Nintendo fans are salivating as the first 12 amiibo interactive figures become available for pre-order starting today. At a suggested retail price of just $12.99 each, even those that don’t own a Wii U may not be able to resist having their favorite mascots on their desks or shelves. Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, which launches this holiday season, will be the first game with full integration of amiibo functionality. Other games that will support amiibo include Mario Kart 8, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Mario Party 10 and Yoshi’s Woolly World, with more to come. The first dozen characters available for pre-order at select retailers are:
- Donkey Kong
- Wii Fit Trainer
Of course, many more will be released in the future. Once we discover what those “select retailers” are (not Amazon at the moment), we’ll be sure to let you know!
