Walmart recently listed Amiibo cards for Animal Crossing, which surely is an exciting news for fans of all things Nintendo. One pack of cards will include 6 cards and will cost $6 (5.96).
That means you’ll be paying $1 per card, which might put some people off. However, if millions of Amiibo figurine can sell for $12 each, surely these cards will do well too.
On the other hand, for only $3 you can get 10 Pokémon or Hearthstone cards, so the question is Animal Crossing pack worth it? To me, it doesn’t feel like something that fans should be spending their money on.
However, by all means if you wish to buy them, feel free to do so.
On a related note, Nintendo is currently working on its new home console called NX. The system is a successor to Wii U and more details are expected to be shared next year.
It will be interesting to see how Nintendo takes its lost market share back with NX. Pricing, hardware and developer support is going to be crucial for Nintendo’s new console.
What are your expectations from the NX? Do you think it will bring Nintendo back into the game?
