ryuamiibo2Three new Smash Bros. Series amiibo are coming to Australia on March 19.

R.O.B is getting his second amiibo, making him the first character outside the Mushroom Kingdom cast to get two amiibo, and no, Turbo Charge Donkey Kong doesn’t count.

This new one features everyone’s favourite robot in his red and grey colours, the way he appeared when he was bundled with the Famicom all those years ago.

Street Fighter’s Ryu is coming as well, and he’s sure to be incredibly popular. It’s not only Smash fans and amiibo collectors wanting this one- it’s the Street Fighter fans too, and there’s a hell of a lot of them of all ages.

It’ll be interested to see how the supply is managed with Ryu. I think he’s going to be one of the biggest sellers ever.

Rounding out the three R’s is Fire Emblem’s Roy. Roy’s a Smash Bros. veteran now, so it’s good to see him finally getting an amiibo, he is far more deserving than Lucina or Robin.

I’ll post any bargains for these three new amiibo as I see them.

Thanks to ebgames.com.au for the pic of Ryu.5

NFP_logo_0702_cmyk_fix_cs6_CTarget stores are selling single amiibo figures for $14 from now until Christmas Day.

They usually hover around the $17 mark so this ain’t too bad.

Now if only I could find a Smash Brothers Series Peach.

shulkamiibo2Until 10am tomorrow, EB Games Australia are offering selected amiibo in a deal where you can pick ten of them for $99.

For the mathematics fans, that works out to $9.9o each, surely the cheapest the figures have ever been at Australian retail.

Here’s the link.

NFP_logo_0702_cmyk_fix_cs6_CThe first lot of Animal Crossing amiibo have hit Australia, and while I’m only interested in a few, god knows there are an absolute tonne of Animal Crossing fans eager to snap these up.

You’ll get the standalone figures for $15, and the ridiculous Wii U amiibo Festival game with two amiibo for $58.

Also, Big W has the Mega Yarn Yoshi amiibo for $48. Ludicrous.

targetlogoIf you’re like me and were hanging out for a physical copy of this acclaimed indie game, you’ve got to be happy with this price.

It’s a shame the amiibo isn’t launching alongside the disc, but hey- this is another fantastic game in Wii U’s ever impressive library.

Is Wii U on track to have the best line-up of games of any console in history?

vjoe1 When one thinks of criminally under used video game personalities, the likeable, versatile, funny, cape-wearing Viewtiful Joe sits right at the top of the list.

With two incredible games on PS2 and Gamecube, a Gamecube exclusive four player brawler, and appearances in a few of Capcom’s cross over fighting titles, Viewtiful Joe is the absolute perfect fit for Smash Bros.

Whether or not Sakurai and his team are looking for “perfect fits” is still a contentious issue.

I mean, who would have thought Duck Hunt Duo or Wii Fit Trainer would ever have made the cut in Nintendo’s biggest and best gaming spectacle?

Regardless, Viewtiful Joe deserves more love, and he’s already proven he can hold his own with the big guns in the world of high profile fighting games.

That’s why he got a vote from me.

Henshin a go-go baby!

Here’s my first and second votes in the ballot

NFP_logo_0702_cmyk_fix_cs6_CFrom now until Wednesday October 7, Target Australia are selling amiibo figures for $14.

They advise figures will vary from store to store.

$14 isn’t too bad considering the going rate in Australia is usually around the $17 mark.

I’ve got to find me a Smash Bros. Peach!
