At least they're making these amiibo do things for multiple games, Link on the spinner just reminded me of Beyblade the whole time.

^ Yeah, but that was kind of expected. I mean, I wouldn't think they would do exactly the same thing they do in Smash Bros. for every other game they are used in.

It turns out the Zelda Amiibo will give you a item in Hyrule Warriors.

Here's the first look at wave 3. At this time it's unknown when they will come out.



The Rosalina and Sonic ones don't look that great but, I still plan on getting them since I want every Smash Bros character and I think those 2 will work with other games down the line.

With good news comes bad though.

Erase before using on another game. http://www.nintendo.co.jp/amiibo/list/index.html …

I see people getting mad about this when Smash is the only known game that treats them as save files since you only to scan them once in Mario Kart 8 and Hyrule Warriors. I may be a issue down the line but, there might be a work around by then.

That's pretty upsetting.

Man Sonic looks bad, those platforms are ruining it.

^ Exactly, couldn't they have chosen positions that wouldn't be so hard to replicate with the Amiibo? They wouldn't have to have the poles and blocks. But at least these ones are all clear, there's no amber yellow pole like for Link. Razz

I think they look pretty good, at least better than some of the Amiibos releasing now. Although Rosalina's looks terrible. Ike's is the best since the paint job looks the best, and King Dedede looks really good other than the crosseyes.


In other news, Shulk's Amiibo is GameStop exclusive. Face Palm! If you check their website it says "GameStop Exclusive." That's just terrible...

EDIT: And in more other news, Amiibos are region-free! ^^ Yay, I guess Iwata was being serious about trying not to do region-locking!

^Good.

I hate the fact I can't buy eShop Cards in the US, I mean I bought my Wii U there...

Personally I won't have to worry about the save feature since I don't have Smash Bro's so any other game that uses the save feature I guess I'll just have to choose my character wisely. Idk I kind of wish Nintendo would do the same thing that Activision is with their Skylanders figures; since if you take a Skylander figure into a new game it remembers everything you did in order to upgrade it & lvl it up. It'd be nice if the Amiibo's were the same in that fashion. =/

It looks like there coming this February.



It sucks that America has to wait but, at least they all come out at once unlike Japan where Shulk, Mega Man and Sonic are placed into a wave 4.

I think you should pre-order that one if you really want it since GameStop will likely only stock a few.

@Queen
Too bad, "GameStop or go home" - Nintendo Razz I have no idea why they'd even consider doing retailer exclusive Amiibo, but I guess Xenoblade was only available there for a time, so Shulk's Amiibo being the same way kind of makes sense.

@Gameguy
Cool, that's pretty soon.

@Luma
Not only eShop cards, any game on 3DS or Wii U...I'm hoping Nintendo's next console or handheld is region-free too, this is a good first step.

Yeah, but I buy 3DS and Wii U games in the US all the time.
The eShop Cards are literally country-specific.

Toys R Us is having a buy 3 for $30 next Friday and Saturday.



I might take part in the deal since one of the express stores is in my town for the holidays. I just don't know if they will stock the Amiibo's or not since it's a small store unlike the regular Toys R Us stores.
