January 22 marks a major release date for amiibo: Lucas, Animal Crossing wave 2 in both figures and cards, will all be releasing at all retailers that sell amiibo.
Lucas, from the Super Smash Bros. series, is not retail exclusive. Although one should remember that during preorders for Lucas, he crashed GameStop’s servers due to high demand. Amiibo from the less popular Animal Crossing series will also be launching with wave 2 figures: Blathers, Celeste, Kicks and Mr. Resetti, all of which are compatible with amiibo Festival for Wii U. Next up is another amiibo product, the amiibo cards series 2, in relation to Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer also launches. These amiibo fared better than the ones for amiibo Festival, as at face value, is less expensive than traditional amiibo figures and works with both games.
