Nothing lasts forever
Reports about the success of the Switch continue to appear on a daily basis, but one Wall Street Nintendo analyst has warned sales could begin to slow for the Japanese company. Jefferies analyst, Atul Goyal, has cut his forecast for Nintendo's stock price by more than 10 percent, from a target of ¥71,200 ($640.45) down...
Reacting to demand
In Nintendo's recent Investor Q & A it was emphasized that, in addition to amiibo cards coming this year, particularly popular figures would have additional manufacturing runs in an attempt to meet demand. Just this week Nintendo of America announced more Marth stock on the way, and now Nintendo has confirmed a few key toys...
Count the days
Nintendo's well aware of the stock issues with some amiibo figures, even if it's not actually able to resolve some of the problems affected the toys' availability in stores. We expect amiibo in card-form later this year, and some key figures will get additional runs of stock to meet demand, though we suspect it'll be difficult for the...
Offers £2 in credit, break out the bunting
We apologise for being the bearers of bad news, but that seems to be the trend with amiibo pre-orders and shipments. While some have been lucky enough in recent days to get hold of a Shulk amiibo, it's proving problematic for many others, with delayed or cancelled pre-orders doing the rounds. Amazon UK is...
Cross those fingers
The next wave of amiibo figures is due in the coming weeks in North America, though like with those previous releases there are expected to be challenges for all keen fans to get hold of the figurines they want. Already there have been delays to Amazon pre-orders for the Mega Man amiibo and others such as Toon Link, with orders...
Some Toon Link orders also affected
The next wave of Super Smash Bros. amiibo is due to roll out in the coming weeks in North America, with figures such as King Dedede, Sonic, Ike, Sheik and more on the way. It seems that pre-order stock issues are emerging once again, however, with a number of Amazon customers receiving notifications that orders...
No longer just those that ordered multiple units
Just recently we reported that Best Buy was cancelling duplicate orders for the Majora's Mask 3D New Nintendo 3DS bundle; after seeing eBay flooded with pre-orders for sale of the highly anticipated hardware, it could arguably have been considered a positive move. On the downside, however, those in...
Wave 4 pre-orders sold out, some wave 3 toys still availalbe
With this week's release - in Europe - of the first batch of wave 3 amiibo, the topic of stock and getting hold of our favourite figures is back on the agenda. A common issue - with rare amiibo and limited edition hardware - has been eBay sellers buying up goods to sell on at a profit;...
Re-stocks on Marth, too
Just last week Nintendo outlined its next line-up of Super Smash Bros. amiibo that's due in April, and with a certain Ness in the roster some of them will be fiendishly hard to get hold of. Those in the UK may want to hurry up, then, as the Nintendo's Official UK store is now taking pre-orders. At the time of writing...
Pre-order stock for upcoming wave also woefully short in North America
Wave three of the Super Smash Bros. amiibo is almost upon us, arriving in Europe on 23rd January and North America on 1st February, but we've just been reminded that - while they're lovely in principle - actually getting hold of these figures is a challenge in itself. A member...
Some details would be nice
It's telling that, as Disney Infinity and Skylander toys pack shelves, Nintendo's amiibo figure range is often thin on the ground, with some models being particularly hard to find. It's a credit to Nintendo's new product that it's selling in such numbers and creating terrific demand, while at the same time there's obvious...
Nintendo's stock value has had a funny year, with a rapid spike and equally sudden decline showing how temperamental the markets can be. Since late January the big N's stock has fluctuated, but the general trend has been upwards. We reported on this in some detail in late May, with the value heading back to stable levels seen throughout...
Iwata: "It's very strange."
Much like the 3DS, Nintendo is adamant that Wii U has to be seen and experienced first-hand if it is to be understood. Could this be the reason why Nintendo shares took a plunge following the new console's announcement at E3? In the two days following Nintendo's E3 conference on Tuesday, shares dropped by almost 10...
