The second variant amiibo card has been announced, and this time it features the ever popular character, K.K. Slider! This will be the third K.K. Slider card made available to collectors. The first card in Series 1 (number 002) featured the favorite pup in his popular DJ getup. The second card (number 101) showcased classic K.K. holding his guitar. This newest amiibo card (labeled “CP” instead of a number) shows K.K. mid-walk and talk with his black guitar case slung over his shoulder. How cute!

This exclusive card and the special plastic slipcase included with it (seen in the above photo) can only be found inside the latest issue of Japan’s Pikopuri magazine, which can currently be viewed and purchased on Amazon Japan. And if you haven’t already heard, Amazon Japan now allows international shipping with select video game items. So if you’re interested in ordering a copy of this Pikopuri issue for the amiibo card, you may want to consider setting up your own Amazon Japan account. We’ve created a step-by-step tutorial for how you can do that. You can check that out here.

The first exclusive variant card featured a smiling version of Isabelle and was released last August. The Isabelle variant remains to be the rarest amiibo card to date and has seen its fair share of higher priced listings on sites like eBay since its release. I think it’s safe to say that this new K.K. Slider variant will most likely hold the same rarity.

Like many fans, I’ve been wondering when we’d get another special card, so this news is most definitely a pleasant surprise. Let’s hope this trend continues so we can continue adding these rarer collectible cards to our continually growing amiibo card collections!

Order this issue of Pikopuri magazine on Amazon Japan to get the exclusive K.K. Slider amiibo card today!
