Worldwide amiibo sales are blossoming. About 5.7 million figures have sold which equates to at least 74 million dollars for the toy figures.
That's majorly impressive and I don't think Nintendo even dreamed that this would happen! Now if you excuse me, I'll keep trying to find a Captain Falcon and Rosalina...
I agree that is awesome news! I have two captain falcons... wish their was a way I could hook you up. Both are still in the box.
the most lamest game accessory ever created and just makes ton of money for nintendo... while it is the most cheap,ultra maneygrabbing strategy , people fell for it ..
Holy crap. Imagine if there weren't shortages.
I think the shortages actually made sales higher, many people want to order an amiibo when it is available due to it's rariarity.
I lost interest as soon as i realized i couldnt find one i wanted for less than 40 bucks
My God. And to think that I only have 2 of them.
Now that's how you make a quick buck without charging for fuel -_-
Impressive. On another note: I'm still waiting for Zero Suit Samus. Come on, Nintendo.
At this rate Amiibo's will be outselling the Wii U!! Easy money!
It is a quick buck, but kudos to Nintendo for providing something people clearly want. 6million amiibos will provide them the same income as a 1.5-2million selling game but for a fraction of the cost and resource to them as a business.I bet they see a very nice margin on them!
And I want to remind you that they achieved 5.7 million in just a little more than a month, from November 21st 2014 to the beginning of January 2015...I would just say that these numbers are UNBELIEVABLE O_O
Crazy Sales but im not really suprised. Skylanders sell like cray but then they are as loved and known as Nintendo Characters are.
