Nintendo has announced that our lord and savior and one true amiibo, Marth, will be back in stores in late April. A little late for him and his friend Ike to join the fight in Code Name: S.T.E.A.M., which will have already been released in March.
Finally, our prayers to Reggie have worked. Praise to Iwata. May our enemies' amiibo burn in hell.

Of course, this figure makes me lament the fact that Lucina doesn't have a mask-variant costume in Smash Bros. read
