Amiibo. Rare icons of gaming history. While many endeavor to gather and preserve them, others still seek to profiteer from their scarcity.

In this thread, we discuss the bank accounts and relationships we sacrifice to build shrines to our childhood.

There's too many of these things to list here -- Check out this wiki or the official list instead.

    Have they said anything about the Animal Crossing Amiibo cards?

    The one bit of news I heard about AC cards is... *sigh* there's a supply issue in Japan with them.

    here's a big image with all the cards:
    r0k0bHi.jpg

    the first 17 are rare (only one of those per pack), so buying 17 packs will "guarantee" a full set with 1-to-1 trading (in america anyway, apparently everyone else is getting hosed with smaller packs)

    edit: oh, and it looks like scanning the villager figure into happy home designer gives you a gold statue item

    What I want to know are they like CCGs and their pack like stuff as you get trash and maybe a useful card every once in awhile

  • pablo_pricepablo_price Registered User regular
    edited August 2015
    every card is a character and, if I understand correctly, is thus a "level" for home designer

    the 17 rare/special cards are mostly the major NPCs, and thus (some of?) those cards may work in animal crossing party like their figure counterparts(??)

    I also got a Wii Fit the same day but how can you tell if it's the old one or the new one other than the larger breasts

  • pablo_pricepablo_price Registered User regular
    1. the new one doesn't actually have bigger breasts, that was just people being dumb. the only difference on the figure is that the paint job is much more likely to be clean, especially on the blue waistband
    2. second printing amiibos have a new 3ds on the back of the package. thus far, first printings have only had the gamepad on there. (for NA packaging anyway, idk about imports)

    The Nintendo CSR Report 2015 was recently published. In the digest version, there’s a big focus on amiibo, including a few interviews.

    One portion of the report features an interview with Nintendo’s Masaki Amano. He spoke about the challenges faced in developing amiibo at one point, noting:

    Nintendo has developed a variety of game systems such as Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. However, amiibo development was extremely challenging because we couldn’t use our existing knowledge at all and had to proceed through everything by trial and error.

    For example, when we make a game system we usually make a mold of each part by cutting the metal directly from 3D data using a drill or some other tool. For a figure, however, you use almost no machinery at all to make the mold, and do everything by hand instead. For amiibo, we started by creating a master. We then took this master apart to consider how to easily coat colors or create each mold. Link, for example, has 24 separate pieces.

    We took a cast of the first mold by pressing clay into each part of the master and then coating it with silicon. Finally, after repeatedly duplicating the mold with harder substances, we used iron to create a metal mold. Although we could not apply our existing knowledge or experiences, we learned along the way as we pursued absolute quality.

    That wasn’t the only notable element from the Nintendo CSR Report 2015. We also get a look at how Nintendo tests amiibo for safety and reliability. See the image below.

    Pre-Order? Not an actual sale? That seems like a poor choice considering you can "win" the Pre-Order event then then lose because whoops not enough stock was shipped because no one knows how much stores will get!

  • cloudeaglecloudeagle Registered User regular
    I think they've wised up and are limiting pre-orders to the amount of actual stock on hand. But who the hell knows. The one thing I do know is that I'll be out of town that day and I'll need to call in a favor to a friend.

    Uh... no? Sorry, not what I meant.

    Ness (and well all of wave 4 really) went up for preorder, and all stores took them, with no regard to actual stock (which they didn't know) or cutoff point. Then stores find out they're only getting something like ~4 Ness per store. So cue the calls to people telling them their preorder has been canceled.

    Same thing happened with Robin and Lucina, of which stores got even less of.

    There's rumors they've absolutely stopped doing preorders period for amiibos, to avoid this clusterfuck in the future.

    edit: I'm a boob, I read that as "The Canadians must've been lucky", not 'This" Canadian...". :P

    Either way, that's what happened. Was real shitty. :(

    Yeah, that's what I meant. I managed to push through after about 5-10 minutes of attempts on EBGames' site and got a preorder in. Despite the website not recognizing my order number I still got confirmation e-mails, and Ness arrived safely. I don't remember hearing about Ness preorders getting cancelled, but I might have just forgotten.

    Whatever the case, I wouldn't worry about it. They obviously know their stock numbers here. They aren't going to oversell.

    Only time there are actually problems are when they don't know stock ahead of time, which I think is why most places have been waiting quite awhile to open amiibo preorders ever since post-wave 3.
