Yeah, I forgot that part. Here's a helpful chart for wave 1 of Amiibo's.

Thanks for that. Ended up grabbing Mario. Will likely grab Yoshi as well.

Only three with Mario Party and one with Yoshi's Woolly World?

What are Nintendo doing? They're starting to really mess it up.

I respectfully disagree. The fact that some of them work for more than one game to begin with is a bonus and makes them a much better value than any Skylander or DI figure.

The problem I have is besides Smash they don't do anything but give you extra costumes or an item.

I imagine they'll expand on that moving forward.

I think all the figures should be compatible with all the games. Only three of them compatible with one game is not enough.

Weird that Villager isn't compatible with MK8 when he's a playable character.

I'm still annoyed no Wario announcement.

If Nintendo were smart, they would've made Amiibo's as a physical form of buying DLC.

Example: If I wanna buy the Hyrule DLC for Mario Kart 8, I buy the Link Amiibo and it will let me download it (each Amiibo has a unique code, you'd just be confirming/registering your amiibo to the Nintendo Shop/Miiverse and thus allowing you to download), or come out with special edition Amiibo's, like in this case a special Link on his bike Amiibo.


Or for say Super Smash Bros., with the announcement of Mewtwo being a DLC soon, you'd buy a Mewtwo Amiibo and boom he's now in the game. Or a Waluigi Amiibo! lol

I'm looking for Villager and Marth. I've seen Wii Fit Trainer a few times and probably should have picked her up since she is the third of the hard to find characters (although it would appear to be the easiest of the three)

Nintendo is discontinuing some of them already so I'd make sure you grab them now. Not sure which ones are going though.

I believe Nintendo said the lesser characters will go first. So those 3 would be in danger and I believe Nintendo already mentioned those 3.

I would like to get Marth though and maybe Villager.

I would love to get some but then I would have to get them all. I also wouldn't take them out of the packaging so they'd take up more room than I'd like. I've held off so far.

Apparently the discontinued characters will later be available as cards in order to use them for games. I think someone at Nintendo is failing to understand why people are actually buying these figures. I'm sure some of the audience wants them to unlock in the games but certainly not the majority. Stupid decision on Nintendo's part. Flushing potential money down the drain.

I think based on smash community that Villager has a huge cult following.

Villager and Wii fit are characters that are out of the ordinary but people want to master and win with to make that guy that picks Captain Falcon go damn.

I have not played man Wario mains but the ones I have were not that great. Seems when people play my Wario main we end up playing 15 times in a row lol.

Also in hindsight I never thought Amiibos would be THIS popular.
