We suspected that the Animal Crossing amiibo cards would be a huge success in Japan and that was further backed up by Nintendo who said that they were delaying the second wave of cards as demand of the originals had outstripped supply and that they were working on producing more cards. Now it has been revealed via Media Create that Nintendo has sold over 312,000 packs of Animal Crossing amiibo cards. We also have data that shows that Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer sold an impressive 523,000 copies in its first week on sale in Japan. That’s pretty impressive.
Nintendo Japan has confirmed today that the second series of Animal Crossing amiibo cards have been delayed until an unspecified date. Series 2 was supposed to be released on September 30th but has now been pushed back. The reason for the delay is presumably because the card sales have exceeded Nintendo’s initial expectations. Shipments of Series 1 will be coming in late August and the planned production of the Series 2 cards has been shifted to Series 1.
