A reliable source has shown us screencaps of an internal GameStop search that shows what appears to be 12 amiibo-priced SKUs ($12.99), as well as 3 Nintendo Switch SKUs. We’ve been told that just because a test SKU is in the system doesn’t necessarily mean it will be used, and since recent prices of amiibo have been $15.99 we’re not totally convinced these will all turn out to be amiibo, but we’ve got our fingers crossed.
What could be coming? We’ll have to wait until Tuesday to find out for sure!
Andrew has been a nerd his whole life. He built his first computer when he was 8, started working in the IT industry at 15, and played competitive Counter-Strike at 16. His interest in amiibo started before their release but didn’t really take off until after the new year. He doesn’t like to admit it but Little Mac and WFT are among the amiibo that he had pre-ordered from Amazon but cancelled before their release. Little did he know a few months later he’d help start Amiibo Alerts. Gaming has always been his passion. He grew up with an NES, Sega Genesis, and PS2 before realizing that PCs truly are better than consoles.
The urge to be a little better, brought on by being a gamer, is what pushes him to help make Amiibo Alerts and Nintendeal amazing communities. Together with the team he has built, he is realizing a life-long dream: bringing something helpful and fun to a large group of people. Andrew’s role at Amiibo Alerts and Nintendeal as Founder and Editor in Chief allows him to create and build contacts within the community, review and present products, and stay on top of all things Nintendo.
