Launched in November 2014, Americans have demonstrated an insatiable thirst for amiibo. Many figures have sold out almost immediately upon release and have not been seen since. It makes you wonder how many figures would have sold if supply had met demand.
Nintendo also stated that Super Smash Bros. for Wii U has sold 1.5 million copies in the US. Uncle Sam sure does love him some Smash.
After seeing how difficult it is to obtain some of these figurines, I’m not surprised that sales are so high. I hope future waves of amiibo are easier to obtain, and considering the potential profits, I think Nintendo would agree.
