With the ongoing fiasco of Nintendo’s inability to keep up with the demand for Amiibo, many thought the company may right its wrongs with the upcoming release of the Amiibo cards. However, this does not seem to be the case according to this post in the Amiibo subreddit.

These Amiibo cards are said to function exactly like the currently available figurines, just being made of paper instead of plastic. This looked like a great alternative for collectors to get the Amiibo functionality of certain characters they wanted but couldn’t get for a reasonable price. This doesn’t seem to be the case anymore, as we’re now seeing a repeat of what originally happened.
What do you think of this shortage? Let us know in the comments!
