That Greninja amiibo went up for pre-order last night for around 15 minutes, and sold out

Yesterday the Greninja amiibo was discovered to be a Toys"R"Us exclusive, and customer service confirmed to multiple websites that it would go on sale on their website from "7-9 AM EST" this morning. But because nothing ...

Here's the full rundown on all the Wave 4 amiibo madness today, including GameStop's plan photo
Here's the full rundown on all the Wave 4 amiibo madness today, including GameStop's plan
by Chris Carter

[Update: I went in-store to scope the situation out and see what I could get at GameStop. I waited two hours as the fourth person in line. The first two got the $77.94 Smash amiibo bundle. The third only got the Splatoon 3-pack, as did I. That took two hours to happen. Robin and Lucina sold out very quickly, which apparently delayed or canceled all of the bundle pack orders that were in the process of going through. Most of the line simply left the store in disgust.

Slow servers have been reported across the country for in-store orders, and I've seen pictures of knocked over displays and confirmation of at least one store ejecting an irate customer. From what I've heard from sources, this is such a mess that GameStop.com pre-orders won't even go up today. We'll provide updates as they occur, but if you really want these things, you may want to keep your eyes open on the site anyway. Based on this Facebook message it isn't looking good.]

Today is going to be the craziest day yet for amiibo. Wave 4 is set to go live, and in addition to an up-in-the-air Jigglypuff Target exclusive, it looks like Greninja pre-orders will appear sometime tomorrow at Toys"R"Us.

Beyond that, pre-orders for Ness (GameStop exclusive), Robin, Charizard, Pac-Man, Lucina, Wario, Inkling Boy, Inkling Girl, and the Splatoon 3-pack will drop today. I spent all morning making calls and contacting sources, and here's what I found.

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker's amiibo functionality adds a small incentive to replay every level photo
Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker's amiibo functionality adds a small incentive to replay every level
by Chris Carter

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker launched its amiibo compatibility this week, and I've found a new reason to revisit the game. It's as simple as adding in a "Hide-and-Seek" mode, enabled by tapping the newly minted Toad amiibo to the GamePad as you're selecting each stage.

After a quick tap the minigame will start, tasking you to find a "Pixel Toad" while playing the level as normal. All you have to do is locate it and tap it on the GamePad to complete the extra mission. Hide-and-Seek will work with all three core episodes, but it is not compatible with the bonus stages. After finding the Pixel Toad, you'll earn a new stamp in your notebook for that page.

NES-era Godzilla immortalized as an action figure

NECA is on a roll with these videogame-inspired toys, though admittedly Godzilla looks a bit like he's decked out in camouflage here. The 6" figure is modeled after Godzilla: Monster of Monsters, and it comes packaged in a cool faux-weathered box based on the NES game's cover art. It's expected to ship in July 2015, and pre-orders are open for $21.99. Don't make eye contact. [Via Super Punch]

Fire Emblem amiibo support for Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. doesn't add much photo
Fire Emblem amiibo support for Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. doesn't add much
by Chris Carter

Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. is out, and you can read the full verdict here on the core game. Of course, where there is amiibo functionality to be covered, I'll be there.

Right now, Code Name supports four total figures -- Marth, Ike, Robin, and Lucina. As of this week only the former two are actually out, with the latter pair launching in April. As such, I'll be covering Marth and Ike here, and cover Robin and Lucina at a later date.

Got it? Good.

Nice troll, Best Buy

I got this email earlier today. But it is too late, Best Buy. It's always too late for retailer exclusive amiibo. Earlier today Nintendo also tweeted out a link to the Gold Mario Walmart listing -- about an hour after it...
