With September quickly arriving, so is the anticipation for the newest line-up of amiibo’s that will be hitting the market starting September 11th. In the line-up you can see we will be getting some special ones for Super Smash Bros. such as Zero Suit Samus, Ganondorf, and Bowser Jr. while Nintendo also launches a Super Mario Bros. 30th anniversary series Mario amiibo that will follow the tradition of the NES graphics. Yes that means he’ll look like his 8-bit glorious self as an amiibo. Due to his uniqueness? We expect him to be the rarest one of this group, especially with him being fully compatible with the upcoming Super Mario Maker  for the Wii U console. Both the game and the amiibo figure will launch on the 11th of September.

Want to know who all is launching on September, 11th, 2015? Here you go:

  • 30th Anniversary Mario Classic Color
  • Zero Suit Samus
  • Ganondorf
  • Olimar
  • Bowser Jr.
  • Dr. Mario
On Sept. 25, a Retro 3 Pack will launch, which includes R.O.B., Duck Hunt and Mr. Game & Watch amiibo from the Super Smash Bros. series in a single package, which launched exclusively at GameStop as a pre-order capable set this morning.

Three figures based on Mii Fighters, which were previously announced for release in September, will now launch as a 3-Pack in November. More information about launch plans for the 30thAnniversary Mario Modern Color amiibo in North America will be shared in the future, and this is something we can only wait. Till then? Stay tuned.

Our Take: 
While it’s not a secret that amiibo’s are extremely popular, it seems that amiibo’s are being handled a bit better this time around, which seems to follow up from the rocky release of Lucina, Robin, Splatoon, and even previous ones such as Villager, we know that Nintendo is going through efforts to make amiibo’s match supply and demand. While some people still lose out, it seems re-stocks have become a bit more common in larger towns. The question is. Will this do something about the scalper market or are they helping it flourish? We’ll have to wait and find out.
