Nintendo provides a disappointing update over the upcoming Amiibo launches
Fans of Nintendo Super Smash Bros Ultimate have been patiently waiting for information about the next batch of amiibum figures based on the game. Tonight, Nintendo revealed that the min-min figure will be launched on April 29. The Brazos The character was originally going to be launched along with Amiibo based on Minecraft of Steve and Alex, but unfortunately those figures have been delayed and will now be launched later in the year. Nintendo attributed the announcement to “a delay in logistics and production”, but did not give more information. With luck, the figures will arrive at the stores earlier than late!
Nintendo tweets on the next amiibo batch can be found embedded below.
At this time, it is not clear whether Steve and Alex’s delays could have an impact on the rest of the amiibum that have been announced for this year. Figures based on Sephiroth, Pyra and Mythra, and Kazuya were announced last October. A specific launch window was never revealed for those figures, apart from the fact that they were destined to launch later in the year. It is not clear if the delay of Steve and Alex could make others delay, possibly until 2023, or if the Minecraft characters will now be launched along with the rest. The vagueness in the Nintendo Declaration makes it a bit difficult to suppose.
The Nintendo Amiibo line has been strengthened since 2014. The initial wave was launched together with super smash Bros. for Wii U and over the years the line has been expanded to offer figures based on other games, including The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The savage and terror Metroide. Since then, Nintendo has created Amiibo Figures for almost all playable wrestlers in Super Smash Bros Ultimate. So far, the only fighter who has not announced an amiibo is Sora. It is very likely that the character of Kingdom Hearts also receives plastic treatment, but today’s news makes it difficult to say exactly when it could happen. With luck, Nintendo will not make the fans too much for an advertisement!
