Empty your pockets once more
During the Nintendo Spotlight and subsequent Treehouse Live, Nintendo made various announcements from new games to remakes and finally new amiibo figures. For those of you who thought the collection was complete now that Nintendo had finished with all of the Smash Bros. characters, guess again.
With the demonstrations of the Super Mario Galaxy, Fire Emblem Warriors, Metroid Prime 4 and Metroid: Samus Returns, and the DLC of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild came an assortment of new amiibo figures that will soon adorn your shelves (or wedding cake).
The Champions of Hyrule take center stage with Daruk, Revali, Mipha, and Urbosa each being immortalized into an amiibo figure. Not only will you be able to own each, but based on the information from the story-DLC coming this Holiday season, Nintendo implied that these champions’ story will be fleshed out, adding a much needed backstory to Link’s friends.
The Super Mario amiibo enshrine gaming’s most famous power couple and give an excuse for nerds everywhere to feature their favorite Nintendo mascot on top of their wedding cake. Joining them is Bowser in his ‘Wedding Crasher’ outfit, Koopa Troopa, and Goomba (not the one from the Super Mario Bros. movie, thank God).
Fire Emblem Warriors’ foray into the tactical hack-and-slash genre made famous by the Dynasty Warriors series and recently visited by The Legend of Zelda cast in Hyrule Warriors has prompted the creation of two amiibo figures celebrating both Chrom and Tiki.
Finally, the mother of all bombs was dropped not once, but twice during the Nintendo Spotlight and Treehouse Live. Not only did we finally receive official confirmation from Nintendo that they are working on Metroid Prime 4 in the way of a logo, but later on we got both a trailer and gameplay for Metroid: Samus Returns, and Nintendo is celebrating this announcement with two amiibo figures.
These figures honor the Metroid creature and Samus crouching in the same pose made famous on the Metroid 2: Return of Samus cover.
Nintendo Treehouse continues today and tomorrow, and this article will be updated with additional amiibo figures if Nintendo does decide to showcase more.
