The Most Popular Amiibo of 2015

/ Feb 3rd, 2016 No Comments

Nintendo Ambiio Release Date

During a briefing regarding its third quarter fiscal results, Nintendo revealed some details regarding its surprising money maker, amiibo. Nintendo has shipped more than 31 million real-life figures with in-game capabilities worldwide, and nearly 10 million were sold during the third quarter.

Selling 9.9 million amiibo over the past three months, Nintendo saw the highest sales of any quarter ever for the figures. That figure is more than double the amount of sales achieved by the Wii U’s best-selling game, Splatoon, during that same time period.

Nintendo also revealed which amiibo sold best in Japan, the U.S. and Europe in 2015.

Link from The Legend of Zelda series was the top-selling amiibo in the U.S. while Toon Link ranked third. Bowser amiibo sold the second most.

In Japan, the Inkling Girl, Inkling Squid and Inkling Boy were the top three selling amiibo in 2015. The characters from the unique shooter Splatoon were not among the top 10 selling amiibo in America.

The best-selling amiibo in Europe was the classic Mario, with Link second and the Inkling Squid third. Green Yarn Yoshi, which may be the cutest amiibo ever, took in the fourth most sales in Europe.

Quick Take

While Wii U sales are nowhere near what Nintendo was initially hoping when it released the console, collectors have stepped in to save Nintendo’s profit by purchasing amiibo. With the NX console and mobile titles on the way, Nintendo will likely continue to integrate amiibo support into its products.
