It's hard to believe, but the first amiibo range — along with Super Smash Bros. for Wii U arrive this week in North America, on 21st November. The figure range is clearly a priority for Nintendo, with 29 confirmed toys already and details slowly emerging of how they'll work in a variety of games.

With release so close Nintendo of America is naturally pushing the toys and Smash Bros. through TV commercials and other advertising. In recent weeks we've had a quirky and lengthy amiibo advert showing off the concept in some detail, but the company has now published two snappy 30 second TV commercials. These are a lot more generic in nature, focusing on the toys and the ability to 'tap' them on the GamePad to use them in the Wii U brawler.
