Nintendo of America just sent off a Press Release announcing when various amiibo figures would arrive in stores. Several of them are arriving on September 11th, 2015, including the 8-bit Mario amiibo modeled to celebrate Super Mario“s 30th Anniversary and Super Mario Maker. I got a chance to see it in action at E3 2015 back in June; that“s one of the few amiibo I“m interested in. Have you read my hands-on impressions of Super Mario Maker yet?
Other amiibo launching on September 11th include:
- Zero Suit Samus
- Bowser Jr.
- Doctor Mario
On September 25th, 2015, a Retro 3 Pack featuring Duck Hunt, Mr. Game & Watch and R.O.B. is coming. The Press Release does not detail any exclusive retailers for this package, nor does it mention any conceivable way to obtain any of the Retro 3 Pack amiibos separately. If they do, I“ll amend this article.
There are still plenty of amiibo that aren“t yet announced here including Mewtwo, Lucas, Ryu and Roy. And the â€œmodernâ€ variant of the 8-bit Mario amiibo with red and blue colors versus red and brown...is conspicuously missing from the list in the Press Release.
Are you interested in any of the amiibo coming soon? Be sure to let us know!
