The first dozen amiibo figures are now available for pre-order on Amazon! Each is currently priced at $12.99 with no word on a release date.

The selection includes the following:

  • Peach
  • Donkey Kong
  • Fox
  • Kirby
  • Link
  • Mario
  • Marth
  • Pikachu
  • Samus
  • Villager
  • Wii Fit Trainer
  • Yoshi

What are amiibo? They’re character statues with near field communication tech built into their base. In the new Super Smash Bros. games you can use an amiibo figure to summon the corresponding character to your aid. The stats of said character will improve as you use them, and they can grow to level 50.

Pre-order yours here!

Why do these things seem familiar? Following in the success of games like Skylanders and Disney Infinity before it, amiibo is Nintendo’s version of collectible figurines that enhance the way people play their games.
