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.
Other news includes:
The first of the amiibo features for Star Fox Zero was revealed. The Fox amiibo will unlock a SNES style arwing to use within the game along with music and sound effects from the SNES game.
Confirmation that Series 4 of the Animal Crossing amiibo cards will be out 17th June.
The box art for Metroid Prime: Federation Force shows an amiibo logo, but we yet to hear what the functionality will be.
