With the Wii U and 3DS approaching the end of their lifespans and the release schedule looking rather bare, the amiibo range is going to be more important than ever to Nintendo this Christmas.

The toy-like nature of the figures combined with a low price point should ensure they sell briskly this holiday season, but just to make sure, Nintendo of America is running a commercial which focuses on the toys and their connectivity with games.

Nintendo has already sold millions of amiibo toys, and the NFC-equipped figurines have provided a vital source of revenue during a tough 2015. Hopefully this fresh promotion will ensure the firm sells a few more this Christmas.
