Amiibo have proven to be incredibly popular here in the west and there’s certain figures going for a pretty penny on Amazon and eBay. Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime is aware of this and says that they didn’t quite anticipate the demand for certain figures. Reggie wouldn’t confirm whether the rarer Amiibo figures would be coming back, but he did say that the company doesn’t want to leave any opportunity uncovered.
“Fils-Aime said it’s a new business for Nintendo and it’s still trying to balance supply and demand.”
With high-demand Amiibos “We’re looking hard at addressing that opportunity,” he said, without committing to making more of those most sought-after and collectible models.
“We don’t want to leave any opportunity uncovered with these figures,” he said.
So… what about that Gamecube adapter? I’m not waiting until February to get one and I’m certainly not paying £80 for one.
should’ve pre-ordered smash…Seriously that’s more your fault than Nintendo. Next time pre-order.
Sorry, your reply for this thread was completely stupid. Bold stupid.
If a particular company turns out to be unable to meet its demands, it’s better to rethink its business as a whole.
Moreover, the pre-order culture has been pretty atrocious, since hype based on nothing is driving people to do it.
I did preorder, like 2 months in advance, and my order got cancelled. It is Nintendo’s fault that it isn’t in stock. They should have had a limit to 2 GC adapters per person.
They have already said in Europe there will be more adapters being made, they are just behind on stock. So they will eventually have more at normal prices.
ironic that amiibo out profits xbox one as one looses billions
my brother has every single amiibo 2x over i need to get my collection going
That first sentence was so necessary and on-topic!
-No one ever
It’s awesome that Amiibo are in high demand, but limited stock. It’s like the Wii launch in that regard…
It’s great if the amiibo expand to most games of the Wii U
Now that I think about it, it’s is possible since most great games for the Wii U are from Nintendo.
Funny how I am getting an Amiibo ad as I read this.
Why not have a store online that sells the amiibos?
They’re still going to sell out of amiibos by the time it’s open.
Are you a fortuneteller or just want to be funny?
Still waiting on my marth amiibo
It would be funny if they sold marth and villager and wii fit trainer again. People are paying ridiculous prices for them. Nintendo trolling at it’s best
They can’t be that hard. My cousin found a Marth 2 days ago at Toys R Us
They are pretty hard depending on how far you’re willing to travel :/ Most stores won’t give you the option to pick them up in-store nor buy them directly from them online so it’s basically on a whim.
Where I’m living there’s not a ghost of a chance to find them in stores and I’m restricted from buying from U.S retailers online, also there’s no Target stores so I’m forced to pre-order them directly in-store and left to miss out on a few releases anyways. Not every place will be as lucky. :(
well I hope they will have the idea to restock the amiibo and develop games which use those figures. I understand Nintendo can’t predict a success but now they need to address this.
In regards to the rare ones like Marth and WFT, I don’t think they’ll stop making those- there IS the upcoming Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem and I’m 99% sure the Marth Amiibo would do something with it, and WFT could be useful if/when there’s another Wii Fit game. But as a whole, Ninty needs to try harder at meeting demand if they can.
Just make enough amiibos so that people don’t have to pre-order just to not miss out. I owe SO much on my credit card from having to freakin’ pre-order so many. I still want Marth. Stores where I live never got ANY of them. And my niece wants a Villager amiibo. My brother missed out on the Wii Fit Trainer. None of this should have happened.
Look Reggie. Either tell us that certain amiibos will be back in stock or tell us that you’re not going to do so. End of conversation. Stop feeding our heads with this false hope nonsense
Hi, I do think thiѕ is a great web ѕite. I stumbleԀupon it ;) I

rich and continuе tо guiԁe other people.
You notice the demand, eh? THEN SEND OUT MORE SHIPMENTS OF CHARACTERS LIKE PIT!!! AND QUIT WITH THE IDEA OF FUCKING CARDS AS REPLACEMENTS WHEN THE MAIN REASON THESE THINGS ARE SELLING IS BECAUSE THEY ARE FIGURINES!!!
