coming to stores near us. Until then, we’ll just have to hope for the best, and get to the stores at earliest convenience to buy them all!
