September Amiibo Wave

 

Nintendo has revealed a September launch window for the next wave of Amiibo figurines. This upcoming wave of Amiibo includes Bowser Jr., Dr. Mario, Ganondorf, 30th Anniversary Mario Classic Color, Olimar, Zero Suit Samus, and will launch right alongside of Super Mario Maker on September 11th. However, these six will not be the only Amiibo to launch during the month of September. The “Retro 3-Pack” will arrive on September 25th, featuring Game & Watch, Duck Hunt, and R.O.B. These two groups of Amiibos launching in September will enable you to add 9 more Amiibos to your collection by the end of September. That is, if you are willing to fight the initial rush to get them. Whether or not that is worth it is up to you.

There is also the “Mario Modern Color” Amiibo, which has not been given a release date just yet. Note that this is NOT the same thing as the “30th Anniversary Mario Classic Color” Amiibo, which is the 8-bit Mario Amiibo. According to Nintendo, information on the release date of the “Mario Modern Color” Amiibo figurine will be revealed in “the future”. Of course “the future” is a very vague statement, so we will have to wait and see on that one.

Amiibo have been around for almost a year now, and some gamers feel that they are overpriced or simply aren’t being used in games to their full potential. And of course, no one could possibly forget the plethora of supply issues that Nintendo has had with Amiibo so far. Hopefully Nintendo can address some of the community’s concerns with regards to Amiibo in the future. In spite of those issues, Amiibo are undoubtedly a great collector’s item whether you think they have problems or are fine just the way they are.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.

    I want them all

  • DariusQ

    Already imported 5A/B from Japan and judging from the last release it was probably a good move. Stock of new Amiibos has improved certainly but still nowhere near fulfilling demand. ZSS and Ganondorf will be highly sought after and most certainly have insufficient supply.

    Game and watch is supposed to have multiple poses. I wonder if they are going to be included with the three pack.

    I already have wave 5a/b but I will buy multiple ZSSs
