In case you didn't know already, amiibo are NFC-ready toys which offer connectivity features with games on the Wii U, 3DS and Switch, but also serve as highly-detailed and very desirable trinkets that look great on your shelf.
While other toys-to-life ranges have fallen by the wayside over the years, the amiibo range has grown and grown, with Nintendo continuing to release new figures which are quickly snapped up by keen collectors.
This week sees the release of two new amiibo – Richter Belmont from Konami's Castlevania series and Dark Samus from Metroid Prime.
With almost 200 figures available at the time of writing, keeping track of these toys is hard – until now, that is! Below you'll find every single amiibo released so far, and you can also search the range using keywords or by clicking the relevant links. Oh, and don't forget to hover your mouse over the amiibo image to see what its box art looks like, too.

A Seed Pokémon that is the evolved form of Bulbasaur. It has a flower bulb on its back, the weight of which has made it develop strong legs and hips. If the blossom gets too big, the Pokémon can't stand on two legs alone. At a certain level, it evolves into Venusaur. When this happens, the bulb absorbs nutrients and blossoms into a large-petaled flower.
This Normal- and Fairy-type Pokémon is best known for its soothing singing, which can make foes fall asleep.

The Mewtwo amiibo will be available for purchase in Canadian stores beginning 11/20/15.
