The first full Nintendo Direct of the year came a couple of days ago, so lets cover the amiibo news.

Unfortunately, there wasn't that much. In fact I was worried there wasn't going to be any new amiibo coming at all as Nintendo waited right to the last few minutes to reveal a new range of amiibo.

There is going to be a range of Kirby amiibo that ties in with the a 3DS game, Kirby: Planet Robobot. Out on 10th June, there will be new amiibo for Kirby, King Dedede and Meta Knight as well as an amiibo for Waddle Dee.
