Ever since Amiibo was launched, Nintendo’s line of toys-to-life figures has been plagued with shortages. In an interview with Wall Street Journal, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aimé has revealed that the gaming giant is still working on meeting demand for the product line. “It is a manufacturing process that takes some time,” said Fils-Aimé, “and we had to scale up our supply chain, and it’s still scaling up to try and meet that demand.” Fils-Aimé says Amiibo sales through the end of march amount to 10.5 million units sold, and with the multitude of upcoming figures showcased at E3, that number won’t stop climbing any time soon.

Hi, I'm Alex. I'm a lifelong Nintendo fan and PC gamer. A few of my all-time favourite video games include The Legend of Zeldas: Twilight Princess and Majora's Mask, Mass Effect 2, Rayman 2, and most importantly, Xenoblade. If I ever catch you making a "really feeling it" joke in our comments, you can bet your ass I'll hide it, you casual scum. Feel free to send me a private message if you have something you'd like to discuss... or if you just want to say hi!
