The amiibo train steamrolls on, for Nintendo have announced 12 new amiibo coming to store shelves this summer in its latest Nintendo Direct.
New The Legend of Zelda amiibo
First up is an arguably strange choice - more Zelda amiibo! To be specific, this includes three versions of Link from past The Legend of Zelda games Majora's Mask, Twilight Princess, and Skyward Sword. What these do is still yet to be "officially" discovered, but you can bet your bottom rupee that they'll bring some juicy loot in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, possibly including additional in-game outfits respective to each amiibo.
The three figures will be available on June 23.
New Super Smash Bros. amiibo
Next, and at long last (19 months to be exact!), the remaining Super Smash Bros. DLC fighters Cloud, Corrin, and Bayonetta each of which come in two variants.
Cloud in both his default and Advent Children FFVII outfits, Corrin in both male and female versions, and Bayonetta in her costumes from both Bayonetta games. We wish you the very best of luck in grabbing hold of all six Smash amiibo if that's your goal.
The six new figures can finally be yours on July 21.
New Splatoon 2 amiibo
Not enough amiibo for you? Three more amiibo are also on the horizon for the upcoming Splatoon sequel, the three freshly designed individual amiibo figures: a new Inkling Girl, Inkling Boy and Inkling Squid - will launch on the same day and grant special limited gear in game.
The three new figures arrive on July 21.
Still can't get enough of these wonderful pieces of plastic? An amiibo for upcoming Nintendo 3DS title Hey! Pikmin has also been announced, which you can check out here.
Are you still on-board the amiibo hype train, or have you already departed for your stop some time ago? Sound-off below!
So I'm back to threatening store clerks for Amiibo. I'm trying to be a good person Nintendo...
Gotta have the Zelda, and most of the new smash amiibo. I'll just get female Kamui and ff7 Cloud. Both Bayonetta amiibo are a must.
More SCamiibo! Yay!
@SLIGEACH_EIRE Stop it - they are not a SCAM - they are ART!
Hopefully that Majora's Mask amiibo doesn't meet with a terrible fate before I can grab one.
I'm glad that Splatoon 2 will be incorporating the amiibo in a more substantial way with read/write functionality this time around. I could only hope that the same courtesy will be extended to the first series of Splatoon amiibo.
I need all those Smash Amiibo!
The two versions of Bayonetta are great. Based on each of her design. The others just look too similar to each other.
How many link amiibos are there now? Got to be at least 10 right?
@Funky_Kong: You're on a website that's full of Links.
@Tyranexx Just walk up with a Panda suit on and say "Just you know why..." people will throw amiibo at you out of fear.
(sorry I've been wanting to make a Panda Cheese reference ever since you changed your avatar)
I must have those Link amiibu
Link (Super Smash Bros. series)
Toon Link (Super Smash Bros. series)
Wolf Link (Twilight Princess) [this one may be stretching it a bit]
Link (30th Anniversary series)
Toon Link (30th Anniversary series)
Pixel Link (30th Anniversary series)
Link [Rider] (Breath of the Wild series)
Link [Archer] (Breath of the Wild series)
Plus the three upcoming Link figures… that's 11 if you include Wolf Link or 10 exactly otherwise.
Hey! The smash amiibo are finally here! Little late Nintendo...
@sillygostly Personally I would count Wolf Link. So 11 it is. I was very close
FINALLY THEY ARRIVE!
Just make more BotW amiibo so people may actually be able to get them. I like the new ones, but we need more BotW amiibo to be made.
My poor poor wallet, that is my only complain about this.
@Nik-Davies I was considering Cloud and Corrin, but with three more Links and two Bayonettas, I can forego them. I just preordered one of the Bayonettas; I hope Best Buy lets me know soon which one it is.
I mostly just want young Link, might see about the others, probably will pick a few of them up/
I love that new Amiibo are releasing and will get some, HOWEVER, I really need Nintendo to get in new stock if the existing Zelda Amiibo. Not being able to find a single Link Amiibo for sale (that isn't extortionately priced) is dampening my enjoyment of BotW. I want Epona damnit!
I enjoyed watching today's Amiibo Direct, however I'd like to hear more about new games for the Switch too
Regarding the Splatoon 2 amiibo... it's great that you can save your costumes combo to your amiibo but I hope you can save a library of costumes without amiibo! I will be disappointed if you can only do it from amiibo!
I bet that Majora's Mask and Skyward Sword Amiibos will bring a legitimate way to unlock Fierce Deity and Skyward Sword gear sets.
