Amiibo lovers rejoice! Both the Bowser and Bowser Jr. amiibo will be receiving reprints in time for the release of Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury on February 12th! This fantastic news was shared in Nintendo’s press release concerning the game today:



Two new amiibo figures will be launching alongside the game and available for purchase separately at select retailers. Both the new Cat Mario and Cat Peach amiibo will offer in-game enhancements for Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury. Bowser and Bowser Jr. also have large roles to play in Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, and their amiibo figures, which will also be returning for purchase at select retailers, have special activations in Bowser’s Fury, too.”


The Bowser amiibo that is being reprinted is from the Super Smash Bros. instead of the one from the Super Mario Bros. line, according to a recent update on Nintendo’s CPSIA page (Bowser Jr.’s only amiibo figure is from the Super Smash Bros. line).

Combine this news with the release of the all-new Cat Mario and Cat Peach amiibo, the amazing news that the Bowser’s Fury addition to the game will be an open-world affair, and the gorgeous new Super Mario themed Switch, and it’s clear that this game is a bigger deal than we all initially believed! Pun very much intended.
