Nintendo has announced that the sales of its Amiibo figures have doubled the game sales of the Super Smash Bros. game on the Wii U. (1.3 million copies).
Nintendo Amiibos are a range of action figurines that can unlock extra content in Nintendo games when you tap them on the Wii U GamePad’s built-in NFC reader. Nintendo’s 3DS also includes NFC support, and the company plans on creating an adapter for older gaming models.
Nintendo stated last month, that its figure sales were closely equal to its game sales. It seems as if gaming fans are apparently buying more action figures now. Even though some figures are discontinued, you may still get lucky and find a few on eBay. Who knows you might even find a rare figure.
