Amiibo Release Info (US) (Updated January 11th)

Amiibo Release Info (US) (Updated January 11th)

Important Note:  Beginning in the final quarter of 2015, Nintendo re-released several Amiibo, among them Villager, Captain Falcon, Shulk, Lucario, Greninja, and others.  Additionally, many of the previous exclusivity deals seem to have expired and some new ones appear to be struck (the Villager re-release seems to be a TRU exclusive).  Aside from the early Marth reprint included below, this guide represents only original release information. If you can provide detailed re-release information, please contact Doc Croc.

January 11th Update:

  • Added Shovel Knight amiibo wave to “Upcoming” Schedule.
  • Added Delicious amiibo box to “December 10th 2017” Schedule.
  • Corrected Schedules “September 15th 2017” to “November 10th 2017” and added higher quality photos.

  • Added new Animal Crossing Cards – Welcome Amiibo Series (unconfirmed title) to “December 2nd” Schedule.
  • Still no word on release dates (and localization regarding the last two) for the last three SSB characters, the 3 Breath of the Wild amiibo, the 6 Monster Hunter Stories amiibo, or the Animal Crossing + Sanori characters amiibo cards.

The Amiibo craze has swept North American markets by storm, leading to record-breaking pre-order sales, extreme scarcity, a thriving market for scalpers, and a number of unhappy consumers, especially after Nintendo’s remarks that not all Amiibo would be produced in perpetuity. Nerd Bacon is doing its damnedest to keep up with the latest developments in the Amiibo world and keep collectors informed.

  1. UGH this is getting out of hand! I’m all about it and shit but they’re seriously taking advantage of us gamers. C’mon… How much friggin money are they making on us?? Especially once they release 3 identical Yoshi amiibo with different colors? Talk about profit.

     
    • Don’t forget about the upcoming cards and the dual Skylander/Amiibos. I’m still waiting on something more concrete from Nintendo before adding them to the list.

      But I agree. Seeing all those Animal Crossing figures has gotten me a little worried about the future of Amiibo….obviously this is a technology that they’re invested in so I doubt it’ll slow down any time soon, but hitting 50+ Amiibo in a year is a little crazy! I would love to at least have the entire SSB series since I have so many so far, but I’m ever so slightly skeptical about the future.

      Good news is that the bubble seems to be bursting somewhat on the outrageous cost of these guys. There was a time when guys like Villager, Marth, Captain Falcon, Little Mac, etc. were fetching between $70 and $100. Glad that’s over at least.

       
  2. I will slaughter for a Slider this Holiday.
