Lucas Thomas has tweeted a photo which suggests that Pikmin, Tom Nook and Bowser Amiibo figures will eventually be released. It doesn’t sound too surprising, as it appears as though there’s going to be plenty of money made from Amiibo figures. Would you purchase a Tom Nook, Bowser or Pikmin Amiibo?
I just wonder how the Tom Nook figure is going to work. I’m a big Tom Nook fan so I’m really looking forward to this!
Maybe wii u will allow two player perhaps. Bring your character over to a friends house and maybe transfer money, items etc :-) to
maybe a new animal crossing game! <3
Tom nook, I wonder… Pikmin, Hmmmn…. Bowser, Interesting… XD
Bowser is my Wife’s favorite Nintendo character, so that will be a day one purchse!
I wish they would use bowser’s regular sounds though in smash bros instead of making him and Dk sound like animals.
Amiibo are sentinels of the Nintendo Army.
And our new sleeping monitor devices will be used to alter the dreams of the Xbot scum forever…
I’ll buy them if they return to their original quality. It’s just the false advertisement that really crushes the deal for me. If they would have showed what they really looked like, than I would not even be that disappointed
I’ll probably still buy them just not with the same demand.
It wasn’t false advertising they were showcasing the prototypes.
If you were reading the text on the smash direct, you would not it said”Figures shown not actual size and designs may vary.”
I want one of Rosalina.
Anyone else think Tom Nook will be for Mario Kart?
I think it was pretty much obvious that Bowser would get an amiibo, considering he’s a key character from the Mario universe.
Also, didn’t they already say that every SSB fighter would get one ? Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe that’s what’s been said.
Correct. All Smash characters will get one.
Although that isn’t his smash pose, that’s just a regular bowser
Wait…..I thought that Olimar (with Pikmin) and Bowser was already confirmed?
Pikmin 4 confirmed
Animal Crossing U confirmed
Also maybe that bowser is for Mario party 10? He is such a main focus
I’m guessing more DLC for Pikmin 3 than Pikmin 4 to be honest…
I can dream can’t I?
I’ll join you in your dream, I love Pikmin…
If that’s true that means there are multiple amiibos of a single character, contradicting with Nintendo’s statement that one amiibo will work for multiple games. Also means they can rip us off with a Smash Peach, Mario Party Peach, and Mario Kart Peach. -.-
Actually, I think they are being truthful on that, just that each character will get multiple amiibos. There very well may be that many peach amiibos, for instance, but each would work in every game. It’s a way to guarantee customers have a chance at getting amiibos without having to buy all amiibos that come out to enjoy the game.
I can’t believe we haven’t heard any news of a Wii U version of Animal Crossing. I hope there WILL be one on Wii U. I also hope it’s dramatically different from New Leaf. City Folk was my least favorite in the series.
Same. I thought City Folk was going to have a bustling, big city but instead we got what was more like one section of a bloody mall. It should have been called Mini-Mall Folk.
Bowser and Pikmin or rather Olimar are likely just Smash Bros. Amiibos as they’re characters in Smash. Tom Nook on the other hand could be anything, honestly.
I wonder if Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker will have amiibo support of any kind?
bowser, samus and fox are the ones I hope to get at some point..when I feel like I can spend some money.

I’m surprised no one has mentioned that the silhouette of the Bowser one looks more along the lines of Paper Boswer more than anything as it is facing fully to the left and we can see the snout pretty well, unlike the Mario, Tom Nook, and Link ones (to name the few), which we can see outilne of their face but not in the same way we can see Boswer’s. Maybe no one else made the connection? Maybe I’m wrong and they have it just sideways and you can see through the opening of the mouth really well, but I just thought it was interesting that Bowser looked more like his Paper appearance rather than posing really badass-like.
I hope that the Link one is from TP (Twilight Princess) or OOT if he’s getting a new one! I just grabbed Toon Link today at my local GameStop and he is absolutely glorious: perfect paint, sculpting and he just makes me happy looking at him. The original one for SSB — ehhh.
But, that’s not what I’m mostly hyped about – TOM NOOK. I must have him :)
