We take a look at a few different websites to work out if pre orders are live and where you’ll be able to get pre orders from.

Where Will You Be Able To Get A Splatoon 3 Amiibo Pre Order?

While pre orders for Splatoon 3 Amiibos are currently only available in Australia for some strange reason, you’ll be able to get them from the following places when stock is finally released into the wild:

  • Best Buy (US)
  • My Nintendo Store (UK)
  • My Nintendo Store (US)
  • Game. co.uk (UK)

Over on the Australian My Nintendo Store page the triple-figure set for Octoling, Inkling, and Smallfry is retailing for $69.95, which works out to around £40. That’s also equivalent to around $45 US.

It’s as yet unknown as to whether or not you’ll be able to buy these figures separately, or if you’ll be forced to buy them as part of a triple-pack. It’s not unlike Nintendo to make baffling decisions when it comes to their products, so it’s really a toss-up right now.

When Did Splatoon 3 Launch?

Splatoon 3 launched last month on the 9th of September, to near-universal critical acclaim. The game is due to get post-launch updates every three months, with large-scale paid DLC also planned for the future.

It’s unclear as to what this paid DLC will be currently, but we do know at least that the Amiibos will likely unlock special gear from owners of the figurines themselves, as a mild reward for buying them and to entice more people into purchasing them, but since these figures are often in short supply not many people will get the DLC itself.

Tears of the Kingdom’ Preorder Bonuses, Editions, Prices, and amiibo Details

News

Another open-world marvel in the works.

by Jess Reyes

Nintendo

So you want to buy Tears of the Kingdom? The Breath of the Wild sequel has been inching toward launch for years now, enough that it won The Game Awards’ Most Anticipated Game award. Now, Zelda fans can finally play it starting this spring. All there’s left to do is confirm what edition of the game to buy and what pre-order bonuses to consider. Here’s everything you need to know about pre-ordering and purchasing Tears of the Kingdom.

Hey, listen! While you’re here, check out our review of Tears of the Kingdom.

How much does each

Tears of the Kingdom version cost?

There are only two versions of Tears of the Kingdom: the Standard and Collector’s Edition. The Tears of the Kingdom Standard Edition costs $69.99. The Collector’s Edition costs nearly twice as much at $129. 99 but comes with loads of physical swag that the standard doesn’t have.

What is included in the

Tears of the Kingdom Collector’s Edition?

The Tears of the Kingdom Collector’s Edition includes:

  • Physical copy of the game
  • Artbook with concept art
  • SteelBook® case
  • Iconart steel poster
  • Four pin badges

Tears of the Kingdom Collector’s Edition listings have already appeared online. Many of them have already sold out, though. It’s unclear if they will restock or if any other retailers will start selling the Collector’s Edition at this time. Here’s a quick roundup of the listings that have gone live:

  • Best Buy – “Coming Soon”
  • GameStop – Sold out
  • Target – Sold out

These editions apparently aren’t shipping out until launch day, so anyone who ordered one will only be able to play the game at the same time as the Standard Edition buyers.

Does

Tears of the Kingdom have pre-order bonuses?

Yes, Tears of the Kingdom has pre-order bonuses, but only for physical copies so far. Nintendo hasn’t announced pre-order bonuses for digital versions at this time.

Many retailers have yet to announce their Tears of the Kingdom pre-order bonuses. GameStop is the only retailer that’s announced its pre-order bonus so far, but other retailers to watch include Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, and Target.

GameStop

GameStop offers a wooden plaque as a pre-order bonus for Tears of the Kingdom Standard or Collector’s Edition purchases. Anyone who pre-orders or purchases the game from GameStop qualifies for the bonus, but the plaques will only be available while supplies last. In that case, it’d be best to pre-order to secure your plaque, even if you can theoretically get it from purchasing Tears of the Kingdom in-store. In-store pickup starts on launch day.

Is there a

Tears of the Kingdom amiibo?

The Tears of the Kingdom amiibo features Link with his puzzling new arm outstretched.

