New amiibo

Last weekend, Nintendo gave us our first glimpse of Banjo-Kazooie, Byleth (Fire Emblem: Three Houses) and Terry Bogard (Fatal Fury) in amiibo form. All of them look absolutely stunning and are currently scheduled to arrive at some point in 2021.

When exactly might we get our hands on them, though? Apparently, it could be around "Fall" next year - which is admittedly a longer wait than we expected. Here's the new image that the official Nintendo of America Twitter account shared yesterday:

While normally this would be more than enough information to run with - Nintendo has now deleted the tweet. Was it a mistake? Did it reveal the date too early? It's hard to say at this point, but if "Fall 2021" is the target, we're guessing the wait time could be tied to production issues related to the global pandemic.

Back in July, Nintendo mentioned how its production, shipping, and product supply may be impacted if COVID-19 is prolonged or becomes more severe.

How would you feel about a Fall 2021 release for these amiibo? Are you hoping it was just an error on Nintendo's end? Share your thoughts down below.
