Amiibo fans, World of Nintendo collectors, and fans of toys of all kinds may have just gotten some great news: Toys“R”Us might not be out of the picture after all. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that the retailer will be reorganized and revived after a formal assessment of the brand’s value. While it did receive bids for various assets, it has decided that this alternative could be a better plan instead.

The company would maintain its licensing agreements and identity — which for amiibo, Nintendo, and Pokémon fans could lead to a return of ready availability of those products. To what extent remains to be seen.

While this does not signal the return of the already closed and sold store locations, it looks like this might be a new beginning. We’ll be keeping an eye on this as it all develops, and we hope it plays out in a way that caters to our favorite figures around.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
