Nintendo’s Amiibo figures are selling out

So the launch of Nintendo’s Amiibo figure line went excellent for the company, however Marth, Wii Fit Trainer and Villager are already sold out all over North America, causing prices for the three figures to skyrocket on sites like eBay and Amazon.

There have been many conflicting reports on whether the figures were discontinued or just out of stock, causing more chaos among those who have yet to pick up these figures. In an email to Siliconera, Nintendo confirmed we may be seeing more released in the near future.

“Some amiibo were very popular at launch, and it is possible that some amiibo in the United States, Canada and Latin America may not be available right now due to high demand and our efforts to manage shelf space during the launch period. Certain sold-out amiibo may return to these markets at a later stage. We are continually aiming to always have a regular supply of amiibo in the marketplace and there are many waves of amiibo to come. The distribution and availability of amiibo in other regions around the world may be different.”

The availability part, I can confirm. While in Japan for the last few weeks, I saw shops carrying all three figures and recently Wave 2 in good supply, only to find out that back home you can’t find either three unless you are willing to shell out over $60 a piece.

So if you can wait, possibly untill after Christmas, you might just be able to get Marth, Wii Fit Trainer and Village at regular price.
