During Nintendo’s financial meeting today, president Satoru Iwata stated that the company will consider producing additional copies of hard-to-find Amiibo.
While we already knew that Nintendo is planning to produce more Marth figures, other Amiibo (such as the Villager and Rosalina figures) are still quite rare; however, Iwata stated that Amiibo that “have quickly become scarce and those that are required for play in games” could also be receiving additional batches, provided that there is enough consumer and retailer demand.
Here are Iwata’s comments on the matter:
“It is difficult for us to promise to continuously ship all of the amiibo figures. We will, however, consider additional production in cases such as when an amiibo figure sells out shortly after launch, an amiibo is indispensable to play a certain game, and when we receive a lot of requests for an amiibo figure from consumers and retailers.” — Satoru Iwata
