During Nintendo's Digital Event at E3 2014, fans were treated to a first look at Amiibos, Nintendo's version of figurines that will work across various Wii U games, as well as their actual functionality in games like Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U.
Nintendo never specified when we'd be seeing them, but considering that Super Smash Bros. would be the first game to utilize them, it's only safe to assume we'll see them later this year. UK website ShopTo however is already offering these figurines for pre-order, giving us a glimpse at their pricing.
Priced at £12.85, we can assume that like Skylanders or Disney Infinity figures, they'll go for $12.99 – $14.99 when they're available here.
While Super Smash Bros. will be the first game to utilize Amiibos, Mario Kart 8 will get added support for these figurines. The rest of the available figures for pre-order can be seen below. Surely, I can't be the only one who wants to collect all of these for display, regardless of their in-game functionality.