Nintendo

Yes, the Tears of the Kingdom amiibo exists. The amiibo costs $15.99 for just the model itself. It’s a figure of Link in his Tears of the Kingdom outfit, posed with his mechanical hand striking forward. According to the official Tears of the Kingdom site, scanning the amiibo gives the user additional weapons and materials and special material fabric for Link’s paraglider.

You can buy the Tears of the Kingdom amiibo from these retailers:

  • GameStop – Available as of 2/15/2023
  • Best Buy – “Coming Soon”

It might also appear on other websites in the future, so watch for similar listings from places like Amazon, Walmart, and Target.

Is there a

Tears of the Kingdom Nintendo Switch?

There isn’t a Tears of the Kingdom Nintendo Switch…yet. An image of what appeared to be a Tears of the Kingdom-themed Nintendo Switch OLED appeared online earlier this year, prompting netizens to prepare for the possible special edition. It still hasn’t been confirmed as a real product, but the leaked images look very convincing. We’ll have to wait to see if it’s really coming.

Tears of the Kingdom will launch on May 12, 2023 for the Nintendo Switch.

Build your Animal Crossing amiibo collection before New Horizons arrives on Switch

Where to find all 16 Animal Crossing amiibo

With Animal Crossing: New Horizons on the horizon, it’s time to start celebrating and building your amiibo collection. Once you pre-order Animal Crossing for Switch, how else can you prove your fandom with a wallet?

If you are anything like us, you have watched Animal Crossing: New Horizons Nintendo Direct February 20 and immediately opened another tab to start buying adorable collectibles. They are priced around $10, making it easy to justify impulsive purchases.

There are no new amiibo for New Horizons , but Nintendo released 16 Animal Crossing amiibo in 2015-16, all of which you can see below. Since they are several years old, you will not find them everywhere. However, almost all Animal Crossing amiibo are still available online (except for Isabelle in her summer outfit – she’s not in our collection either, so eBay might be her best bet).

How amiibo work in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

In New Horizons , pressing the amiibo on your controller will invite an Animal Crossing character to your island. You will also be able to use them in photo shoots on the island of Photopia.

Not all amiibo will work at launch – for example DJ KK is not available – but Nintendo says support for additional characters is pending.

If you still have the amiibo cards from Animal Crossing: New Leaf , Happy Home Designer or amiibo Festival , they will still work in New Horizons . These 450 postcards are divided into four series and a set of 9 greeting cards0009 New Leaf .

90,000 Amiibo Zelda Restocks Go Online Ahead of Tears of the Kingdom Release

It looks like the various The Legend of Zelda franchise amiibo figures will be re-released in time for the release of Tears of the Kingdom.

Fans of the Legend of Zelda may want to pre-order all the Zelda amiibo they are missing, as massive restocking has been seen in one part of the world. Considering the use of these small figurines in Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild , it’s not hard to imagine that they could come in handy again in the upcoming Tears of the Kingdom sequel, , which will be released on May 12, 2023.

Players of Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild may remember that amiibos provided various in-game bonuses to those who scanned them. While non-Zelda figurines could be scanned for bonuses, some Zelda-themed figurines gave unique results, such as Major’s Mask Link or Skyward Sword Link, which gave the user unique sets of armor to equip.

AFTERWORD: The Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom OLED for Switch has reportedly been leaked online

According to Nintendo Wire, French e-commerce site fnac has seen a massive amount of pre-orders for most of the Zelda amiibo. According to the site, most of the figures will be re-released in France on February 3rd. The relaunch includes figures such as Majora’s Mask Link, Wolf Link, Archer Link and Wind Waker Link, just to name a few. This led to speculation that these toys would be used in the sequel. Interestingly, no mention of Zelda and Lofting’s latest amiibo from Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD was not seen.

While these finds are currently limited to France, a global announcement is expected to be made soon detailing the functions of these amiibo in the game world, which may lead to a global restocking later on.
