Brand New, Un-Announced Amiibo Outed Via In-Store Displays

Amiibo communities have been in a flurry following discoveries of unannounced amiibo in in-store displays. The news started with Animal Crossing’s Timmy and Tommy being spotted as Target exclusive in an in-store Target display:

Of note, the display also shows Famicom R.O.B., the previously Japanese-exclusive color variation of R.O.B. Meanwhile, Roy was found to be GameStop exclusive through a GameStop display:

Following this, Kapp’n and Rover (another Animal Crossing group) were spotted in another system.

Rumor: Star Fox Zero To Release February 26th

There is a lot of mystery regarding the release date of Star Fox Zero. Originally announced for November 20, 2015, the game was pushed back to Q1 2016 in late August. However, a Danish retailer, COOLSHOP, has published a release date on the official page for the game. Supposedly, the Wii U exclusive Star Fox title will be coming out February 26th, at least in Europe. While this may be a placeholder date until Nintendo releases an official word, it is not uncommon for online retailers to accidentally leak launch dates and the date would fit the current timeline.
