Nintendo Apologises for Lack of Amiibo Stock

Nintendo has released today a new statement on Facebook regarding the lack of specific figures being available in the company’s Amiibo range.

The newest wave of Amiibo figures, as well as past figures, have “exceeded our expectations,” Nintendo claims, with the publisher apologising for the inconvenience its caused to consumers.

“We’re trying to meet the demands of our fans and consumers by increasing the amount of Amiibo we manufacture and ship to retail,” Nintendo said.

“We may continue to see consumer demand outpace supply levels for certain characters at times, but we will do our best to prevent that from happening.”

While Nintendo is preparing to restock its Amiibo figures, the company also revealed that Animal Crossing Amiibo cards will be released before the end of 2015, which will continue to “enhance gameplay experiences” with Amiibos.

Since Nintendo unveiled Amiibos at E3 last year, the figure line has sold more than 200,000 units in France and over five million Amiibos worldwide.

Amiibos, which work with either Nintendo 3DS or Wii U titles, already include a range of well-known Nintendo characters and mascots, including Link (the best-selling figure in U.S., Canada, Europe and Japan), Yoshi, Mario, Donkey Kong and Samus.
