This week has already been a roller coaster ride for amiibo – a full baker’s dozen (thirteen) was dropped on Tuesday alone. But if you’re still missing out on some of the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild amiibo and/or crossing your fingers for Majora’s Mask Link to be available at launch then don’t despair. Nintendo’s CPSIA site has updated Link (Rider), Link (Archer), Guardian, Zelda and Majora’s Mask Link with a new print run during May 2017.

We’re definitely keeping an eye out for when these arrive and extremely excited that fans who missed out will have another chance to secure these guys!

Who are you missing?

    Great so they will make 100 of each then send an email for preorders when everyone is at work and scalpers will buy them up and we will be back to paying three times their value on eBay.
    I just don’t understand Nintendo. All I want is to give them money to buy these things but I can’t. Buying ten pound pieces of plastic shouldn’t be this difficult.

    And what about Smash Bros Link!? I know he technically isn’t from Breath of the Wild, but he’s out of stock too, and you can use him in Breath of the Wild to get Epona and the Hero of Time Ensemble. Please tell me he wasn’t discontinued.

    Zay zay – I thought the hunt was over until this year… Luckily we’re seeing reprints done much faster compared to the first year of amiibo. Just have a bit of patience and we’ll see our favorites back in stores and at retail prices.

    Kal72 – From what I’ve seen, Nintendo did print more figures, but not the right ones. We’re all swimming in Animal Crossing amiibo and combine that with the Toys-to-Life bubble, Nintendo is playing it smart from a financial/business point of view. Given the enthusiasm and demand for The Legend of Zelda amiibo, we will probably see multiple reprints of them throughout the year (due in part to DLC releases of BotW). I encourage you to e-mail Nintendo that you want to be able to purchase these amiibo at retail prices. Nintendo does listen and with enough feedback they’ll make the necessary changes. In the meantime, we’ll report when these amiibo are in stock via AmiiboNews on Twitter.

    Kasey Schwenzfeier – Super Smash Bros. Link was one of the most popular and print amiibo, initially. Nintendo might bring him back later on (especially when Smash comes to the Switch), but due to distribution/printing they’ll probably focus on newer amiibo. As for Ocarina of Time Link, he hasn’t been printed since last year. I’m crossing my fingers that the 30th Anniversary series will get a reprint, especially given that the next three are retailer exclusive, but I wouldn’t double down on that. If you want any specific amiibo, I encourage you to write to Nintendo so that they see the demand for these characters.