Twilight Princess' Link maybe will unlock the same things SSB Link unlocks: Epona and Twilight gear.
I love how they made 2 amiibo for Cloud, Corrin, and Bayonetta. TBH I think it was obvious that they would do both.
@Funky_Kong TIill we get a lovely Gerudo Link, haha. XD
They really can't spread them out a bit better? I mean, 9 amiibo on July 21st alone. That nearly £100 in 1 day assuming you find them at their £10.99 price (If not, eep.).
@123akis I would assume so. I think the amiibo are more for if you're going to a friend's house and want your customizations without either doing it from scratch or worse waiting for your friend to unlock those options....
I'll be sure to pre-order this time around. I'll be getting most of these. Hype!
More toys then games announced
Preorders up on Best Buy US. They don't seem to have a different sku per version though.
I'll be buying SS Link for sure, and all the others are on my radar. How many of these I'll buy will depend on the size of my wallet this summer...
I'll admit I was really hoping the Majora's Mask Zelda amiibo would be the Fierce Deity Link, as that would make the most sense to me since that's the costume it theoretically should unlock, but oh well, Young Link looks pretty nice too! I love the new Splatoon and Smash amiibo too!
I can't believe they made three more Link amiibos. You have one of the most varied, and interesting universes in video game history and you choose three more Links! Ugh
Where is Skull Kid? Linebeck, a Goron, pig gannon, Impa, Navi, any person, palce or thing from A Link to the Past...maybe something Link's Awakening...
Well that's another £150 for this lot. And here I thought they'd take it easy!
They are NOT a SCAM !!
Stop expressing your HATRED against Amiibo !!
Don't like ? Leave this page and never trolling with "Oh, I hate Amiibos. It's pure garbage and money waster."
Your attitudes are much like you are insulting in front of peoples who want to eat yummy foods with negativity "That foods are sucks or disgusting or whatever", try to ruin someone' business.
I'll finally be able to complete my Smash collection.
And claim the rest of the clothes in Breath of the Wild.
The only real surprise is that the Smash amiibo are coming soon, and (presumably) without a Smash Switch port. Splatoon 2 was all but guaranteed to get amiibo (speaking of which, I wonder if ARMS will get amiibo), and the 3 Link amiibo were in Breath of the Wild's code.
I only need...4 of these.
I probably won't get any of these, except maybe the Inkling Squid, but I'm still glad we finally got a release date for the last Smash amiibos.
Coming soon - alternate outfits for the other Smash amiibo!
I can understand why they've done it here though. Bayonetta has two distinct looks in both games. Cloud has an updated look in the new games. Don't know anything about Corrin but looks like it's just an alternate pose. Meh.
Very, very excited to finally be getting a Cloud amiibo. I may even preorder one, just in case.
Also, there's a Three Pikmin amiibo that works in Super Mario Maker.
@Baker1000 You truly know nothing about Corrin. It's not just the pose. Lol.
I like Skyward Sword Link. Twilight Princess Link isn't great looking in the picture... but almost every time I see amiibo in person they look better than the pictures. But then... I already have so many Link amiibo!
My eye is also on Splatoon (but own the original counterparts) and that Pikmin amiibo looks really sweet.
I have the smash Link amiibo and unfortunately I will probably be getting at least 1 or 2 more Links. Definitely the Skyward Sword Link and then either MM or Ocarina Link, if a restock ever happens
@Baker1000 Yeah, it's way more than pose - the one in front is male, and the one in back is female
@NintenNinja16 That actually is what it unlocks, but shhhh...
(People faked the amiibo data for these three a week after the game's launch and scanned them repeatedly to figure it out)
Ha! Knew about all these from people who went in the code of games and found them, just didn't know about different costumes of Smash characters and Splatoon amiibo, even though I expected amiibo in them.
I hope their is a bit more amiibo compatibility in Splatoon 2. With non-splatoon ones in just a read way for instance.
The smash ones look great. I was hoping it would come with announcements of other games like FFVII or Bayonetta or even just Smash Deluxe. Oh well
And I'm definitely down for more Pikmin amiibo
Sweet! More figures with cool bonuses!
I'll have one of each please!
Wow the 21th of July will be a bad day for my wallet since we got splatoon 2 , new splatoon and smash bros amiibo's.
Will be trying to get female korrin , Cloud ,bayonetta and the inkgirl amiibo at least.
