    But still no western release date

    Not just a plastic case

  • Review Mini Mario & Friends: amiibo Challenge (3DS eShop)

    Tiny toys

    Nintendo's track record in promoting amiibo through free apps isn't one that's always shown the company at its best. amiibo Tap: Nintendo's Greatest Bits, for example, was a bit rubbish and unsure of its audience.

    Nintendo has enjoyed great success with sales of amiibo figures since they first began to appear on store shelves in late November 2014 alongside Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS. However, the toys-to-life market has become a bit saturated since that time with amiibo battling in the same...

    Perhaps an oncoming trend?

    It seems that the time of extreme amiibo stock shortages has finally passed, with most amiibo being relatively easy to find nowadays, save for perhaps a few extra rare ones.
