Nintendo Will Release Limited Edition Amiibos Says Iwata


In addition to their regular line-up of Amiibo figurines, Nintendo will also produce limited edition Amiibos, president Satoru Iwata said to investors this week.


“The amiibo figure lineup for Super Smash Bros. will continue to be released even after this year-end sales season, and we hope that this will help to update store shelves,” Iwata said. “As store shelf space is limited, some amiibo will remain stocked on the shelves as staple choices while some will be limited-time offers which will cede their positions to new ones once they are sold out.”


He added, “With these offerings, I believe the Nintendo characters lined up on shelves, which usually only contain standard-sized boxes, will have an outstanding presence, and this means a lot to us.”
