Japan Getting Amiibo Diorama Kits



This just in, Japan (those lucky gamers) will be getting Amiibo diorama kits to showcase their collectable figures. I think this is an incredible idea and hope the big N decides to release these in the West. These nifty Amiibo diorama Kits will feature scenes from Super Smash Bros and Kirby’ sky of Dreamland. Only time will tell if they are released outside Japan but I could see this type of thing being a GOLD MINE for Nintendo.

Would you pick one up?

North American Amiibo Holiday Commercial

Nintendo has put out a new North American Amiibo Holiday Commercial for everyone to watch. The 30 second spot showcases the popular toys from Nintendo and will no doubt boost sales of the popular figures (we if they needed help). The new ad mentions the figures’ compatibility with both the New Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, but only begins to discuss a few of amiibo’s many features.

If you have 30 seconds, give the commercial a watch.
