Power Button - Episode 172: The Woe Of Amiibo
April 07, 2015
Nintendo has found a new gold mine with its popular amiibo figurines featuring both popular characters like Mario and Link and more obscure, deep cut protagonists such as Ness and Lucina. Unfortunately, high demand and limited supply means that lots of amiibo fans are left empty-handed when it comes to acquiring everything on the wish list. On this week's Power Button podcast, we discuss the amiibo situation, outline just how it's all gone wrong for collectors and casual fans alike, and share our own stories about amiibo dreams going unfulfilled. Finally, I solve the amiibo problem once and for all with a foolproof way for Nintendo and retailers to make everybody happy with plenty of amiibo for all. Come home, Ness. We need you!
