Nintendo has told GameSpot that it will continue to supply Amiibo toys to retailers, following confusion that some figures had been discontinued already.
US retailer Video Game Plus stated that some Amiibo toys – including Fire Emblem star Marth, Villager from Animal Crossing and the Wii Fit Trainer would be discontinued. It was something initially corroborated and then denied by Nintendo US.
Now Nintendo Europe has issued the following statement to clear up the situation.
Nintendo of Europe would like to confirm that supplies of Amiibo are currently available in the European market. Amiibo have been very popular at launch and as such it’s always possible that a few retailers may have sold out. We are continually aiming to always have a regular supply of Amiibo brought into the marketplace and there are many waves of Amiibo to come."
Now that seems to suggest that the toys will be replenished. But as Nintendo stops short of actually naming Amiibo toys, it’s not quite that clear. Nobody is questioning whether Nintendo will replenish Amiibo toys, rather, they’re questioning whether Nintendo will replenish ALL Amiibo toys.
Amiibo will work with a number of Nintendo games across both Wii U and 3DS, including Super Smash Bros for Wii U, Mario Kart 8 and Hyrule Warriors.
