GAME.co.uk have now made the first 12 figures of Nintendo’s Amiibo range available for pre-order.
The figures which at the moment are only listed as a Winter release will be priced at £10.99 and each figure comes with it’s own unique, brightly coloured packaging. The undisclosed release date will undoubtedly fall in line with unannounced release of Super Smash Bros. Wii U.
As mentioned in previous articles here at Twinstick, the figures which are highly detailed, will be very collectable but their popularity will largely count on the popularity of not just Super Smash Bros. which will be the first amiibo compatible title, but will depend on the number of Wii U owners that will find these figures appealing.
If reports of the increase in sales of the Wii U after the release of Mario Kart 8 are anything to go by, sales of the console may increase further once Super Smash Bros. has made it’s way on to shelves meaning that amiibo may find itself open to a huge market.
We will of course keep you up to date with all of the Amiibo news as and when we have it.
