Jo Bartlett, who was Nintendo UK’s head of communications and partnerships, has left the company. Bartlett spent four years at the company and replaced Rob Saunders who left the company to go to work with Apple. It’s not clear why Bartlett has left Nintendo UK, but we would like to wish her the best of luck. Here’s what general manager Simon Kemp had to say about her departure.
“Jo has been a real asset to the Nintendo UK business – especially valued for her professionalism and attention to detail,” Kemp stated. “She will be greatly missed.”
The Nintendo UK store now has the Animal Crossing amiibo triple pack available to order. The pack includes the K.K Slider, Reese and Cyrus amiibo and costs £29.99 with free delivery. Orders are limited to one per customer.
You can head over to the Nintendo UK store to order, as at the time of writing this article it’s still in stock. You can also check out a detailed look at the Animal Crossing amiibo collection here.
Nintendo’s official UK Youtube channel has released a helpful video overview detailing the functionality of amiibo. The two-minute clip introduces the figures and demonstrates how to tap them into various games on the Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, and New Nintendo 3DS. Unlike the recent holiday marketing that focused on the costumes amiibo unlock, this video shows the unique game-specific functionality of the figures. Interestingly, however, the trailer does not state that the same amiibo figure can be used for multiple games, a point that Nintendo has stated differentiates it from its competitors.
