Nintendo's Amiibo Figures now available for pre-order


Excited for Nintendo's Amiibo figures? Well you can now pre-order them on ShopTo for £10.85.



It's thought that the figures are set to arrive alongside Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, although we know that Mario Kart 8 and the upcoming Wii U games Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Yoshi's Woolly World and Mario Party 10 will also be compatible in some way.

The toys will also become compatible with 3DS next year either though the NFC add-on or the new 3DS and 3DS XL, which have the technology built in (although are not yet dated for Europe).

Nintendo's Amiibo will be released on November 14.

I've got Link, Samus & Mario on pre-order. It would be nice if they release a display box for these as well. I got a feeling the Amiibo is gonna drain most of incoming over the next few months!

Yoshi and Link for my first set. The rest I'll think about for a later date. I want a Meta Knight Amiibo.

Marth, Link and Pikachu for me. There are so many I would like to see but probably wont happen though. I assume it will be mainly Nintendo characters so no Sonic or anything.

Will definitely be preordering a Donkey Kong one. Probably a Link, Pit and Samus too. Ouch! My poor wallet! :(

I'd love to get the figures for Fox, Marth and Link but £12.85 is too much for my poor little wallet. Maybe I'll get some in the future.

These look awesome, most of them are must haves for me but my favourites are Link.Zelda,Samus,Marth & Princess Peach. I hope nintendo will make one of princess minda & maybe some project zero ones in the future

Hope these are placeholder prices, I want at least half a dozen of these, and was expecting them to be under a tenner a go.

There still good priced tho but i can see your point, maybe just buy your less favourite ones at an later date?

I'd already cut out my least favourite to get it down to six.

I would like Kirby! Just because its Kirby and I loved that game when I was younger

I would assume just placeholder as I have not seen anywhere else with them for order yet.

I hope so, I'll pay a tenner, but closer to a fiver would be better.

I wouldn't mind the cheaper the better though. I do like how Link is higher on the preorder chart than the likes of Destiny though.

Never noticed that, with Amiibos Nintendo have taken half the pre-order chart. ;)

Are these the actual prices now? Still a little more than i would have liked.

What do these actually do I know they interact with certain games like Smash Bros but in what way do they interact with the game and also is there a standard game like skylanders or Disney infinity?

So it's the Samus a Skylanders or Infinity figure (I hate myself)

No standard game, they apparently work with different games in different way, with Smash Bros you use it to create virtual fighters from how you play as far as I can tell.

if these restrict you from using certain characters in games then that will seriously suck.

They don't.

Tbh they might. Kirby in Mario Kart 8, Pikachu in Mario Party 10. It could happen
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar

That is a form of restricting them to the figures
Dead's avatar
Dead 2 years ago
It's not restricting any game content to people who don't buy them though.

Think thats the problem there is not much information about as to what these figures do. All I know it does something in Mario Kart 8 but have no idea what so have no idea if its worth buying one.
JoeToots's avatar

if it does that'll be a really shitty moveand i'll have to start addressing them as activision v2. I know i will get some stick off of Gloria for saying that but she wears rose tinted glasses.

What would a Link or Villager figure do in Mario Kart 8 anyway? It can't ulock them as riders cos of the DLC so ??????
JoeToots's avatar

it'll bring an increase in skylanderesque games, wouldn't suprise me if in the next mario kart you had a base roster of 5 racers or something and you'll have to buy these figures to unlcok more.
