Waddle dee is the latest
If you’re keen on some Kirby amiibo restocks just in time for The Forgotten Land, Amazon has been getting some lately in waves, seemingly without warning.
Those Kirby amiibo restocks include the Smash edition of King Dedede, the blue base Kirby figure (on a star), blue base Meta Knight, and Waddle Dee. While several of those are out of stock or are now above MSRP, Waddle Dee is currently available with Japanese packaging. All of these are being recirculated as a result of recent CPSIA certificates, and extend to five total amiibo reprints (the aforementioned four, and Byleth). It’s possible more will shuffle in, so keep an eye out and set up some alerts.
Keep in mind that this PSA mostly impacts collectors, as the amiibo gameplay functionality as it relates to The Forgotten Land is very minimal. As we discussed in our preview writeup, tapping amiibo to the NFC point will grant you bonus items, which you can otherwise find in-game. You can tap five figures per level, and you can’t repeat the same figure until you’ve finished a stage.
So you can skip them! But if you don’t own many amiibo yet, grabbing a Waddle Dee for under MSRP at the moment isn’t a bad deal, as long as your expectations are in check.
