The Zelda trio just hit, here’s what’s next for amiibo

Let’s take a look

We’ve been keeping you abreast of just about every amiibo happening since the “Holy Trinity” debacle, and it feels good. I’ve met so many great people as a result of this wretched hobby, and it still isn’t over yet. While I initially thought that Nintendo had cooled down on amiibo several months ago, they went and announced six exclusives (a practice they hadn’t done in over a year) and 13 more figures were revealed at E3. So what’s next now that the Zelda trio just dropped at Best Buy, Amazon and GameStop?

Well, we have the two variations each of Cloud, Corrin and Bayonetta coming up on July 21, which have one exclusive each called the “Player 2” version (Cloud = GameStop, Corrin = Amazon, Bayonetta = Best Buy). That same day a new Splatoon trio will arrive that includes the Inkling Girl, Boy and Squid. On July 28 a single figure that houses five Pikmin will hit that interfaces with both Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and the upcoming Hey! Pikmin 3DS game.

Fast-forwarding to September 15 there’s a Metroid (the creature, which can’t crawl by the way)/Samus two-pack. On October 27 Wedding Mario, Peach and Bowser will hit for Super Mario Odyssey, and sometime in the undisclosed future (presumably for the launch of Fire Emblem Warriors) Chrom and Tiki. Finally, there’s four more Breath of the Wild amiibo with a mystery 2017 window (likely alongside of the second DLC for Breath) and the Koopa and Goomba figures that are compatible with Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions, the remake announced at E3.

As soon as new amiibo are announce I add them to this list, so feel free to keep it bookmarked!
