Alright gamers, we heard about the Amiibo figures back at E3 in June and finally you can pre-order them at your local Gamestop or online at Gamestop.com. The initial release of Amiibo figures will be 12 in total and will cost $12.99 each. Currently we know that the Amiibo's will work on both the WiiU and the 3DS for certain games and the first game to take advantage of them will be Super Smash Bros. 3DS and WiiU.
I don't know about the rest of you but I have been collecting the Disney Infinity figures because I think they look amazing and are very well made. So I will also be collecting the Amiibos but know that I will get more use out of them because they will work on more games that I will actually want to play.
The first wave of figures include: Animal Crossing citizen, Link, Samus, Mario, Princess Peach, Donkey Kong, Kirby, Pikachu, Wii Fit Trainer, Yoshi, Star Fox, and Marth. These figures look amazing and I think their use will be amazing and make the games the work with be even more entertaining.
I'm heading to the store after work and will pre-order the figures I really want and then eventually get the rest. Have fun everyone and keep gaming!
