Nintendo shows off Amiibo figures; hints at price


Nintendo's range of Amiibo NFC figures has been shown off via a new screen, while the price range has also been hinted at.

You can see the full range below, while speaking to Seattle Times, Nintendo of America boss Reggie Fils-Aime stated that the range would be priced similarly to other NFC models.

"You can expect them to be comparable to the Disney and Skylanders products that are on the market," Fils-Aime said. Given that Disney Infinity figures are around the £9-10 mark and Skylanders range from £6-12, then it seems Nintendo will offer a competitive price.

Amiibo figures will be be compatible with Super Smash Bros and will eventually be made for use in games such as Mario Kart 8, Mario Party 10, Captain Toad and Yoshi's Woolly World.

I want them all, but mostly Pikachu and Peach. Going to be a massive money sink

This is probably one of Nintendo's most cynical cash grabs in a very long time tbh.

Also Nintendo memorabilia can really skyrocket in price once they go out of print so with that in mind I'll be buying two of each

Nintendo really know how to milk their audience... though I'll defiantly be getting a few =)

I'll be picking up at least one of these, and the price doesn't seem that bad. I've no idea about Amibo figures, so I'd have to see one in action before I contemplate buying more than just Link

If it was milking they wouldn't make the figures universal for each game

Just had a thought. These figures could be used for Smash DLC in the future. I don't think Krystal will make the cut so hopefully she is DLC next year

Who is everyone's dream character to make the cut for Smash? Mine is Blaziken (Pokemon) and Krystal (Star Fox)

" If it was milking they wouldn't make the figures universal for each game" - Isn't this also the case for the Disney and Skylanders figures though? If they're charging the same price here, they couldn't get away with not having this be the case really.

How many games can you use Disney figures in, one or two? What about Skylanders, half a dozen max? Nintendo figures can be potentially used in any Nintendo game, a lot more.

Infinity have a lot more other stuff to buy such as the Power Disks and I was under the impression that the Skylanders figures are not cross-compatible

I think the old figures can work with the newer games, but not vice versa with Skylanders.

So the original Spyro figure (The hideous one) can work on the latest Skylanders game? Anyhoo difference is Nintendo aren't making these necessary for any game (At least not yet)

I like the idea of being able to use the likes of Link and Pikachu in Mario Kart.

I like this idea. Some people might feel put off because Skylanders and Disney Infinity, but Nintendo are not trying to do exactly how others do it. It's going to work in multiple games and not feel fixed to just one. It's going to work for Wii U in Winter and 3DS sometime in 2015 and it's not required to play that character in a game and it's optional and like Nintendo have said, they will work in many different way and and will be used uniquely to each game that supports Amiibo.

As long as you do not need the figure to use the character then I am ok with it. ITs ok to add bonuses for using it but I dont think you should be restricted after buying a full price game. Its my main problem with Skylanders. It does not seem to be what they are doing which is good.

I like all of these & will get some. But my favourites have to be samus,zelda,link & princess peach. I hope Nintendo will make more fire emblem ones in the future too. I cant wait to test this new feature out personally.
