One of the hardest amiibo to hunt down is back at the Nintendo Official UK Store, and we imagine stock will disappear again extremely quickly. Yes, you can currently get your hands on the Cloud and Cloud (Player 2) amiibo at the old RRP of £10.99. Both of these sold out very quickly after launching the first time around and have been...

A timely restock
Last month, it was discovered The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Champion amiibo would be getting reprints. Now, we obviously know it all ties in with Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity - a spin-off set 100 years before the original title. The champion line will relaunch alongside Koei Tecmo's latest Musou-style release on 20th...

Like plush amiibo
Nintendo recently filed a patent that intends to prevent damage to IC tags within soft toys. As weird as this may sound, it seems to actually refer to the NFC feature contained within plush amiibo. One example of this is the Yarn Yoshi amiibo which was released in 2015. A similar patent dating back to 31st March of the same year...

Gotta collect 'em all
We're big fans of using amiibo cards to invite villagers to our campsites in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, but let's be honest - it's incredibly hard to get the entire set and many dedicated collectors end up turning to popular auction sites in order to fill the gaps in their collection, often from unscrupulous scalpers asking...