Except Corrin (I think) and Splatoon 2 Amiibo, I'll be preordering EVERY SINGLE NEW AMIIBO as soon as they go live on Nintendo UK Store and Amazon.🤑
I finally completed collecting all TLoZ Amiibo (except SSB Toon Link, which I'm ignoring due to 30th Annie Windwaker Link) this week, just over a month of searching with Amazon refreshing, Play Asia, and eBay. 😄😢
However, most were bought at higher than original cost, but no more than £25.00.
This time, I'll preorder and secure new Amiibo at RRP.
Total cost will be <£80, or <£100 if I add both Corrin Amiibo...eek! 😕
As soon as the Cloud one pops up on Amazon it's getting ordered. Been waiting ages for it.
The day I have been waiting for and feared at the same time. Sorry wallet but I'm all in. Hopefully these alternate Corrin, Cloud and Bayonetta aren't super rare. Though they likely will be until mass produced and sold at all retailers in six months to a year.
Inkling Girl, one of the Clouds, ~female Corrin, ~Inkling Boy, ~Bayonetta (kind of want to see what some of these look like in person)
What the Zelda amiibo do is not to be discovered; it was already extracted from Breath's data with items and functions for those three Links. This information is easy to find in convenient, infographic form with a quick google search or even a look in this site's own forums.
I need all those link amiibos, and most of the others, they're so beautiful.
Finally. It took them long enough to get the remaining Smash amiibo out. I'm glad that at least they didn't decide to hold them off until a Switch Smash was released.
Will buy the Corrins to complete Fire Emblem amiibo collection; not sure about Cloud.
As for the Links, nah. I love Zelda I do. It there are just too many and they are almost all just variations of Link. I'll probably sell the Zelda ones I have (I like complete collections or nada) and stick to my Link nendoroid.
Now where can i get a Zelda Nendo?
The following comment is part of my "I missed the Direct, but this counts as highlights to me" series of wondrous comments of hypeation.
My least hypeworthy entry of my "highlights", but still amazing nonetheless. I mean, the two variants of the Corrin amiibo is good enough, but Cloud and Bayonetta? Count me in!
@Anti-Matter people are allowed to have different opinions and freely express them on here, the article even encourages this. Yes @SLIGEACH_EIRE could put it better but that's his opinion.
Personally I dislike these too, I have no interest in collecting them yet I'm in a strange position of wanting the costumes oh and Links horse in BOTW. So my choices are spend about £50 to buy a few toys I don't want so I can unlock them or have part of the game forever out of my reach. If there was another way of accessing this content then there isn't an issue, as it stands it's something that disappoints many of us
Ahhhhh the new Zelda and Splatoon Amiibo look so good and Splatoon 2 looks amazing. Pity money's gonna be tight for me over the next few months
What a joke! We haven't even received the Breath of the Wild amiibo's!
Maybe deliver those first, before releasing even more. /facepalm
I'll believe it when I see what they actually do in the game.
Bayonetta (1x either)
Corrin (1x either)
As everyone else has said, please Nintendo restock the other Zelda amiibos, they're going for crazy prices and I still want Ocarina Link and Wind Waker Zelda.
Wonder if we can expect other Smash Alternates at some point? A pile of Koopalings would be cool, and I'm sure some people want a female Robin (not sure there's much demand for another Villager or Wii Fit Trainer though, the original ones of those gathered dust on the shelves).
Louie has a chance though, tying into Hey! Pikmin...
Need to polish off the ones I have remaining before these come out!
Dread to think how much I've spent on them...
So far I've got:
Every Smash Bros amiibo to date
All 5 Yarn Yoshi
All but four Super Mario Series amiibo
All Kirby amiibo but Meta Knight
Bowser Skylanders amiibo but not Donkey Kong
All four Legend of Zelda 30th Anniversary Range
All Animal Crossing amiibo
All Zelda: BOTW amiibo
Both Classic Mario amiibo
Wolf Link amiibo
Missing four Splatoon amiibo
Missing Gold/Silver Mario
Missing Gold Bomberman
Missing Monster Hunter
And got pre-orders in for Alm and Celica.
My, I've spent a lot of money.
I'm definitely hoping to get the new Zelda ones, I was extremely lucky to get the botw ones for their normal price.
Considering Skyward Sword is my second favorite Zelda (don't judge me) I know I will be picking up that bad-boy even if it is just for displaying purposes.
@Ryu_Niiyama: That's mildly tempting, actually.
@Tyranexx Never say no to Panda. (I'm annoyed they put him through anger management classes...he is nice now...)
Nintendo really shouldn't "fu*k with the Smash Bros amiibo's".
