Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball amiibo cards announced

6 special cards to collect

Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball is getting some fancy amiibo support. Konami has announced that a selection of amiibo cards are going to release for the game. The only catch is, five of the six cards are going to be retailer-exclusives. That'll make it awfully tough to get a full set.

What do these amiibo cards do? Tapping one to your controller nets you a very powerful item once a day, and also lets you load the item you have received in Treasure Mode onto your amiibo card. Details on where to get each card can be found below.

- amiibo card Pawapuro-Kun (included with all launch copies of the game)
- amiibo card Ikari Mamoru (pre-order bonus exclusive to Apita/Piago, Aeon, Toys R Us, Don Kihoote, HMV & Books Online, Konami Style)

Fans are wondering whether Super Mario Maker 2 supports amiibo


amiibo were a big part of the original Super Mario Maker, as they could be used to unlock various in-game costumes. When it comes to the sequel, we're yet to hear a peep about amiibo support. Now fans have been looking closer at the promo materials released, and wondering if amiibo will be supported at all.

All promotional materials for the game in Japan thus far haven't include any mention of amiibo. No pictures of amiibo, no details, and not a single amiibo logo in the fine print. Previous Switch releases that supported amiibo all included the amiibo logo, even on their earliest promotional materials. Either Nintendo is keeping the amiibo support this time around a secret, or it simply won't be included.

The rumored gold Shovel Knight amiibo is supposedly still on the way

I love goooooold

The gold Shovel Knight amiibo has been a rumor for a very long time now. We haven't heard any confirmation on this amiibo's existence from Yacht Club, yet the rumors still persist. While we wait for an official announcement, retail chain information points to a release fairly soon.

Various retail supply chains have heard that the gold Shovel Knight amiibo is going to see release sometime in June 2019. With a rumored launch in June, a reveal at E3 2019 would make some sense!

Reggie shares another touching gift he received for his retirement

RIP Iwata

Reggie may have saved the best retirement gift for last. As you can see, Reggie received a custom Iwata amiibo from Nintendo's David Young. The amiibo was created by the amazing MissGandaKris, who has created some fantastic custom amiibo in the past. This is probably her best work yet, and that's saying a lot!

Random Time! - Amazon accidentally sends customer several Ken amiibo

A user by the name of @AWDtwit on Twitter just wanted to order a Ken amiibo via Amazon. Amazon fulfilled his wish, and then they proceeded to mail him about a dozen more Ken amiibo. Would it be wiser to try to send to send the amiibo back, or would it be wiser to train all of the amiibo in Super Smash Bros. and see which one comes out on top? 

No, Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster does not have amiibo functionality

That amiiblows

There's a bit of confusion going around with Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster, as the North American retail box states that the game includes amiibo support. This seems to be nothing more than a printing error, as game boxes from other regions do not include the amiibo mention. This will likely get fixed in the next printing of Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster, as long as their is one!
