Marth Amiibo Figure is Returning to Store Shelves
In case you missed out on Marth's first sales run, the good news is that he will be coming back out soon.
Nintendo's amiibo figures have flown off the shelves whenever there's a new one put on the market and now it's giving its fans another chance to own one of the most popular figures it came out with, Marth. Usually when a figure sells out, you have to resort to third-party retailers and pay inflated prices for the character you love, but this time you won't have to, Gamespot reports. Nintendo of America has announced on its Twitter that more Marth figures will be releasing. However, it didn't announce just how many figures will be releasing so, if you're dead set on getting a Marth figure, you might want to make sure that you're waiting on line as soon as they go live.
The one downside to Marth's release is that it will come a month after the release of Code Name: STEAM this month. Although you'll be able to get your Marth figure eventually, you'll have to play without him for a while. Marth won't be the only one missing from your Code Name: STEAM roster, unfortunately. Robin and Lucina will be joining him in the spring.
When Nintendo President Satoru Iwata was asked about the release patterns and dates of sold out amiibo figures, he explained that Nintendo just can't always stock every figure:
It is difficult for us to promise to continuously ship all of the Amiibo figures. We will, however, consider additional production in cases such as when an Amiibo figure sells out shortly after launch, an Amiibo is indispensable to play a certain game, and when we receive a lot of requests for an Amiibo figure from consumers and retailers.
At least for now, the Marth restock is set for April. While there are no set release dates as of yet, we still have a whole month to get ready for Nintendo's next announcement that will surely contain one.
