5 new Splatoon amiibo are arriving on July 8th, 2 based on the Squid Sisters and the other 3 are alt. colours of the original 3 amiibo.

Apparently they've warned the recoloured ones will be available in 'limited quantities'. Here we go again... :roll:

They typically announce the release dates on a Direct, so I'd imagine they'll do that. Next month sees the Kirby range then July the new Splatoon range, so maybe August? Typically the month of summer drought anyway...

Oh, I finally got an Amiibo - the Wolf Link that came with Twilight Princess HD.

I actually bought it (via the Twilight Princess HD pack) a month before Breath of the Wild came out, but have yet to put it to use in either game yet.

cloud, bayonetta and corin sold out not long after the pre- orders went live. I think I read bayonetta sold out in 10 minutes?..

I got to the site 20 mins after they went live and ordered the whole set to complete my Smash Collection.

Also one thing to look out for, Asda have reduced the price of the Donkey Kong amiibo from the Super Mario set to a quid. I kid you not. :lol:

ah fair enough. I read this on reddit from the word of mouth of someone else, so I guess he wasn't being entirely honest or just experiencing difficulties with purchasing bayonetta? I tried to order cloud on game later that day as they had pre-order purchase pages up and after I put in my card details it then went on to tell me that it has sold out.. so I don't know what happened there? whether I have just paid for an amiibo I won't get, or whether I will get it? or whether payment was denied? it said they take payment a week before it is scheduled to be sold iirc.

They usually don't take payment till the order is ready to go out the door. Shopto has sold out as well, despite being the £15 mark each, so I guess now its down to the Amazon listings or just popping into your local Game on launch day and hoping for the best.

Just a shame they've not been restocking that often as far as newer amiibo go. Both those Zelda Anniversary and BOTW amiibo have yet to be restocked... :/
