RUMOR - Nintendo enforcing 1 amiibo per customer rule in UK, Target not replenishing Wave 4 amiibo after launch
Nintendo UK has sent new rules to major UK gaming retailers. They are now actively enforcing the 1 amiibo per customer rule forcibly.— Tamaki (@Doctor_Cupcakes) May 23, 2015
They are well aware of scalping and this is part of an effort to slash the reselling market. Online and offline.— Tamaki (@Doctor_Cupcakes) May 23, 2015
I am leaking this from an internal message sent to GAME. Nintendo is fighting scalping. Spread the word!— Tamaki (@Doctor_Cupcakes) May 23, 2015
The UK rumor is good news...the Target rumor is bad news! Looks like Wave 4 amiibo are going to be a struggle to find, just like all other waves.
Coming from an EDGE interview with Nintendo producer Takashi Tezuka and executive producer Etsunobu Ebisu from Good-Feel...
We’ve always felt that Yoshi deserves to have a handcrafted feel to the graphics, and we’ve strived to bring this into games like Yoshi’s Island and Yoshi’s Story. With those previous titles, it was just that – an aesthetic – and didn’t really have much influence on the gameplay itself. - Tezuka
We decided to use wool in Yoshi’s Woolly World since we felt we’d be able to provide some interesting mechanics and gameplay that we weren’t able to do in previous games. But it was also the toughest challenge we’ve faced! - Ebisu
Looks like we have another top-tier indie game coming to Wii U. The Kickstarter for Little Devil Inside ended while managing to surpass the Wii U stretch goal. No word on release date or anything like that, but the game is definitely heading Wii U's way!
The new Skylanders game is coming to all the regular platforms. The gimmick this time will be vehicles. #leaked— Tamaki (@Doctor_Cupcakes) May 23, 2015
This isn't the first time we've heard this rumor. On top of that, Doctor Cupcakes knows his stuff when it comes to info like this, so I'd consider these details a lock.
