Amiibo Wave 4

Following on from the replenishment of amiibo supplies locally last month, Nintendo has today locked in the Australian and New Zealand release of the fourth Super Smash Bros. amiibo wave for 25th April, which aligns with the national commemorative occasion, Anzac Day. This could prove a problem given the closure of shops on this particular date.

This latest wave includes Robin, Lucina, Wario, Charizard, Ness and Pac-Man, and follows the Super Mario amiibo collection due out 21st March. In addition to this, Nintendo Australia has also revealed six New Nintendo 3DS cover plates arriving in stores from the 2nd April onwards:

The local launch of the fourth wave of amiibo lines up with the European release, unlike the Australian debut of 3D Out Run originally expected to arrive alongside this week's wider PAL release before a tweet from SEGA late last week revealed the remaining 3D Classics line had been delayed for down under.

Let us know in the comments if any of the soon-to-be released Super Smash Bros. amiibo or cover plates interest you, or if you're just trying to come to terms with the fact 3D Out Run is still not available in Australia.
