Snake? Snake!? Snake!!!
The next wave of Nintendo amiibo are still available for preorder. Amazon is sold out of Snake and Link, but Walmart and Best Buy have all the upcoming amiibo available for preorder right now.
Metal Gear’s Solid Snake, Pokemon’s Ivysaur and Squirtle, and the Link’s Awakening Link are coming September 20, but you can fight your way through the trials and tribulations of online amiibo preorders now.
Where to Preorder the Next Wave of Amiibo
Solid Snake Amiibo Preorder
When preorders first went up, Solid Snake went fast. Amazon is completely sold out, but Walmart and Best Buy still have them available. If you get all the amiibo from Walmart, you can get them shipped for free, which is a nice bonus.
Link’s Awakening Amiibo Preorder + Dreamer Edition In-Stock
Similar to Solid Snake, the Link’s Awakening amiibo is also sold out at Amazon. But there’s no wonder: this is maybe my favorite amiibo from the next wave. It’s not a Smash series amiibo, obviously, and Nintendo still hasn’t clued us in on what functionality it will have with Link’s Awakening. But who cares! Look at that little fella.
Squirtle Amiibo Preorder
One of the most adorable of the new amiibo, Squirtle preorders are available without any problems.
Ivysaur Amiibo Preorder
The Ivysaur Amiibo is one of the best ones in a long time, in my opinion. I’d go so far as to say this is maybe the best Pokemon amiibo yet. Just look at the detail.
Check out these high-res images of the next wave of amiibo, including Incineroar, Chrom, Simon Belmont, Richter Belmont and Dark Samus.
Incineroar, Chrom and Simon Belmont are scheduled for a November release. Richter and Dark Samus have a 2020 release window.
