Hive Jump, coming in 2016 on Wii U, has amiibo support


Looks like a cool shooter
Aug 28
// Chris Carter
Watching this trailer for Hive Jump brings me back to old school shooters like the ones based on the Aliens franchise. I'm really loving the art direction, focus on multiplayer, and gunplay, but it appears as if we...

Now that the Shovel Knight amiibo is officially official, the floodgates have presumably been opened for other indie collaborations. While we aren't 100% sure that he'll appear in Super Smash Bros. as a guest character, ...

Walmart's selling the Marth amiibo at a 115 percent mark-up


$27.99, and MSRP is $12.99
Aug 26
// Brett Makedonski
This is rather unusual. We're accustomed to scalpers selling rare amiibo for far more than their retail price, but now Walmart's getting in on the act. Yes, it seems the world's largest private employer is price gouging for N...

Aug 19
// Chris Carter
Picross is a series you don't hear about too often, but it has a rather loving fanbase. You're about to get some love back in the form of a new game, which is heading to the 3DS in October in Japan. Set to debut on the first of the month, it will launch for 3,000 yen, and will be available both digitally and physically. Hopefully it arrives overseas!

Walmart is listing Animal Crossing amiibo cards on its website for $5.96 for a pack of six, so essentially a dollar a card. That isn't that surprising as they go for around the same price when imported from Japan, though...
