Nintendo announced via Twitter which characters would be making an appearance in the third wave of Amiibos released.

In the group, Toon Link is shown alongside 11 other Amiibos, such as Mega Man, Sonic, and Shulk. Personally, I have been waiting for Toon Link since the announcement of Amiibos, as his art style and pose are a perfect fit with the Nintendo NFCs.

In addition to the announcement, they made sure to point to the official Amiibo commercial to promote the figurines on their YouTube channel.

Nintendo UK also gave more specific dates on release. Toon Link, Rosalina, Bowser, Lucario, Sheik, and Ike will be available in the UK January 23 2015, while the other five Amiibos will be released February 2 2015.

I know I’ll be getting Toon Link, Mega Man, and Sonic. Will you be picking up any of these Amiibos?

    Assuming they’re not part of the Loot Crate deal, I’ll be picking up Sonic and Megaman, along with Shulk from GameStop. If those two ARE part of the LC, I’ll see if I can just import them from Nintendo EU. Still waiting for Ganondorf… got Link on pre-order, getting Zelda for Christmas, I need the final member of the Triforce Trifecta.

    Toon Link will be my 2nd amiibo. I’m getting Link for free fro Toys R Us with Smash Bros Wii U.
    Any guesses what Link from Wind Waker will unlock in Hyrule Warriors? Ooh! The Skull Hammer could really bring the pain!

    Would be neat if Toon Link did some costume/weapon unlocks in Hyrule Warriors 🙂

  • I’ll definitely get Megaman and if I’ve got enough spare money, I’ll also buy Toon Link. Or if they come to Finland quickly enough I’ll get them as a birthday present… I’m not sure about Megaman, but Toon Link could be in Finland by feb 6th maybe?
