Bank balances, beware

In the first Nintendo Direct broadcasts of 2015 the amiibo brand played its part, with new figures announced to keep the action going in both Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS, and a fresh range to make an impact in Mario Party 10.

Possibly the first of many eSports deals

GameCube Controller Adapter for Wii U Stock on Nintendo of America Store Disappears as Quickly as it Arrives

Either incredible demand, terribly limited stock or a mix of both
