The official Nintendo UK Store was updated recently, and it appears that the release dates for the Falco No.52 amiibo, and many others, are right around the corner. Nintendo UK pre-orders are open to collectors in the region, for the Falco No. 52. This new amiibo costs £10.99 and is listed for a November 20, 2015, release date.
The pre-order release comes as Nintendo prepares to launch a new lineup of amiibo figurines in the months to come. Sounds pretty exciting, right? If you are in the region, be sure to check out Nintendo UK’s official page for more details on how to get your hands on the new figure. Die-hard collector’s will want to add Falco to their growing collection. However, it is important to note that there is a limit of one per customer.
The official description for Falco No. 52 is as follows:
“A talented pilot and part of the Star Fox™ team, Falco can be a bit rough around the edges. He once led his own galactic gang before joining up with Fox. He affects an air of cool disdain and is sometimes uncooperative, but in reality his passion for Star Fox is second to none.”
Amiibo figurines, also known as “amiibo”, were launched in November of 2014. They work by using near field communication (NFC) to interact with Nintendo’s Wii U GamePad and the New Nintendo 3DS handheld gaming series. Recent reports from Nintendo allege that over 21 million amiibo units have been sold, as of October 29, 2015.
Today marks the release date for the Mii Swordfighter, Mii Gunner, and Mii Brawler amiibo figurines. Amiibo collectors should prepare for the forthcoming lineup of figurines coming soon. Check out the list of expected launch dates below:
