Amiibo Pre-Order Status Update - Feb 11, 2015
Once again, it is a sad moment for us to share with you that we are unable to fulfill any orders for the US region amiibos. Because of the supply shortage from Nintendo, we regret having to inform you that all pre-orders right now are on hold and are on back-ordered status.
Unlike other major American retailers, we have not yet canceled any orders, only because we have been seeking new suppliers from Australia and the United Kingdom, as they have expressed to us that there is a possibility of being able to get these coveted region free figurines.
And like other retailers, Nintendo never gave us an indication that the stock levels would be so dangerously low, and we only opened pre-orders under the guarantee from our previous suppliers that we would be able to get them. As such, recent updates have left things in the current state; despite this, we are always trying our best to honor our customers' needs.
The only official update from Nintendo regarding future reprints of the amiibos have been from an Associated Press Interview with Shigeru Miyamoto, and the following was answered:
AP: If you discontinue certain "amiibo" figures, will you continue to include them digitally in future games?
Miyamoto: We're not making promises for certain figures, but the way "amiibo" is designed is that certain games can have "amiibo" specifically for that game. Other games can take advantage of past "amiibo" that developers want to make their game compatible with. In the future, we have the option, if certain "amiibo" figures are no longer available in stores, to release an "amiibo" in card form with the same functionality.
Regardless, we know how much people want these figures, and we will keep you all updated when we receive confirmation from our suppliers. Please understand that if we cannot get them we will ultimately have to cancel the pre-orders, but before that happens, we will try our utmost best to source the amiibos as soon as possible.
We thank you for all the patience you've given us, and we appreciate your understanding regarding the amiibo shortage.
The following US region amiibos have been affected by the shortage:
