Outfit swap DLC for Smash Bros. would make a lot of money

[Image by Pitarou] The amiibo craze doesn't seem to have died down yet. My guess is that once Nintendo has released 50 different figures, amiibo fans will start to look at all the fun-but-relatively-worthless figures they've ...

New Mario amiibo temporarily exclusive to Mario Party 10 bundle

Mario Party 10 is getting its own line of amiibo, lest Nintendo not have multiple $13 red plumber toys to peddle. Amazon put up listings for Peach, Yoshi, Bowser, Luigi, and Toad. Every one excep...

Here's when GameStop is planning on getting shipments for amiibo Wave 3

There's an internal memo going around from GameStop that highlights estimated arrival dates for the upcoming amiibo Wave 3. I have confirmed this memo with an internal source at the retailer. This is the gist. Bowser will arr...

The Etsy crowd is making some great custom amiibo

We post a lot of amiibo stuff on Destructoid, and when I say we, I mean "not me." That ends today. I couldn't pass up this chance to highlight the custom amiibo scene on Etsy. The results are admittedly hit or miss -- this is Etsy -- but even the misses have a certain humorous charm to them. Let's take a look. [Header image: Alltheapplesdoubled]

Little Mac's true calling revealed photo
Little Mac's true calling revealed
by Jonathan Holmes

Believe it or not, but someone at Nintendo actually liked the Captain Falcon's ass tribute amiibo video we did last month. Thanks to that happenstance, I ended up with an extra Little Mac amiibo a couple of days ago. I felt it was my solemn duty to take this fortuitous event as an opportunity for video production, but how do you follow something like Captain Falcon's ass? Rapping about parts of Mac's body would just end up feeling derivative and tacked on.

Or would it? 

If Nintendo likes this episode of Samba de Amiibo as much as the original, then expect to see more amiibo music videos from Destructoid in the future. I'm also thinking of pitching Samus and Sagat to them for release on Nintendo Video. Do you think they'll go for it?

Report: Rosalina is coming to Target on January 30

Nintendo is still quiet on the exact release dates of many upcoming amiibo. It's really annoying. But thanks to an intrepid Target employee, we may have our first lead on Rosalina. As we know, she is exclusive to Target, and ...

Those Mario Party 10 amiibo are up on Amazon

It was announced last week that Mario Party 10 would be getting its own amiibo line. The good news is that every existing character in said sub-series (Peach, Yoshi, Bowser, Luigi, and Mario) would be interchangeable wit...

Amockup: Nintendo's best amiibo wave yet, courtesy of dril

People are always saying, "I don't get Twitter," a bit too proudly, like when congress folk boast about their Internet illiteracy before agreeing to Internet legislation. I respond with pet pictures and great jokes, but they'...

People bought many a Wii U and amiibo in 2014

According to a media release from Nintendo, the Wii U sold almost 30 percent more hardware and over 75 percent more games in 2014 than the previous year, likely fueled by the one-two punch of Mario Kart 8 (1.7 million physica...

Target to close all 133 stores in Canada, where the Rosalina amiibo is exclusive

Things haven't been looking good for Nintendo and its retailer-exclusive amiibo initiative. Toys"R"Us has bungled pre-orders so many times it's hard to tell if anyone will actually get their  Lucario amiibo at this point...

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker will get amiibo support on March 20

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker will be getting its long-awaited amiibo support on March 20. The game will use the new Toad amiibo, which is set to arrive as part of the Mario-specific line. This must be why Nintendo has been quiet about amiibo support for the game -- it was waiting to announce the all-new Mario figures. It makes sense, since Toad isn't a Super Smash Bros. fighter.

Man hate-buys Rosalina & Luma amiibo in bulk so fans can't have them

As with any collector craze, amiibo are being hit hard by the resell market -- a group of people that buy as many as possible only to flip them for a substantial profit. Most see it purely as business, but one man's driven by...