I decided the only one I'm willing to drop money on is the Corrin one. I'm not sure if it is the male or female one, but I pre-ordered Corrin from Best Buy last night.
Totally getting skyward link! ^_^
@aaronsullivan yeah I might have realised if I had played Smash recently. Forgot there was a male and female option. Surprised Robin didn't get two as well?
As usual my response is a mixture of:
Yay more amiibo!
Oh god, more amiibo...!
They're a collectors' dream and nightmare rolled into one. I can't even get hold of any of the last Zelda ones they released (well not for non-scalper prices anyway). It's hard to keep up.
FCorrin, AC Cloud and Both Bayonetta because she is bae... and of course MM Link.
Ok got both my Cloud Amiibo Pre-Orderd and Corrin P1. Now from the ones I want am waiting on Corrin P2 and Beyonetta P2 then I'm done!
Just Splatoon and Pikmin ones for me!
Was really, really hoping for a limited run if the Qbby amiibo for Europe but sadly it's not to be.
For people that say it's a waste of money:
Personally the value of any product depends on what a person is willing to do for it/what they want from it. So although one person may see no value in it another person may be overjoyed in having that one amiibo.
It's really all from a person's personal perspective.
@Fred13 Best Buy only has the male Corrin amiibo posted for now. It's likely they will have an alternate amiibo for Bayonetta or Corrin later, or possibly Majora's Mask Link, but time will tell.
Awesome! I'm back on the amiibo hype train as well. In fact, I have bought 8 amiibo in the last week. First I've bought in well over 6 months.....
@olrodlegacy I think you meant gold Mega Man instead of Bomberman, but yeah impressive collection. I think I have you beat as I do have the gold and silver Mario as well as all Splatoon including alternates. I am missing Kirby collection except for Waddle Dee as well as gold Megaman and Monster Hunter.
I seriously thought after Smash amiibo things would slow down, but the amiibo just keep coming. I had collected nearly every Disney Infinity figure (except a few crystal figures) and quite a few Skylanders (I won't bother trying to complete those). But with the other toys to life largely slowing down I'm glad to complete the Smash, Zelda, and Splatoon sets (and yes the Pikmin as well).
@crimsontadpoles Hopefully Smash for Switch is announced at E3 with a release to coincide with the July amiibo release. We'll see.
@Nico07 Thanks for the heads up. When I made the order there wasn't a picture, but I just went back and looked and my order history shows the Male Corrin.
@sillygostly I hope the incorporate other amiibo beside Splatoon. It really bugs me that they already have so many amiibo and none the them work with the original. I understand that they wanted it to stand on its own but now with this sequel there's no reason for that. Please. Let me scan Mario and get a Mario hat. Or a peach amiibo and give me a dress as it seems that these new ones don't do much as the first one.
So glad they are making the female version of Corrin! That and the Pikmin amiibo are all I want of the newly announced.
Hurrah, even more Breath of the wild content you can't unlock without Amiibo!
TEMPORARILY stopped coz it started getting EXPENSIVE...i DO intend to finish up the entire collection at some point but havent bought one since this timr last yr at which I was all caught up
didn't feel like fighting and hoping with US retailers on the Player 2 (original) Bayonetta, so I preordered it through Game.UK for $25 (us) shipped. Been wanting reasonably priced Bayonetta figures (even if they are in Amiibo form). The alternative is the really expensive Play Arts Kai figure or statue that each fetch anywhere from $150 to $500 on ebay (screw that). got the regular Bayonetta (From the second game) at Gamestop.
so I'm set luckily
Man this header had me there.....
I thought a new smashbros anounced lol!
Where are the Koopaling amiibos?and why haven't they got their own spin off game
I've already pre ordered Majora's Mask Link and i'm hoping to pre order Skyward Sword and Twilight Princess Link next month, but what i want to know is does anyone know where i can get some of the other Zelda amiibos? I only need Ocarina of time Link, 8-Bit Link, Wolf Link, Wind Waker Zelda and the Breathe of the wild amiibos. I've looked on Amazon and eBay and some of the prices are dire. If anyone knows where i can get all those amiibos without paying so much that would be a big help
@16-bitLiam where did you manage to preorder Majora's Mask Link? I can't find the preorders live anywhere it is so making me sad!!!
As far as the previous Amiibo, I would wait to see if Nintendo increases production. There were SO MANY of Smash Bros Link floating around before BOTW came out hopefully they release more & also a second wave of BOTW Amiibo.
