Look forward to Yoshi, Pokemon, and Earthbound amiibo soon

If you’ve somehow completed your amiibo collection or are just craving a new batch of Nintendo characters to get excited about, you won’t have to wait long. Tons of new amiibo are coming from all over the Nintendo library, as well one from another classic gaming property.

Nintendo announced as part of the Nintendo Direct presentation yesterday that we can look forward to a new batch in May, including Charizard, Greninja, Jigglypuff, Wario, Robin, Lucina and Ness. Dark Pit and Palutena hit in July, while Zero Suit Samus, Ganondorf, Olimar, Dr. Mario and Bowser Jr. show up in September to kick off the fall season.

Alongside these, some game-specific amiibo will launch as well. Splatoon is getting a set of three amiibo. Inkling boy, Inkling girl, and a Squid amiibo will launch alongside the game on May 29th. Yoshi’s Wooly World gets three Yarn Yoshi amiibo on June 26, and then Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer will be the first game to get card amiibo when it launches this fall.

The Ness figure from Earthbound is apparently a GameStop exclusive, so a few gamers might have to call off feuds if they want to get that particular figure.

Jigglypuff, on the other hand, is exclusive to Target stores.

The Marth amiibo will see new stock sometime in May as well. No word on other characters yet.
