And the top three selling amiibo figures are...

Ah, the amiibo saga. It's been a wild ride that not even Mr. Toad would go on. But as we continue through this tough journey together, Nintendo has sent word over that they are doing very well, and are "approximately equal" t...

Nintendo Download: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy

The Wii U isn't looking good this week. All you're getting is Lucadian Chronicles, Angry Birds Star Wars, and Angry Birds Trilogy. Yep. Seriously. The 3DS however is rocking it as usual. The big drops include Phoenix Wright: ...

Amiibogeddon continues: more conflicting reports on the Holy Trinity, GameStop says they're gone

Villager, Wii Fit Trainer, and Marth. Are they or aren't they discontinued? Recently, we've obtained conflicting information from Nintendo, PR, and multiple retail locations, so it's really hard to tell -- but we have a few m...

Super Smash Bros. causes surge in Wii U sales in Japan

The Japanese market certainly loves its handheld devices, but for at least one week, a console game is king. Super Smash Bros. for Wii U was the top selling title in Japan this week, moving 227,527 units in the first few...

Did you know there's a Chain Chomp in Hyrule Warriors?

I'm on track to put more time into Hyrule Warriors than any other videogame in 2014. This is coming from someone who has spent, at most, half an hour with Omega Force's past titles. I may not be a Dynasty Warriors fan -- and,...

Shantae and the Pirate's Curse may hit the Wii U this year

Shantae and the Pirate's Curse is a pretty great Metroidvania title that hit the 3DS earlier this year. It was a continuation of the series following Risky's Revenge, and will lead into Half-Genie Hero which hopeful...

Amiibogeddon update: Toys "R" Us no longer carrying the 'holy trinity'

[Image assistance from CJ Melendez] We've yet to get a straight answer from Nintendo about the Villager, Wii Fit Trainer, and Marth Amiibo's collective status on the endangered toy species list. First we hear they are discont...

Act Fast! Lucario amiibo available for pre-order again on Toys "R" Us website

Jeez, these amiibo things sure are popular, huh? Grab your wallets and get to shopping, because the Lucario amiibo (Toys "R" Us exclusive) is back in stock at the Toys "R" Us website. Just yesterday, these figures were completely sold out on there, so you should probably act pretty fast if you want to snag one for yourself.

Europe gets Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire on Wii U this week

A new pinball game out of Nintendo sure would be delightful. The time is right (because the time is always right for well-made pinball spinoff games). I don't see that happening anytime soon, granted, but there's always Pok&e...

Nintendo reportedly discontinues Marth, Wii Fit Trainer & Villager amiibo (update)

Update: Nintendo released an official statement to Destructoid on the supposed "discontinued" figures and, well, it's looking like they are "likely" gone. "We will aim for certain amiibo to always be available. These wil...

This Lucina figure is looking pretty damn great

Japan is getting an amazing Figma figure next year -- Lucina from Fire Emblem: Awakening. It's up for pre-order now from retailers like AmiAmi, and it'll drop in April 2015. I think I'm going to have the mask on permanently -- it looks too cool. Of course, this figure makes me lament the fact that Lucina doesn't have a mask-variant costume in Smash Bros.

Toys "R" Us' exclusive Lucario amiibo is sold out online

I really like covering toys on Destructoid. I get to talk to a ton of like-minded collectors, share shopping strategies, and the community in general always comes together to help one another. It's a feel-good experience even...

Looks like those amiibos aren't really discontinued

Maybe I'm just being overly cautious, but it's almost impossible to know what to believe on the internet, so take this with a grain of salt. A screengrab of a email from Nintendo of America's David Young has popped up on NeoG...

Best Buy opens up pre-orders for Meta Knight amiibo

During my day one amiibo hunting trip, I noticed that Best Buy wasn't particularly on the ball. Multiple stores in my area didn't even stock Wii Fit Trainer or Villager, and Marth came up as "Martha" on one of the Best Buy in...

What would you want out of an amiibo focused game?

The jury is still out on the success of Amiibo. Although certain figures have pretty much sold out, we don't know if that's because they were "incredibly popular" or just "made scarce by design".  Regardless, it's clear ...
