Next Amiibo Wave Revealed
New batch of toys due to launch later this year, from Toad to the Super Mario series.
Nintendo on Wednesday made a pair of Amiibo-related reveals during its Nintendo Direct briefing, including details about the next wave of toys and the announcement of a "Super Mario Series."
First, the next wave of Amiibo toys, due out this spring, will include:
The Super Mario Series of Amiibo, meanwhile, will include many of the same Super Smash Bros. Amiibo toys, but in new poses. Nintendo says that the characters Amiibo will be interchangeable, so a Super Smash Bros. Mario will interact with games in the same way as the new Super Mario Series Mario.
The full list of Super Mario Series Amiibo, coming March 20, will be:
- Princess Peach Bowser
The newly announced Toad Amiibo will update functionality for Captain Toad Treasure Tracker. Using the character will hide a pixelated Toad in each stage for you to find.
The Super Mario series will be compatible with the upcoming Mario Party 10. Rosalina and Luma, Donkey Kong, and Wario will also work with the party game. However, you'll need to erase a figure's Smash Data to use it with Mario Party.
