Within the Nintendo’s annual financial report were details on amiibo sales over the past fiscal year. Unlike Disney Infinity, Skylanders, and LEGO Dimensions; Nintendo has defied the odds and increased sales of their version of the toys-to-life model.
Approximately 10.3 million figures and 5.8 million amiibo cards were sold from March 31, 2017 to March 31, 2018. During the 2017 financial statement, 9.1 million units of figures and 9.3 million units for cards were sold.
Amiibo card sales have largely decreased due to Nintendo decreasing production since the Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer line and the Mario Sports Superstars Collection.
Nintendo continues to deliver quality amiibo content, including The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild: The Champions series amiibo; the highly detailed Super Mario Odyssey wedding amiibo’s; the long-awaited release of Cloud, Corrin, and Bayonetta; and dozens of other new figures, including amiibo from Metroid, Fire Emblem, Detective Pikachu, and many more.
