Collector’s Editions No Longer Eligible for Amazon Prime Discounts

June 03rd, 2017 | Category: Uncategorized

Amazon Prime members will no longer receive a 20 percent discount on video game collector’s editions pre-orders, according to the company’s updated FAQ.

However, the updated policy does not yet appear to be in effect, as it is still possible to find collector’s editions eligible for the discount.

While not in the FAQ, customers are reporting that Prime discounts are also no longer being applied to toys-to-life products, like the recently-released Fire Emblem Echoes amiibo.

Animal Crossing: New Leaf Free amiibo Update is Out Now

November 02nd, 2016 | Category: Uncategorized

At the start of today’s Animal Crossing: New Leaf Nintendo Direct, series producer Hisashi Nogami surprise announced that the game’s big amiibo update is now available to download.

As part of the update, towns get a new RV Campground area, where players can meet special villagers from amiibo cards and figures. By becoming friends with these villagers, players can ask them to move into their town permanently or even receive items, like a Wii U or New 3DS, that unlock the new mini-games Desert Island Escape and Animal Crossing Puzzle League.

There is even non-amiibo content in the new update. Players can now complete daily or weekly tasks called Town Initiatives to earn new Mutual Exchange of Wealth or MEOW Coupons. These coupons can be exchanged for exclusive items at the RV Campground or visiting animals.

Tom Nook also has a new house renovation for sale – a hidden storeroom that players can access from anywhere in their house. Additionally, once it is built, players get the ability to reorganize their furniture with the 3DS touchscreen.

As a bonus for players that have Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, their save data can be linked to New Leaf to unlock 20 giant furniture items that can be purchased in Timmy and Tommy’s store.

This December, Nintendo plans to re-release a physical version of the game, titled Animal Crossing: New Leaf – Welcome amiibo, that includes the updated content. Also, on December 2, the company will launch the next set of Animal Crossing amiibo cards.

Free Weed Removal for Returning Animal Crossing: New Leaf Players This Fall

September 12th, 2016 | Category: Uncategorized

Animal Crossing: New Leaf players may be interested in playing again when amiibo support gets added to the game this fall, but turned off by the idea of having to deal with all the weeds that have grown unchecked all over town in their absence.

Nintendo knows this, which is why they are offering complimentary landscaping when the update goes live. Now players can jump right into the new content without worry. Well, except for maybe some passive-aggressive remarks from villagers that haven’t seen you in a while.

There is a mini Nintendo Direct planned for this fall that will presumably reveal more about what is coming in the future update.

With the new iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus and Apple Watch Series 2 including support for FeliCa Type-F NFC contactless technology, Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto expressed some interest in possibly utilizing the tech to bring amiibo to smartphones.

“There’s nothing we can announce today but it’s certainly an area we’re interested in,” Miyamoto told IGN, “and today Apple announced some new news about their NFC technology.”

He went on to add,

“Until the announcement this morning there wasn’t a whole lot we could do, but now we can look at what they’ve said and how we might have an opportunity to use that.”
